SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Spectoral

theaussieword.com catches up with Spectoral for a special online chat.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?

As a kid I had organ lessons… and although I never really liked what I was learning to play on the thing, I loved being able to control deep basslines with the pedals. Looking back I think I treated it as my first synth. More often than not I just ended up playing around with the arpeggiator and all the flip-buttons, making these never ending auto-chord programmed songs, recording them onto cassette and making my family listen to them all in the car. It drove my sister crazy.Continue reading

Special Interview: Brook Chivell

theaussieword.com catches up with Brook Chivell.

Give us an introduction, how did it all begin? 
Hi Brian first let me start by thanking you so much for having me.
My mum tells me that as a toddler I used to stand up in my cot and sing little tunes. Not words but tunes. So I think that even before I knew that I loved music, I loved music. All through primary and high school  I was involved in music classes singing, playing keyboard and, every parents dreaded, recorder. Lol. When I was 17 a friend showed me the 3 chords to play ‘Wild Thing’ and the rest is history.

Special Interview: TALES

theaussieword.com catches up with Tush from Tales!

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Hey guys, It’s Tush from, Tales, and we all live in little old Adelaide! Our band started off in 2015 with our old name ‘The Winter Gypsy’. We’ve been writing ever since! My first interest in music came from pure boredom. I was recovering from an injury, and my sister had literally stopped playing guitar (she was the musician in the family) to take up photography and graphic design. As her interests changed, she gave me her guitars, taught me how to play Wonderwall, and the rest is history.Continue reading

Special Interview: Motor Ace

theaussieword.com catches up with Matt Balfe from Motor Ace.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Like most GenX kids growing up in a country town, I got into rock music early on. Many hours were spent in front of countdown, producing and trading mixed tapes recorded directly from FM radio, and later taping rage on a Saturday night. By the start of high school, I had taken up guitar and decided that being in bands was going to be my thing. Early influences included The Clash, The Cure, and the Sex Pistols. Really anything that sounded like the opposite of ABC classic FM (top of the pops in my house growing up).

Special Interview: Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe)

theaussieword.com catches up with Kav Temperley from Eskimo Joe to discuss his latest solo album ‘All Your Devotion’.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? It all began with the Beatles. At some point in time I bought myself The Beatles complete song book and by the time I had learned every song in the book at the age of 13, I was ready to start writing song of my own.Continue reading

Special Interview: Bob Evans

theaussieword.com catches up with Bob Evans.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? I was drawn to music pretty young.  When I was about 7 I used to love the tv show Fame about the performing arts school in New York.  I asked my mum to enrol me in dancing classes which I did til I was 12.  By the time I was a teenager the dancing gave way to playing guitar and lots of acting in amateur theatre productions.  When I was about 14 I discovered Ratcat which turned me on to pop songs played really loudly and noisily and soon after that I discovered Nirvana and by the time I was 15 I was a total grunge kid

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? Just trying new things and setting myself new challenges.  I’m always listening to music and looking to discover new music, often by going back rather than what is current because there is so much music from the past that I missed and want to appreciate.Continue reading
