60 Seconds With... Three Quarter Beast
Define your genre in five words or less:
Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Like we’ve just stepped out of the '90s, but we just love playing the style of music that we grew up listening to. Our style has a new spin on it. Grunge isn’t dead, it’s been in a coma and we’ve woken it up, whether it wants to or not.
What inspires or has influenced your music the most?
Old horror movies with bad special effects, myths, legends, folk tales, the occult and all things weirdly cool.
Tell us about the last song you wrote.
It’s about a dark, dark man with a dark, dark heart and in the dark, dark heart there was a ghost…boo!
When are you releasing your EP?
We have just smashed out an EP in an amazing studio way out in the bush with only the animals to hear us play. We’re launching it at The Brunswick Hotel on Saturday August 25. It’ll be a crazy night. Be there: everyone needs a copy of this EP.
So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you... what do they say?
“Woah man, I don’t believe in werewolves but I just saw this guy up on stage, with no shirt on, covered in blood and howling like a maniac. It’s just too awesome!”
If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be, and why?
A picnic, because it looks a bit fugly on the outside but it’s a jumble of ingredients that you don’t think would mix, but it just works. Sounds crunchy when you take a bite and it seriously tastes good.
When are you doing your thing next?
At Pony this Saturday May 26. It’s going to be a huge gig with a massive lineup. Three Quarter Beast, Husk, A Better Place and Blanks. This one is not to be missed. It’s $5 entry: you can’t beat that shit.
Anything else to add?
Three Quarter Beast are creating the soundtrack to the end of an age. Come with us and join the cult.
