II KIDS IN THE ATTIC II
KONG - BEZZA - DRUFF - https://soundcloud.com/kidsintheattic -
When i first heard Kids in the Attic, i was instantly intrigued by there fuzzy - wuzzy layered surfy sound, that was playing out of some kind of old broken speakers. you could just tell straight away that these guys loved what they were doing, and are going to be great.
whats the name of your band? and how did it come about?
The name kids in the attic came about after a young angus melross assumed that our sound cave was located in the attic of my house. And surely enough after a brief stint as the beachcombers we decided that it maybe wasn’t such a bad name. Much better than the faggy beachcombers.
what kind of music are you into? do you think this has influenced your current genre?
Well bez (darcy) and druff (tom) are pretty deep in the grunge scene coming from a strong background of Nirvana, The Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, The Vaccines etc. Whereas I grew up as a little headbanger rolling around on skateboards sporting Iggy pop t shirts and chubby cheeks worshipping Strummer and the Ramones. We are all really into all that sixties shit as well. I spose we try and meet eachother halfway and play stuff that we are all happy with.
