Jack Barnett Takes on The 10 Questions!
When did you start to write music?
Started writing when I was about 14. I was in a band in school me and the singer wrote all of our songs together.
What made you want to get into music?
A friend of mine had started to learn to play guitar and I thought it was cool so I started to. From then on I’ve picked up any instrument that I can get my hands on!
Best venue you’ve ever played and why?
Probably Tiny Rebel at hubfest last year. I wasnt even playing my stuff I was filling in for the Oldus Fawn guitarist and had to learn everything in one afternoon. They sound was great and 0 mistakes, the most enjoyable gig in a while for me I think.
One band/artist you’d love to support?
Jamie Lenman, it wouldn’t fit at all but he’s my all time favourite song writer and his shows are outrageous.
What’s the greatest love song ever written?
Green grass by Tom Waits. Also Laisse moi t’aimer by Mike Brant.
The best album that you’ve heard this year?
This year I’m not so sure. In the past 12 months Glassjaw – material control, an album I’ve been waiting 15 years for and it didn’t disappoint.
Most overrated band/artist of all time?
So many! I don’t like the Beatles I never have, it makes some people vomit bile when I say that. What they have contributed to modern music is undeniable but I just cant get on with it.
What was the last song you streamed on Spotify?
Yeah right by Joji
Which three artists/bands should we be looking out for? (Musically not for Criminal Offences)
My cardiff music scene day one Little Rêd, Oldus Fawn is one to see live and someone a little further afield Soccer Mommy.
What do you want to accomplish next as a band?
Probably record a little more. Make things sound even bigger again.
Just would like to say thanks once again to Italia 90 for taking the 10 Questions on. Make sure you follow them and check out their music!
