On the eve of the latest Deco Records gig at Gullivers, MIMR introduce Tin Mole who will be gracing the stage with plenty of edgy electronic grooves
MIMR spoke to Tom ahead of the gig about Influences, playing live and Take That.
MIMR: Great to have you on MIMR. Who is Tin Mole and what’s influences do you have in creating your sounds?
Tom: Tin Mole is silvery-white metal with a long muzzle, and very small eyes, feeding mainly on worms, grubs, and other invertebrates and takes influence from a whole variety of sounds. Loads of punk influence as well as plenty of electronic music.
MIMR: What’s the latest with the band?
Tom: Not been long since the full band started writing together which has been very productive. There’s a new tune we’ve been recording that’s on
the cusp of being finished so expect that in the next month or so. Apart from that we’ll be doing the odd gig here and there
MIMR: Thrilled to see you on the bill for the latest Deco Records gig this saturday. What’s your favourite thing about playing live?
Tom: We’re happy to be playing the Deco records gig, we’ve heard good things. It’s always good to play in front of a crowd and it makes the hard work at practice feel justified. It’s a good sesh as well which we all like to do, sometimes we even get a couple of free beers if we’re lucky.
MIMR: What other bands in Manchester are you enjoying at the moment?
Tom: I like duds they’re decent, and we’re all huge fans of Take That who I should have mentioned in the influences question
MIMR: With festival season almost done for another year, which festival would be a dream to play at?
Tom: Has to be Glastonbury. We’re hoping for the pyramid stage next year.
MIMR: Thanks a lot for chatting to us, have a good gig on saturday. How can people follow you on social media?
Tom: We’re on most of the social media platforms. Just type in Tin Mole to
any of them and it should come up. There aren’t many bands or people
with the same name which is strange.
