DPC Interview Series:

Posted by Aileen Raymond Saturday, March 23, 2013 0 comments



So, give us a little background on the band and the members? 

Well the band started in 2011 when we were first year students. We met Tyan (lead guitar) and Jp (Bass) that year but only joined the band in 2012. We started the band during Stellenbosch Jool time. After seeing other bands’ performances, in our drunken state we started dreaming out loud and this is where it got us so far.


How did you all meet?


Bennie (Vox) and Nelis (Drummer) was roommates and classmates through high school. That’s when we met Sias (Rhythm Guitar). We met Jp and Tyan by gigging together, with their other band Ballistic Blues.



What does your music sound like?

Well it’s supposed to sound inspiring enough to make you wanna do something crazy and fun. As long as people enjoy our music and take something from it, we’re happy!










"A carefree and good time is what inspires our whole vibe."







Who or what inspires your music?

A carefree and good time is what inspires our whole vibe and we hope to project that to our fans.

Inspiration for our music comes from bands like Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Jet and pretty much anything that sounds good in the moment. If it makes you feel carefree it’s doing its job.


Tell us, what do you guys do before a gig?


Drink beer and talk nonsense.



...and after?

Drink beer and mingle.



What do you guys do besides making music?

Sias is doing his last year at AFDA film school, Nelis is studying to become a wine maker (thank God), we love wine. Tyan is studying to become a teacher. I think Jp got a job now, he’s making ice cream and that could come in handy. Bennie is selling his body for money if there are any takers.


Tell us your best memory since being a band?


Difficult question, probably when we played Boom.fm “On the Deck”. It was an acoustic session on the roof of the Pierhouse building in Cape Town, with an absurd amount of free alcohol and Boerie’s. It was very rock and roll.



Favourite venue or festival to play at?

Assembly, Bohemia and so far our favorite festival was RAMfest, but we still have a few to play.


...And the one festival or venue you really want to still play (local or international)?


Wembley Stadium and Woodstock Festival would be cool.



Which local artist/s would you most likely collaborate with?

There’s so many, I think we would have to go with a girl like Lucy Kruger, Chianosky or Inge Beckmann would be very cool.










 "We have the craziest fans in the world, they love drinking, every show is like our last day alive, this is what we live for."







Who is your fans? Any funny stories?

We have the craziest fans in the world, they love drinking, every show is like our last day alive, this is what we live for. There was this one time where one of our brothers JP Coetzee hooked up with a girl by saying he was Nelis, classic switcheroo.



So, after a gig we want to buy you a drink, what can we get you?

Well, a beer (Black Label), Whiskey or Jagermeister would be nice (love the Jagies).


Which venue in Cape Town has the roughest crowd?


Assembly is a pretty wild party.







"We want to go on a little tour all the way up to Centurion and stop by a few places on the way there."





Where is your next gig?

In
Bohemia, Stellenbosch on the 28th of March and you can also catch us
31st May with Van Coke Kartel at Mercury. Keep tabs on our social media
profiles though, there will be more shows in April / May.




Plans for the rest of 2013?

We want to go on a little tour all the way up to Centurion and stop by a few places on the way there, so keep your eyes peeled. We’re gonna release a few singles as well so look out for that.
