We interviewed Silent Party after a gig on the 19th of May 2016. We got some unexpected insights…
How did the band come together?
Michael: Chris and I went to school together, and Luke and I met in drama school …we were all wearing leotards…. I was a flamingo – we had to do animal transformations – and you were – what were you?
Luke: A wolf. Then a chicken…
Michael: …we got this letter saying we had to buy leotards. You thought it was the V-neck sort –
Luke: – well how would I know?
Michael: well everyone else turned up in, like, wrestler leotards – I – I went all the way, full length – I looked like I was in Cats!
Luke: Elegant! Embarrassing!
Michael: So that’s why I was a flamingo, I suppose…
About Mint Street Music Festival…
Michael: We’re really looking forward to it. And because it’s free as well, just get as many friends as you can down, sunny weather, Borough – perfect! Will you have beer stalls?
Michael: It’ll be brilliant. Really looking forward to it.
What are you up to at the moment?
Michael: We’re working on an EP. A sort of pop record. Due out probably in September.
