Special Thanks to Human Heat and Matthew Stroud from ciu-production.co.uk (Sound)
Better late then never. I shot this a while back, with the help of Mr James Clarke (camera op and general tall person duties) and also Matthew Stroud managed to record a live out from the desk, which is interesting for me to edit with as opposed to a general collection of live mics in a guerilla style . So here we have Human Heat, one of Cardiff's latest projects containing part Deadlines part Masts it's definitely a fair way apart in sound to both. I loved it, it really reminded me of a nostalgic kinda early 00's sound. I asked the guys a few questions here we go (There's another 2 videos and interviews to come, but I'm crazy busy and battling to keep on top, so a few weeks to wait for them).
Fuzz (Chris Chucas) -How did HH come about, your all busy in other bands?
Tom Watkins- I wrote a few songs that didn't really fit with masts and demoed them at home. Charlie heard them and we decided to start something up and then got Sean on board.
Fuzz -Do you treat it differently to other projects , do you write (if so do you do it with the same process)?
Tom W- I wrote a few songs that didn't really fit with masts and demoed them at home. Charlie heard them and we decided to start something up and then got Sean on board.
Fuzz - If you had to say what sound you have what would it be, was it intended or accidental?
Fuzz - The sound was going towards an indie punk vibe so I demoed some more and then we worked on them together
Fuzz - Playing in multiple bands seems like a pretty normal thing for punk bands these days, do you think so and why that might be?
Tom W - I think in Cardiff at the moment there's a solid community of musicians and bands who just want to play and share music, there seems to be a good buzz at the moment.
Fuzz - What's up next, ep recording etc?
Tom W- We've just finished recording so we'll put up a demo soon and then an ep at some point in the future.
