Interviews: Static Fires

Share:

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock/Hard Rock band Static Fires, from UK. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 


The name came following us having to abandon an older name because it was
taken. We locked ourselves in a room and promised not to leave till we found
a new name. Hours later, ‘Static Fires’ emerged! 

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

We suppose we chose to play the way we do based on our mutual interests and
influences. We’ve always liked Alt rock and ‘guitar music’ more generally. We also don’t limit ourselves too much within our genre either, flirting
with the lighter and heavier sides of our music.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed? 

Jack Clements, Sam Randles and Tom Gibbins have all known each other since Primary school and met Jack Piper when in comprehensive school. 

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Jack C- Foo Fighters
Jack P- Skillet
Sam- Queens of the Stone Age
Tom- Red Hot Chili Peppers

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

We get immense satisfaction from people responding positively to our music- that’s what gives us the inspiration to keep doing it.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Our last gig was at Fflistock, held at the Dragonffli in Pontypool.

7. Where would you like to play? 

We’d like to play a major UK festival, like Reading festival. Alternatively, we’d love to play some of the more historic music venues across the UK.

8. Who would you like to support? 

The dream would be to support Kings Of Leon.

9. Who not? 

We wouldn’t want to play with Queens of the Stone Age, because we feel they’d blow us out of the water no matter how hard we tried.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that? 

When we first started practicing together in School, Sam was so scared of singing in front of people that he hid behind the school piano in the practice room during his ‘audition’. Our tip is to remember that no matter how scared you’re feeling, the one who is most critical is you. The crowd only wants to see you do your best.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age and the Arctic Monkeys

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for? 

‘Take off your mask!’ When it wasn’t a mask. A fan tried to take the ‘mask’ (which was face paint) off of Jack P. at a Halloween gig where we all dressed as Slipknot.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We always love how supportive our fans are and we are always amazed at how
well new fans respond to our music.

14. What do you think of our site?

An incredible, vibrant art style and a very neat layout!
