Q&A with Sebastopol

What are you listening to right now?
“Iambic 9 Poetry” by Squarepusher, from the Ultravisitor album. Astonishingly beautiful.

How did you get into music?
When I was at school my older cousin used to play me records. He had great taste.

Who do you follow religiously on Twitter?
@madmockneycook which is a fake Jamie Oliver account — though it keeps getting closed down and restarting under a new name so it might have changed by the time you read this…

What have you been reading lately?
I’m re-reading “The Passage” by Jonathan Cronin which was the inspiration for “All Eyes” on our debut album. It’s about vampires.

Who is the most influential person in your life?
My bank manager.

Which song do you wish you had written?
“Walking On The Moon” by The Police. I love the sparseness in the sound and the incredible groove — plus it’s got a great bassline.

Does God exist?

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

Who would you dread getting stuck in a lift with?
My bank manager.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
An archaeologist.

What song will you have played at your funeral?
“Gotta Get Up” by Harry Nilsson.

What gigs, songs or albums are you promoting at the moment?
Our debut album “Hello All Stations, This Is Zero” is out in September, and we’re promoting the lead track “Send The Boats”. We’re also planning a show in London which will be filmed — follow us on Twitter for details.

How can we find out more about you?
Follow us on Twitter @sebastopolband or check our website www.sebastopolband.com — and make sure you download the free track!
