The Horrors (Rhys) Interview at Mousetrap NUTS

[ studio dog ] is that a gold yorkshire terrier nearby rhys?

Who was your biggest influence musically and your favourite artist(s)?

  • Rhys: I would have to say its an over all sound and feeling you get from listening to the best far out psych and beat stuff that I dig. It has such a specific feeling. My favourite psychedelic group will always be July.

How and when did you get into music and what were you listening to then?

  • Rhys: I guess I was listening to bands like Blur and Pulp when I was at school. A gang in the year above started wearing parkas and I can remember going home and asking my Mum what a Mod was. It was just before Quadrophenia was re-released – so perfect timing for an introduction in to a way of life that I still live by most rules today! Bands like the Small Faces and the Who were my early favourites and of course the Motown groups. I was lucky enough to get my nose into an old Southend ‘Face’ from the 80s Northern Soul collection around that time which was a massive inspiration.
