Q&A with The Meds Collective

What are you listening to right now?

At the moment, I’m listening to a range of music artists from artists like Drake, Frank Ocean, Professor Green and Bruno Mars to classic artists like Run DMC, Eminem, Beastie Boys & Queen. (Answered by Mark Anthony)

How did you get into music?

From my schooldays, I was always into writing raps and was into music in a big way, so I always kind of did it as a hobby. Then a few years ago, a guy called Tony Mortimer who was in the band East 17 gave me the idea of getting some mates together to form a band and that’s how ‘The Meds Collective’ started.

Who do you follow religiously on Twitter?

The producer of our first album ‘BA Nusance’, purely because of the positive & humorous nature of his tweets. Check him out at @banusance. (Answered by Mark Anthony)

What have you been reading lately?

Music biographies. The last one I read was Damon Albarn’s. It’s a good read. (Answered by Mark Anthony)

Who is the most influential person in your life?

I hate to say the cliché answer, but definitely my mum, who raised myself & my brother single-handedly. I owe a hell of a lot to her and any success I’ve had in life has been down to the values of hard work, which my mum taught me about from a young age. (Answered by Mark Anthony)

Which song do you wish you had written?

‘Summer Holiday’ by Cliff Richards. (Answered by Hi Breed)

Does God exist?

We’re at the bar. What are you drinking?

Who would you dread getting stuck in a lift with?

American TV host Ben Hankson. (Answered by Hi Breed)

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I’d say I am doing what I wanted to do to be honest, It doesn’t really come down to at what level. I’m pretty much chasing the dream as much as living it, which I think and feel is the perfect combination. (Answered by Paul Lee)

What song will you have played at your funeral?

Alllllrighty then… Erm I don’t know, most probably ‘Mr Blue Sky’ by ELO. (Answered by Paul Lee)

What gigs, songs or albums are you promoting at the moment?

Well we’ve got quite a few gigs coming up, but we will be playing ‘The Water Rats Theatre’ in Kings Cross, London on Saturday, 25th May 2013 & we’ll also be opening ‘The Crouch End Festival’ on Friday, 7th June 2013. In terms of music…me and the boys are currently promoting our Debut album ‘Heartbreaks & Remedies’ & we’ve also just released our E.P entitled ‘Change’. Both are very much available on iTunes! (Answered by Paul Lee)

How can we find out more about you?

The best place would be our official website at www.themedscollective.net, then maybe search us in Google? I heard that we come up loads on the search. Does that mean we’re famous?? Hahaha no seriously GOOGLE for anymore info on the group. (Answered by Paul Lee)
