NASS Festival 2012 is mere days away and to get you well and truly in the mood we sat down with The Computers to find out what they’ve got in store for you on July 7th. Plus our favourite UK punks fill us in on their intriguing sketch show and why you should always take your Dad’s advice.
WAITT: Alright guys, The Computers are hitting up NASS Festival this year, what can festival goers expect from you at this years event? Got any surprises for the festival circuit this summer?
The Computers: Festival goers will be allowed for approximately 35 minutes to marvel at the fine spectacle that is The Computers.
WAITT: At shows we can often find The Computers taking their performance off stage and into almost any part of a venue imaginable, is this unrestrained live attack amplified at festivals or do you have to reign it in a bit?
The Computers: The Computers may well take the 'performance' out into the sea of lucky, lucky children. The Computers will not compromise their stage antics according to their surroundings.
WAITT: Recently you’ve been pushing a brand new track titled “A Real Testimonial” does this mean you’ve already started work on the follow up to your debut album “This Is The Computers”?
The Computers: 'A Real Testimonial' was a track that The Computers recorded at the same time as recording the hit album 'This Is The Computers'. This track was saved to put out as a limited run for 500 lucky, lucky children when The Computers toured with Pulled Apart By Horses. The Computers' latest and greatest works have been recorded and will be set free into the wild world quite soon.
WAITT: The Computers have always been a band that push the boundaries whether it’s the physical boundaries between stages and audiences or musical boundaries like slamming in a blistering harmonic solo amongst punk-fuelled mayhem. Is this something we’re going to see more of with the new Computers material?
The Computers: The Computers have destroyed many lives and conquered many stages in many cities in just a few years. The Computers will continue to do so with their latest and greatest songs. Consider this your warning!
WAITT: Your debut really paved the way for a much more mainstream status for the band, has it been a triumphant experience to play shows packed full of Computers fans? Or do you miss having to prove it to the world every night on support bills?
The Computers: The Computers have missed every show they have ever done, the ones that they have supported on were good for them, but it is really nice for The Computers to see Computers children shouting at them in words and movement.
WAITT: Being in the scene that you are you’ve really given it your all at every show to get to where you are today, and it’s an experience a lot of bands could learn a lot from. With that in mind what piece of advice would you give to unsigned and underground artists looking to reach the same heights that The Computers has?
The Computers: The Computers just do what their dads tell them to do, which is lucky because it is the same thing that The Computers would do left to The Computers' own devises. So The Computers say for the children to do what The Computers' dads did and tell someone else to do it.
WAITT: A lot of bands write, record and tour and then wet, rinse, repeat. The Computers have always gone the extra mile and had a great connection with their fans; creating personalized records and signed albums for fans to collect and enjoy. What made you decide to put the time into hand making the artwork for singles like “Music Is Dead” instead of just sending them all to the printers?
The Computers: The Computers have many illusions to show the world. The Computers formulated the in-genius idea to force their families and acquaintances to create whatever they could be bothered to put on a sleeve. Everybody in the world would like The Computers to tell them what to do, The Computers know what's best.
WAITT: The Computers have had some interesting experiences from the milestones of Radio 1 airplay to being interviewed on American News at an airport, but what has been the best moment in The Computers musical life?
The Computers: The Computers once stayed in a lovely little apartment in Nether Netherland, to celebrate this The Computers danced together. The Computers have never shared a dull moment.
WAITT: With the Great British Summertime ahead of us, what should we look out for from The Computers camp?
The Computers: Some of the very lucky children will get the privilege of seeing The Computers perform songs from the hit album 'This Is The Computers'. The Computers might write a sketch that will never be performed or recorded, only practiced.
WAITT: There’s plenty to check out at NASS Festival this year, but what’s going to make The Computers set the highlight of NASS 2012?
The Computers: The Computers is all.
Thanks so much for your time, good luck with your summer plans and we look forward to catching The Computers live on The Front Stage on Saturday 7th July at NASS!
