Antennas To Heaven

David from Antennas To Heaven talks pasties, cod & biscuits...

1. Website / Myspace:
www.antennastoheaven.co.uk / www.myspace.com/antennas
2. Location: Newcastle, UK.
3. Working method: We are not your typical 'band' in that Phil writes the lyrics and I write the music. Basically once I have a few tracks ready I use Phil's lyrics to see what can be fitted into the music. We then argue about which ones work and which don't and somehow at the end of it we end up with a finished product.
4. Describe your music: Our music is a combination of post rock and shoegaze with surreal lyrical stories involving drunk dogs, urban decay and cornish pasties.
5. What's your favourite fish: Cod.
6. Advice to others: To keep going even if you think no one is paying attention!
7. Favourite place: The Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough FC)
8. What's the funniest song title you've ever heard: Half Man Half Biscuit always have excellent titles, e.g '99% of gargoyles look like Bob Todd' , or I'm not sure if I imagined this one but I think they had a track called 'F***ing hell it's Fred Titmus'. Quality.
9. Tell us one song you'd wished you'd written: I wish I had written "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space" by Spiritualized. It is one song that always makes me stop what I am doing and sit there in awe.
10. Who would you like to collaborate with: I would like to collaborate with Kevin Shields, to be able to see how he manages to get such awesome sounds from guitars and pedals. I would also love to work with Dave Fridmann, it seems to have become popular to criticise his production but I still think he is at the top of his game.
