Q and A with Guns for Girls

5th December 2012 by Emma Scott


Guns For Girls

Q. So tell me a brief history of the band.

A. July 1984, Mooney and Gavin met. 25 years or so later they found Stu – the right drummer to bring GFG to life. After a while writing rocking tunes and gigging loads and changing bassists, Carl was recruited in 2011. We have been trying to get rid of him ever since.

Q. Do any of the band members have any weird habits?

A. Mooney likes to release the most deadly of stenches in almost every practice. Stu has a habit of being a grumpy old man, Gavin is catching Mooney up in the stench department and Carl is just weird.

Q. What are your plans for the future?

A. To have a Christmas No. 1 single.

Q. Any upcoming releases?

A. We hope to be releasing our new single and video in the new year.

Q. What is the best gig you’ve ever played?

A. The Go Club in Birmingham – for some reason it was perfect! You could see daylight through the ceiling! The Slade Rooms Nov 2011 for Emma Scott – great venue. Great crowd! Looking forward to blowing the roof off there again!

Q. How about the worst?

A. Oswestry summer 2012 – during the second song of our 45 min set we were told it was our last song! We eventually managed 5 songs before we were ‘switched off’.

Q. If you could play with any one in the world, alive or dead for one night only, who would it be?

A. We have many influences, but a mixture of Steve Harris, Josh Homme, Freddie Mercury, Frank Black and Bez from the Happy Mondays.
