Name, where are you from?
Adam (A), Dom (D), Sam, Rory and Lucas. We're from South Woodford in East London.

Describe your style in three words?
(A) Eclectic, Enigmatic and Endearing.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
(A + D) We went to see King Crimson at the Hackney Empire and have not seen anything like it. They had three drummer's across the front and we were in the front row. Walked back to station feeling dazed and insecure.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
(A) I'd go with Talking Heads because they're probably the band I'd most want to watch.
(D) I'd have to say The Smiths, for the same reason.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
(A) I'd say the post-punk/new wave movements heavily influenced the record and we're currently enjoying a lot of the stuff coming out of the South London scene. There's a lot of good stuff scattered around though.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
(A) I'd love to spend a good hour with Will Ferrell, I feel like he'd make me feel like everything was alright.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
(D) The Victoria as it's got a bookcase for the entrance to the venue, really nice lager and decent sound (although we nearly got deafened at a soundcheck once...)

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
(A) Sam Dust of LA Priest and Late Of The Pier, the man's seminal.

East London quintet 485C released their self-titled debut album in April 2018.
