Go Get Mum

What’s the band name and what do you do in the band? We’re called Go Get Mum and I share the rhythm guitar, singing and songwriting duties.
 
What do you reckon people will say you sound like? Maybe a bit like Dick Diver, Darren Hanlon with some Scott & Charlene’s Wedding thrown in.
 
What do you love about making music? Writing a song, work-shopping it as a band and then performing it tofind people actually like it is bloody lovely.
 
What do you hate about the music industry? Notknowing the lay of the land and finding things out the hard way can be taxing, but that’s just usbeing new kids on the block.
 
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be? No need to travel back in time, I’d love people like Steph Hughes, Darren Hanlon, Craig Dermodyand Neil Finn to wrap their ears around our stuff and hopefully not hate it.
 
If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would you choose? For a band of relative pacifists our kill list is pretty long. I friggin’ hate The Police. And LennyKravitz. Our drummer Woody has an aversion to The Strokes we’re helping him deal with.
 
What can a punter expect from your live show? A bunch of earnest dags playing some tunes and having a good time. I hope there’ssomething endearing about that. If not we’re screwed.

Go Get Mum will perform at The Workers Club on Saturday May 13 with Sofola and Boyparts.
