Fronted by Gruff Rhys collaborator Lis Jen (Candylion/ Neon Neon), Welsh band 9Bach release album Tincian on Monday (12 May). Jen explains all…
WHO would play you in the film of your life?
The cast of Mad Man, or the Scooby Doo Gang, or a mixture of both, a good representation of the contradictions, and musical mash up that come with being in a six piece band.
WHAT are you currently working on?
A big huge seafood Paella for ten whilst trying to learn lines (I’m also an actress), juggling the bottle opener with the phone, whilst trying to track down any hotel that can accommodate 9Bach in a six bed family room (we’re on tour in May/June). Shit, the cat’s got the langoustine!
WHY do you do that thing you do?
It’s pretty hard not to when you’re involuntarily spewing songs, or whistling bass lines in to your iPhone whilst walking the dog. Although sometimes the creative process can be trying, and you vow you’ll never put your self through it again… it all becomes clear WHY you do it in the bit where you listen to the final mixes really loud in the car, driving through the village, windows down and looking like a twat, head bobbing to your own songs.
WHERE do you see yourself in ten years?
In a hotel family room eating grub and drinking vodka martini’s still debating about band leaders and hook lines… belly laughing and crying and messing around of course!
WHEN will there be a harvest for the world?
When we get rid of the idiots that run the show, who keep the harvest to themselves, and keep selling us other stuff we don’t need.
