Are you a still fan?
BR: They are indelibly linked to so memories that I’m definitely fond of them. There are specific songs by each that make my trousers fly away, I look at you, ‘It’s Late’ and Innuendo..
BR: #Nirvana were purely responsible for me thinking, ‘I like music, I do’
BR: Absolutely! From the ages of fourteen to sixteen, I listened to pretty much nothing but Nirvana and that’s when I picked up the guitar, a Hohner Rockwood with feet buzz on the 4th fret, G-string
BR: Serve the Servants, it’s always been of my favourite songs and has all the golden ingredients or Verse Chorus Verse, just so I could hear the solo, basically
BR: I started singing purely because out of the three of us in the band, I was least bad. I had awful confidence issues in the early years and it was only really around 2015 I completely relaxed into it.
BR: @Recluseuk - still going strong. Technically I was in a school band for one gig that was called, ‘Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy, Click, Click, Sunday’
BR: At the start we were completely green, for a couple of years we just played covers and eventually ‘went on hiatus’ I moved away to the Isles of Scilly where I learned...
BR: It was! We clicked straight away and immediately formed a band, it was cool for me because Recluse were moving in a harder, darker and more progressive direction and...
BR: I think Come on Over serves us well, it was a cool, driving rock song that stayed in the set for a long time and was quite ‘riffy’. It was a cool way to kick of our first album and was the first song learnt.
BR: Not at all, it’s some easy to separate the songs and both bands have their own way of putting tracks and pieces together so there is never a challenge is separating them.
BR: When our original drummer, Polts, was in the band it was a song called Boy, as it captured the indie vibe and accentuated Polts’ Laos-back style with ghost rolls and hi-hat trills etc. with a pretty solid beat and groove
BR: I’m carrying on as I used to, playing guitar and writing parts of songs. The one thing that has changed is that I’m doing regular acoustic video uploads to social media of originals and covers,
BR: Yes, you can!
BR: Nice, easy one to sing....
Exciting times. Finally, what song shall we end with, any song by anyone?
