Listen To This… Thunderian Summer

Dave, Alex, Tim, Matt and Pablo, these five guys are from all over the East Midlands and form the newest band to get into the music scene. These guys produce much of their own material as well as the odd cover song but non-the-less are still worth checking out. If you like listening to melodic rock riffs and upbeat vocal check these guys next time they’re in town. Listen to Just A Soldier, The Man I Want To Be and Lion Bear Tiger Mama (live in Nottingham, you won’t be disappointed.

Who are you guys?
Singer – Dave Thomas (DT)
Guitar – Alex Lee (Big A)
Guitar – Tim Stone (The Juke)
Bass – Matt Morley (Pops)
Drums – Pablo Fernández de Dios (Pabs)

How did you get together?
I was in jamming with a couple of mates who had a covers band that was sort of on hiatus, that didn’t really lead to anything but in the mean time I’d recruited DT and Pops to join us. So a couple of adverts and we got Juke and Pabs in.

…. And your musical influences?

Loads, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Gaslight Anthem, Kings Of Leon, Foo Fighters… the list goes on. All five of us like different stuff and we sort of meet in the middle.

How would you describe the band’s style?
Loads of Reverb!

What’s the story behind the band name?
It’s what happens when five guys who should be doing more important things have a Whatsapp chat and start geeking out about Thundercats.

On a scale of 1-10, how rock are you?
Dunno, 7 maybe… depends what 10 is really.

Best gig so far?
Probably the Sausage and Cider Festival, weather was great and in the daylight we could see the crowd singing along to our stuff, which was cool.

Your dream gig?
Sunday Night, Glastonbury.

How’s life in the band?
Normally it’s a lot of fun.

Have you played abroad yet?
Not yet, got some plans for 2019, but still some work to do here.

Have you had much airplay at all?
Some internet stuff, there’s a few stations who are really supportive of unsigned bands who’ve played us.

And lastly where can fans listen to your music?
Soundcloud for now…. There’s been much debate in the band about the merits of putting the songs up for sale at this stage.
