MySpace Interview – The Foxes

So, who are you anyway?

We’re The Foxes – the hardest working band on the planet. We’re constantly touring, and have set up our own label to release our music, our debut single “Trauma Town” (with “Hey Baby!” reaching no.9 in the UK indie charts. We play functions and weddings as a covers band when not doing playing Foxes gigs, which helps pay for the band and staying alive.

Describe your sound for us.

It’s the darker side of milky azure, with strong melodies and solid guitar riffs.

So you rate yourself then?

We’re confident in our abilities, but are always trying to outdo ourselves, both musically and in performance. There’s no standing still.

Who are your influences?

Each other first of all, but a huge number of bands after that.

Tell us one of your musical secrets.

Musical geniuses have all practised more than most people.

What’s in the future?

We’re doing a huge UK tour in February/March to support the release of our next single, “Bill Hicks” – the track (with “Come and Get You” will be up on our site 1st January, along with the music video. The Bill Hicks family have heard the track and are really supportive, saying they think Bill would have loved it.

What’s your claim to fame?

We’ve toured with Yeti (ex-Libertine John Hassall’s band), and played with KT Tunstall at The Wickerman Festival (she was LOVELY). We’ve also played with The Animals, The Troggs, The Magic Numbers, Chas and Dave, Glasvegas, The Zombies.

Musically, where do you see yourself in 10 years time?

Somewhere very different from where we are now. We don’t want to ever stand still or stagnate musically, and I have a huge amount of respect for bands like Radiohead who have pushed boundaries and experimented while still making brilliant music.

Myspace or Facebook?

Both – though Myspace is much more for music.
