Bleach Boy

Musicians — Manchester

Name, where are you from?
Bleach Boy, Manchester. Milo (Vocals + Guitar), Tommi (Guitar), Sam (Bass) and Cian (Drums).

Describe your style in three words?
Whatever is clean.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Milo: I saw Sleaford Mods when they sold out at Rock City in Nottingham. That’s where I met what’s his face with the chops. Guy Martin. Although it could’ve just been a guy that looked a lot like Guy Martin. Either way, I shook his hand. Looking back it probably wasn’t Guy Martin.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Milo: Nirvana – They were a voice and attitude that hasn’t been touched since. I’d love to see them trash a kit in real life, too. 
Cian: Deftones – Because of the fire beats.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Punk, Grunge, Goth, Post-Punk, Emo, Hippie.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Milo: Iggy Pop, he’s one of the only godfathers of rock left. He’s the coolest grandad ever.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Soupy. (Soup Kitchen, Manchester). It’s not too big, not too small. The sound guys are ace. There’s no longer a pisser in the green room but they’ve redone everything and it looks sick. We played there with Surfbort and they were filming their music video for 'Billy' which we ended up in. We spoke about jackets and gave them a Dandelion and Burdock. The drummer liked it.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Jordaan Mason. A really intelligent lyricist touching on a lot of issues.

The first track you played on repeat?
'Where Eagles Dare' by Misfits.

A song that defines the teenage you?
Milo: 'Let Down' by Radiohead.
Sam: 'Sweet Leaf' by Black Sabbath. My Dad used to play it on the way to Rugby. I wasn’t very good.
Tommi: 'Half A Person' by The Smiths.

One record you’d keep forever?
Sam: 'Beetles' by Warpaint. 'Exquisite Corpse' is peng.

A song that would get you straight on the dance floor?
Milo: 'Oblivion' by Grimes.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
Tommi: “As railhead towns feel the steel mills rust
Water froze / In the generation
Clear as winter ice / This is your paradise
There ain’t no need for ya.”

From 'Straight to Hell' by The Clash. Joe Strummer got me onto the guitar. The Clash has always been more than just a band.

A song you wished you had written?
Sam: 'El Manana' by Gorillaz because it’s peng.
Milo: You can’t just say peng for everything Sam.

Best song to turn up loud?
'Rock Music' by Pixies. 

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
'Da Mystery of Chessboxin' by Wu-Tang Clan.

Best song to end an all-nighter on?
Sam: 'Just Like Heaven' by The Cure.

Any new bands you are listening to right now?
'Daddy, Pt.2' by Witch Fever.
'Tingle Tangle Bob' by Lucy Lagoon.
'Les Be In Love' by Surfbort.
