As you know we are running a competition to be in for a chance to win a pair of tickets to DOT TO DOT FESTIVAL! See how you can win yours here...
In line with this mega competition we are going to be talking to some of the bands who are playing over the 3 days of fun spread across Bristol, Nottingham and Manchester. We want to find out who they are excited about watching at Dot To Dot, where we can see them after the Festival and obvs what they will be wearing!
So to kick off all the excitement we spoke to the lads from the BEST FRIENDS. You may or may not of heard of this band but they are working to hard to make sure their catchy surf/ pop/ rock/ garage style tunes never leave your head. And with track titles like 'If You Think Too Much Your Brain Will Fall Out', 'Surf Bitches' and 'Throwing Up' you can see straight away they aren't taking it too seriously but enjoying every minute and with this attitude they are becoming quite appealing to all music lovers.
HIYA JACK, LEWIS, EDAND TOM aka BEST FRIENDS!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN GOING NOW?
Jack - "About two years . I think our first gig was around this time last year."
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON AT THE MINUTE?
Jack - "We're recording a new E.P hopefully to release before we start playing the festivals this summer."
WHAT'S THE BEST GIG YOU'VE EVER DONE?
Jack - "Loads but probably in the house we lived in last year. We used to put on house shows. They were always the most messy but the most fun and the living room made a perfect venue. We did a WWF themed fancy dress show once which was siiiiiiiick!"
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT PLAYING DOT TO DOT?
Ed - "It should be rad!"
WHAT OTHER BANDS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCHING THERE?
Ed - "Bo Ningen are one of the most insane bands I've ever seen so I'll try and see them at some point that weekend. I'm also looking forward to watching a load of bands I've never seen/heard before, should be a good weekend!"
Lewis - "I'm gonna catch Wolf Alice, we played their single launch recently and they were really good, they're gonna be big."
WHAT'S PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE & WHERE CAN WE SEE YOU AGAIN AFTER THE FESTIVAL?
Lewis - "I'll be looking for a job, are you hiring?"
WHAT IS YOUR FESTIVAL MUST HAVE?
Ed - "A pair of boots"
Lewis - "Hats. Getting sunstroke can make you look like a pussy. Avoid meshbacks too because the sun can still get in and fry your brain."
WHAT IS THE BEST THING YOU'VE EVER FOUND FROM A VINTAGE STORE?
Ed - "Festival boots!"
Lewis - "I bought a vest with Snoop on the other day. That's pretty good."
