60 Seconds With… The Morrisons


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

We are called the Morrisons and I sit around looking dazed and getting distracted by shiny objects, in other words, I’m the drummer.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

The only way to answer a cliché is with another cliché.  We sound like a bucket of drowning grasshoppers. 

What do you love about making music?

I love that the louder and faster I play, the more people like me.   

What do you hate about the music industry?

Guitarists, don’t we all? They’re everywhere.

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

I’d go back to the 1940s and show Gene Krupa our music. He’d probably die of a heart attack but on the off chance that he didn’t I’d be able to say, “Gene, you may be better, more creative and a complete visionary but I’m so much louder”.

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it be and why?



What can a punter expect from your live show?

Fun. We’re fast and loud but there’s still something to dance to. There will also be music and usually beer.


What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

We’ve got a self titled CD for sale and for a small amount extra we might just sell our dignity.


When’s the gig and with who?

Wednesday January 25 at Pony with Udays Tiger and King Of The North.


Anything else to add?

Pete wears ladies’ underwear.
