Weekend Offender exclusive interview with TOWN

If you had to have a fight with someone, with one hand tied behind your back, using only a vegetable as a weapon with the other hand, what would be your vegetable of choice?
A carrot – Most likely vegetable to be used for stabbing – although we dont condone stabbing people. Or wasting food.

We see that you have done a cover of the Black Eyed Peas, describe for us your musical style in 5 words that start with the letter P

Nice one for bringing that up……….. Proper proper proper proper pucka!

Who gets laid the least out of the band?
Tough call, to be honest although Hamish is slacking. So ladies… get in line.

If you HAD to sleep with another band member
s mum, whose Mum would it be?
We’ll take anything. Next question.

What have you seen that you wish you could unsee??
Flat out – “one man one cup”. Having to go into detail will only bring back the horror. I’m sure you can view it on fuckedupmiddleagedblokes.com <http://fuckedupmiddleagedblokes.com/>

We noticed that lots of successful/famous people from Wales all have the surname Jones- Tom Jones, Steve Jones, Kelly Jones, Catherine Zeta Jones..would you all consider changing your last names too Jones if it meant guaranteed success for Town?
Yeah, why not?… We could get mistaken for the Jonas brother’s and have more chance of getting feisty with Miley Cyrus…

Who
s the biggest ‘Weekend Offender’ out of you lot? Give us an example?
Come out with us this weekend and find out for yourself.

We have seen that pic of Luke with his top off, whats that mental tattoo all about then?
Well, 15 year old kids get bored in maths lessons… Just don’t tattoo your boredom onto your body.


Whats the worse idea you have ever had?
Putting viagra in the victoria sponge at the old folks home.

What was the last lie you told?
Well, what do you think?

Have you ever been attacked by an animal?
You want us to say a sheep don’t you??… But on a serious note, does a valleys bird count?

How did you all meet?
Through being mates, playing football and in local bands. But had the same views on music and what we wanted to do with it.

Whos the biggest tart out of the band?
It’s gonna be Alex. Front man innit.

Whats next for the town then?
Our debut single “Smug Alert” is availble to download on itunes from March 1st. Priority is to tour the UK as much as possible this year, so keep and eye out for gig dates in your area.
We’re back in the studio next month recording more big tunes, so keep an ear out for them and all other news at www.townmusic.co.uk <http://www.townmusic.co.uk/>

Weekend Offender and Cool House present DJ Sneak@The Coal Exchange ,Cardiff.

Cool House 9th Birthday Party with DJ Sneak in association with Weekend Offender Clothing

Cool House are pleased to announce our 9th Birthday Celebrations and our first of series of parties back at Cardiff’s most iconic music venue, The Coal Exchange.

The venue closed its doors to dance music fans in June 2007 with our own farewell party featuring Loco Dice and Slam in line with a major re-development of the building. That proposed scheme has now been placed on hold and we are very proud to welcome one of house music’s true pioneers for a well-overdue return: Chicago house legend DJ Sneak.

Self-proclaimed house gangster Sneak has helped shape the course of dance music since the early 90s; his early music influencing the likes of Daft Punk, Bassment Jaxx and Armand Van Helden. His signature sounds – funky filtered disco-influenced house and tough, jacking beats -have revolutionised and redefined house music for 15 years.

Having begun his Djing career in 1983, Sneak continues to be at the top of his game: his back to back sets with Ricardo Villalobos recently became the talk of the electronic music circuit and a barrage of top quality releases over the last two years have culminated with the release of his recent album ‘House of House’ on his own Magnetic Recordings label.

It means so much to Cool House to welcome Sneak and to be back in the Coal Exchange – the time, venue and guest are perfect for a truly memorable Birthday party.

We hope you can join us. X

Plan B

Intense, unremitting and coarse, Plan B stalks a post-hip-hop hinterland of lost boys and girls terrorising one another across a blank British cityscape of franchise-packed highways, needle-strewn byways and panic-riven homes. Drugs, casual sex and even more casual violence form the staple themes of debut LP Who Needs Actions When You Got Words, describing a generation roadblocked between the desire for flight or escape and the absence of the necessary tools or support. It’s this brand of frustration that first fired East London native Ben Drew into launching a music career. He quit college to pen R&B bangers but ended up unemployed, small-time drug dealing and learning his way around the acoustic guitar. Some stark songwriting emerged (“Kidz”, “Sick 2 Def”), followed by stints at rock clubs (when he started rapping “everybody’s jaw would drop to the floor”) and then a deal with UK label 679, also home to The Streets. While it’s easy to draw parallels between Plan B’s take-no-prisoners approach and Eminem’s, it may be wiser to compare his work with Everlast: a sincere, streetwise soul who marries a love of hip-hop with a wider appreciation of lyrical rock.

Plan B also plays the role of Noel in the recently released Harry Brown, starring alongside Michael Caine. The film also features his collaboration, “End Credits” with drum and bass producers Chase & Status. See it here
