Q&A: No Zebra
Describe your sound in five words or less:
Alternative mystical zebra-less rock.
What do you love about making music?
The end result when we get to play it live for people to hear.
How long have you been gigging and writing?
Andrew and myself have been writing music for about four or five years. We used to be a two-piece band called Jam Sesh because, well, that’s all we’d do is jam, we didn’t have any gigs or anything. It wasn’t until 2010 that we added a bass guitarist and drummer (my brother Michael). Then after a few months the original bassist dropped out and we got Rodger. Our first gig was Michael’s birthday in January 2011, although half of our family walked out midway through…
Describe the best gig you have ever played.
Laundry Bar a few months ago. The place was packed out, people were having a great time, dancing, jumping up on stage with us and it was really good fun.
Describe the worst gig you have ever played.
Funnily enough Laundry Bar just the other week. It was wet, cold, empty and lifeless. Except for the one old guy at the back wearing sunglasses, talking to himself. He seemed to be having a good time.
Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
We get mixed opinions of what we sound like. I would say we sound like a lot of different bands, but mostly we sound like No Zebra.
What's your favourite song, and why?
I would have to say Else. I love everything about that song. The bass intro, the pre-chorus crescendo and the lyrics. We play it at pretty much every gig and we never get tired of playing it.
