Phil Bridges


Name, where are you from?
Phil Bridges, Liverpool.

Describe your style in three words?
Not that bad.

Which new British bands are you listening to at the moment?
We’ve recently interviewed The Big Moon and The Orielles on The Mind Map, who are good. I also really like The Rhythm Method and a Liverpool band called FUSS.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Seeing The Coral in the Cavern as unsigned 16-year-olds was pretty exciting. But the best gig I’ve ever been to is probably Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci at the Liverpool Philharmonic in 2004, or maybe the Super Furry Animals in Bangor a few years ago.

A British icon that inspires you?
In terms of musical icons, I’d say maybe Paul McCartney as he’s written loads of my favourite songs.
