MIMR Band Chat: Blue Kassette

The Headline act at this weekends Lock 38 records gig at The Castle are Dynamic indie quartet Blue Kassette who are sadly after this show will be calling it a day.

MIMR spoke to Jon from the band about this decision as well as the gig for Lock 38 records.


MIMR: Glad to have Blue Kassette on the blog, MIMR is sad to hear that the upcoming Manchester gig will be the final one for the band. Was this a hard decision to make and will you all still be involved in music in some way?

Jon: Hello! and thanks for having us! Well after we’d had some time away we came back and it had lost some momentum, so between us it felt like the most appropriate decision. All of us definitely! It wont be the last you’ve heard of us, individually or together, just not as Blue Kassette!

MIMR: What’s been your most memorable gig to play and why?


Jon: Hello! and thanks for having us! Well after we’d had some time away we came back and it had lost some momentum, so between us it felt like the most appropriate decision. All of us definitely! It wont be the last you’ve heard of us, individually or together, just not as Blue Kassette!


MIMR: So Lock 38 records gig is in Manchester, the home of music for many, what do you have planned for us at The Castle for last hurrah?

3) Well, with the release of all our recorded music on the day of the gig as a ‘Best Of’ we intend to showcase all of it and we’re coming on to one hell of an entrance song. Nothing out of the ordinary just good music.

MIMR: As a band do you feel you’ve achieved what you set out to do and what was your favourite part about the experiences you’ve gone through as a group?

4) In a sense yes, we gigged up and down the country, recorded in a studio’s, took part in photo shoots, filmed music videos, got played on the radio, so yeah as a band what more can you want from those things, i’d hoped we’d have go further than we did, but alas it was not meant to be! Not as Blue Kassette anyway. I think for me all the behind the scenes stuff, driving to gigs, practicing, generally hanging out with the band, is just as fun as all the musical commitments! Flying down the motorway at god knows what time with ‘Freebird’ by Lynyrd Skynyrd is just something else.


MIMR: It’s been pleasure to have you on the blog, good luck with whatever the future holds and have a great christmas too. What would you say would be your favourite xmas song?

Jon: Thanks very much, you too and anytime! I think It’d Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas is an absolute banger!
