Bells - Juanita
A band said able to take us to a place far eerier than Twin Peaks. A
place filled with beguiling melodies, as this four-piece reel and roll
about our heads like desire and anticipation - incidentally the twin
themes of their debut album.
For me the place is 1991, the album almost Loveless, the
band maybe The Thowing Muses, when in fact neither of these are the
case. A sumptuous outfit whose music lurches between blues-fuelled rock
to country-folk lamentations, will appear at the festival on 15th July.
Dont miss them, while in the meantime you take in their thoughts
Question: What aspect of Latitude Festival interests you the most
Juanita (HB): The thoughtful line up. Last year I saw Patti Smith
and Lavender Diamond, I
loved the variety. The totally appreciative audience. It seems everyone
there to consume art in any shape it comes, an open minded festival
Question: What can people expect you to bring to the festival and
do you have anything special planned?
Juanita (HB): Ummmm.... we try create a very intimate and Noir-ish
experience. Our audiences are usually very quiet, so that kinda vibe!
Question: Who are you most looking forward to seeing at the festival
Juanita (HB): The Good,the Bad,the Queen. Andrew Bird, CSS, Arcade
Fire, The Rapture
I guess theyre bands Ive been curious about for a while,
so it'll be groovy to see them in a festival atmosphere!
Question: If you weren't doing this what would you be doing?
Juanita (HB): I suppose as this is our last show of the tour, we'd
probably be off somewhere having a ball.... but we'll probably do that
at the festival anyways!
Question: What is your favourite colour Sheep?
Juanita (HB): I work for A.P.C.S, an organisation that works against
people colouring Sheep. It's all very sensitive!!!
Why does it always come down to sheep? Is this facination a healthy
one? Perhaps we should leave it on Juanitas thoughts, a very healthy
and sheepish one and not go about colouring them.
