So Here We Are!

“Andy and Muzz” are a musical duo based in London.
They met in 2005.
Inspired by watching sunrises over Regents Park, they started making music around 2006.
After a whole year they managed to make a grand total of 3 songs (Lights when I close my eyes, Wooden Blocks and Hands to the Ground), gaining much critical praise. “Like eating chocolate orange through your ears” was just one of the things people were saying about them.
Unable to cope with the pressures of making a song once every blue moon and constantly not touring, in late 2007, Andy fled to Argentina to turn his hand to the Steel-Making trade. Muzz remained in London, to wander aimlessly along the banks of the River Thames, acquainting himself with the murky water and the murky characters that populated London at the time.
After a year, exhausted from hammering steel 12 hours a day for 1 solitary peso a week, Andy returned to London and “Andy and Muzz” reformed. Now more prolific then ever (2 songs every blue moon) Andy and Muzz are currently working on their debut LP.

And now for something completely different, 10 very superficial questions to Andy & Muzz :

1] Where do you live actually?
The Great Barrier Reef

2] What is the last thing you ate?
A sea anemone cocktail followed by oyster liqueurs

3] Your drug/addiction?
Sea weed

4] One quote?
“The X factor is sooo lush”

5] One movie?
Police Academy 17

6] One song?
The theme tune to “The Poddington Peas”

7] Favourite venue/club?

8] Best gig ever?
Chico at the AberG fest

9] Favourite place on earth?
Playa de las Americas

10] Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?
On a dinghy in the mediterranean
