Q&A Scene: Horse from Large No 12’s

Tell us about your new single/album/tour

Next project, Horse and Wes are going to Thailand and Cambodia to do a few gigs. A kind of working holiday in August 2017. We did a similar thing in Europe a few months ago but this ones closer to home.

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?

We seem to be on a run of gigs where people dance and it’s so much fun getting out amongst them.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

Doing our last record (Long Train Ride), the producer had a stuffed cane toad which he sat in the monitor speaker, which came to life when the speaker vibrated. Whenever we got too arty, the dancing cane toad would crack us up, rendering any arguments pointless.

What, or who, inspires you?

Stories of random strangers.

Which song do you wish you wrote?

Give me some money by Spinal Tap.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?

The Large No 12’s took their name from a Pizza. A spur of the moment decision. We didn’t want a name that meant anything.

What’s next for you?

The happening Memo Music Hall open day gig Sunday 16th July 2017. A few Melbourne gigs, then off to South East Asia.

What’s your scene?

An endless fascination with the human condition and the curious way we behave in it. Sometimes it seems like we’re in a David Attenborough episode.
