INTRODUCING… PAVILION

PavilionTell me a bit about the band – the line-up? What were you all doing before you formed?

We’re a three piece consisting of myself on bass, Luke on guitar and vocals and Will on drums. We like to think of our music as a modern spin on classic rock but we’re not about to start classing our music as a particular genre. We hope to make a variety of different sounds – whatever comes together and sounds good. Ha! But the music is all rock music really.

We were all pretty close before we formed as a band. Will and Luke both studied Music together at Barnsley College. Myself and Will have known each other for as long as we can remember, and through association we got pissed together fairly often. Ha. When Will and Luke where just messing around in a the lock-up, the practise room we own, they asked if I’d join them, and together we thought it sounded alright and that we could really go somewhere with it. After this we’ve practically spend every waking moment in our lock-up making new music and getting everything exactly how we want it to sound.

What are you going to bring to the Barnsley music scene that is different?

Honestly, what I think we bring to the Barnsley music scene is the way we perform. Our music isn’t as indie as the rest of the people out there, it’s more heavy and dirty, for a lack of a better word. With every show we play we give all we’ve got and we don’t just stand onstage boringly like a lemons.

You’ve recently released a video for your song Cotters Finest? How did you put together the video and what’s the song about?

The song was named after one of our friends that left his piss in a bottle in our practice room! But we want people to put their own perspective on the song because that’s what we believe music is about. The song has many meanings and was intended to make people question its meaning. So we’d rather keep the full meaning of the song a mystery.

I heard good things about your recent gig at The Underground, especially from Lyndon from The Black Lamps and Stephen Dalton ton Mark Jackson’s Criminal Waste of Talent. How was the gig for you?

Well that was an odd gig to say the least. We’ve never had a fuck up so major in a gig but that didn’t stop us. About 30 seconds into our first song ‘Vintage’, Luke’s guitar completely broke, the bridge at the top had snapped off making it impossible to fix there and then. When we thought all was over and that we’d have to call it a day, we decided to ask the guitarist from the band before us (Stephen Dalton) if we’d be able to borrow his guitar. We half expected him to say no, but he let us borrow it, and from then on the gig went amazingly well! The crowd spured us on all the way, pumping us up into a frenzy of crazy dance moves and jumping around the stage. For our final song we got the crowd to jump on stage with us and have a dance with us, and we played on until they kicked us off.

So what happens next for you guys – gigs, festivals, recordings etc?

Well we have a lot of things in the pipeline. We have plenty of gigs lined up around Barnsley, Sheffield and all over Yorkshire really. We take every gig as it comes.
We have some big gigs coming too but for now we’ll keep those to ourselves for now. If you keep an eye on our facebook page and twitter, we’ll keep everyone updated with where we are and what we’re doing, and if any of our fans wanna come down to one of our practises or hang out we’d love to get to meet them.
