This interview eved the day in which I had seen The Cads perform. The band had seriously good spirit when they were showing it. At times, in a perfect world without nerves, I wish the band had been a bit less aware of the fact this gig was big, because sometimes the awareness almost came through and dampened the spark. But the spark was really fucking good. James the drummer was seriously tight, creating the most distinguished backdrop on which the other four could jump about upon. What kept on exciting me was the persistent display of dangerous promise this band posess.
Here’s James Brown’s choice of music as a preference and audibly as an influence, with it bringing Two Door Cinema Club’s first appearance on Seeds. Personally, this milestone doesn’t horrify me.
Two Door Cinema Club – Undercover Martyn
