Q and A with O.W.L.S

5th December 2012 by Emma Scott

 

O.W.L.S

Interview with Toby Macfarlaine.

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

A. After Stone Gods was squished by the return of The Darkness, I wrote a bunch of demos and played them to Richie and Stuffy who said they liked them. Then I asked Ollie if he wanted to be in a band with me. He said yes. Then our mate Padge from Bullet For My Valentine asked if we wanted to record in his new studio. We said yes. Then we did a handful of shows. Now we’re doing more. So far it’s been ace.

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

A. Ollie has a tendency to get his bum out in public. Richie keeps his sat-nav in a sock. Stuffy is a cat breeder. I talk to myself. All the time.

Q. What are your plans for the future?

A. More gigs. Touring where possible. Record a full album. Become hugely important.

Q. Any upcoming releases?

A. Dec 9th the single is unleashed.

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

A. The next one. Always looking forward.

Q. How about the worst?

A. I can’t remember it.

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