POZI

Musicians — London

Name, where are you from?
Pozi (Rosa, Toby & Tom), one-third South East London and two-thirds West London.

Describe your style in three words?
All over floor.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
R: Patti Smith at Shepherds Bush Empire in 2007. Patti Smith put the whole audience into some kind of trance I can only imagine what being religious might feel like.
Tb: OOIOO at Kamio – I’d never heard of them so it was a total surprise and they encapsulated everything I love about music. A bit like Television on crack.
Tm: The Stone Roses reunion gig. An amazing gig and day in Manchester and I’ve loved them since I was young.

If you could be on the line up with any two artists in history?
The Fall – for the abuse.
R: The Shangri-Las. Really curious to see how they got their punk reputation on the road. They have a lot of mystique.
Tb: Public Image Ltd.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Punk, Japanese noise rock, free jazz, jungle, d&b, opera, krautrock, folk. All of these and more open up discussion about the length of songs, does a song have to have a specific message or emotion, the differences between recorded and live.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
David Bowie. Was kind of quietly convinced our paths would cross but then they didn’t. An hour with him might not really cut the mustard though.

Of all the venues you’ve been to or played, which is your favourite?
The Lexington, it feels good to be right in the heart of London in Kings Cross, the stage set up is small but satisfying, the lighting is atmospheric, and we like how a lot of bands we really respect play there but it’s also not trying to be too polished. Secretly(?) like to stay on after live music there for the White Heat indie club night on Fridays.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Delia Derbyshire. She made a lot of the early electronic music for BBC in the '50s - an inspiring innovator.


POZI performed on day one at Fred Perry Subculture's All Our Tomorrows festival in 2019, playing alongside Squid, Lazarus Kane and with DJ sets from Glows & Savage Gary (Speedy Wunderground). Read more about it here.

The first track you played on repeat?
R: 'Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands' by Bob Dylan.
Tm: 'Parklife' by Blur.
Tb: 'Losing My Religion' by R.E.M.

A song that defines the teenage you?
R: 'Cannonball' by The Breeders.
Tb: 'Negative Creep' by Nirvana.
Tm: 'Come Home' by Placebo.

One record you would keep forever?
R: '154' by Wire.
Tb: 'Step Off' (vinyl) by ESG.
Tm: 'Snap, Crackle and Bop' by John Cooper Clarke.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
"Pale blinds drawn all day, nothing to do, nothing to say."
From 'Sound and Vision' by David Bowie, or for a different outlook on life...

"I’m ready to shape the scheme of things."
From 'Word On A Wing' by David Bowie.

The song that would get you straight on the dance floor?
R: 'It’s My House' by Diana Ross.
Tb: 'Boogie On Reggae Woman' by Stevie Wonder.
Tm: 'Someday' by The Strokes.

A song you wished you had written?
R: 'Down To Zero' by Joan Armatrading.
Tm: 'Geoffrey Ingram' by Television Personalities.
Tb: 'Maria' by Blondie.

Best song to turn up loud?
R: 'Shinzo No Tobira' by Mariah.
Tm: 'Rouche Rumble' by The Fall.
Tb: 'Action Time Vision' by ATV.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
R: 'Stand by Your Man' by Tammy Wynette – despite the lyrics being so inherently sexist it's just such a tune.
Tb: 'I Have A Dream' by ABBA.

Best song to end an all-nighter on?
R: 'Waterloo Sunset' by The Kinks.
Tm: 'Sunday Morning' by The Velvet Underground.
Tb: 'Blue Moon - Take 9/M' by Elvis Presley.
