60 Seconds With…The Groves

60 Seconds With…The Groves


So then, what’s your name and what do you do in the band?

My name is Leigh and I do the electrical bass guitar and the street press Q&As.


What do you reckon people will say you sound like?

A more experimental and less credible incarnation of Canned Heat. But we’re about as white as Canned Heat.


What do you love about making music?

Being able to draw tenuous analogies between ourselves Canned Heat.


What do you hate about the music industry?

Never being anywhere near as successful nor as popular as Canned Heat.


If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

Probably Canned Heat.


If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?

Not sure, but defo not Canned Heat.


What can a punter expect from your live show?

Four nearly broken men trying to use instruments to fight their way through their respective quarter life crises, with varying degrees of success… and fuzz.


What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

We have far too many copies of our two EPs. One is self-titled and the other is called Wine Dark Sea. They’re taking up a lot of space, so please buy several.


Anything else to add?

Seriously, we need to move those EPs.
