Café Disco: Tea in the park
If you like _ and _ then you will like Café Disco. Fill in the blanks.
If you like strong anthemic hooks and the sound of a wailing Scotsman then you will like Café Disco.
How would you describe your sound in three words?
Honest, Melodic, Altpop (Altpop is a word,I think…)
You’re pretty much newcomers to the scene. Have you got a strategy planned in order to make an impact?
Well we’ve been gigging quite regularly, with many more lined up, which is honing our live show well. We will be having a gig in October to show all our friends the recordings we have been making at Jamhut Studios in Irvine. Apart from that, to make sure whatever we do we are enjoying it, and hopefully share that joy with others.
Are you named after an episode of the Office – or is it complete coincidence?
Not many people know this, but we have actually been on the scene for a number of decades now, and Greg Daniels (executive producer of The Office) rang us up and asked if he could name an episode arc after us, because he is a huge fan. Of course we said yes. Lovely lad Greg, we know his mum.
Who is the most important member of the band?
That depends completely on which member of the band is asked. Café Disco isn’t well known for modesty…
If you perform a duet with any one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Scotty Walker! He’s a fucking nutjob! No other human being could get such a sweet noise from the carcass of a dead cow.
And finally, what’s your favourite square on Monopoly and why?
Free Parking without a doubt. We live in a world rife with corruption and war, and for many Free Parking is top of the list of why they get up in the morning. FYI, Café Disco is No. 32 on that list.
