Al Moses

Musicians — South Wales

Name, where are you from?
We’re Al Moses, a band of 21-23 year-olds from South Wales. Jack Vill, Dafi Thomas, Jarvis Morgan and Ray Bryant.

Describe your style in three words?
Taffy Smoker’s Ramble.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
It’s a hard one, but I’d probably go with The Libertines at the Motorpoint Cardiff a few years back. It was the first gig Jack and I went to together and it was just after they’d reformed. All in all just an insane, chaotic gig.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Would love to be on the same bill as Super Furries. Gruff Rhys is a bit odd and it would be fun to pick his brains backstage. Would also love to play with Primal Scream. We all love Bobby Gillespie, he’s cool personified.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
I think growing up through this day and age, you’re dragged through most subcultures and styles and you discover your own style along the way. In terms of music; we’ve got bits of punk, bits of mod and a lot more crammed in. It’s all a bit all over the place nowadays.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Richey Edwards from the Manics. It would be surreal to get an insight into some of those dark, angsty lyrics.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
It was pretty great playing a sold out upstairs of Clwb Ifor Bach, which felt like a big deal growing up in and around Cardiff. Anytime we get to play at home it’s a joy, surrounded by great people in the streets we know so well.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Nick Drake. He’s obviously held to greater acclaim now than he was when he was alive, but his writing influence on our band is undeniable. If you strip back some of our tunes you can hear how the melodies move similarly.

The first track you played on repeat?
The first song ever played on repeat was probably something from Oasis, or maybe 'Design For Life' by the Manics...

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Wrong ‘Em Boyo' by The Clash.

One record you would keep forever?
I think we all swear by 'Dogrel' by Fontaines D.C. as an album we love. It’s faultless.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
"I know I believe in nothing, but it is my nothing"

From 'Faster’ by the Manics.

The song that would get you straight on the dance floor?
'Come Together’ by Primal Scream.

A song you wished you had written?
I wish I had written 'I’m Alive' by Johnny Thunder. Very cool, very trendy, very rich.

Best song to turn up loud?
'Moonage Daydream' by David Bowie.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
It’s a hard one, I mean people would be surprised if we liked Paul McCartney’s new songs... but we don’t. I’ll have to go with 'Only You' by The Platters, very strange.

Best song to end an all-nighter on?
'La Belle Et La Bete' by Babyshambles or any Mac DeMarco songs if you're banking on falling asleep.

Any new bands you are listening to right now?
Football F.C.
Italia 90
Clwb Fuzz
Bandicoot
