MIMR Band Chat: Sauce

With their bouncy, vibrant rock n roll sound whistling to your ears, Manchester’s power quartet Sauce are ready to spice up your life and shake you out of the doom and gloom we currently face.

We spoke to the band about lockdown, influences and mad haircuts.

MIMR: Great to have you on the blog, who are Sauce and what are your main influences when creating your sound?  

Sauce: Our influences are normally people in our lives, going out on the piss and wanting some good in the world. We love proper guitar bands – Pink Floyd, Queen, Oasis, The Beatles, Black Sabbath and Arctic Monkeys would probably be a good summary of everything that goes into Sauce.  

MIMR: We have been thoroughly enjoying your recent single and accompanying video too, tell us about the track and are they’re any other releases planned for this year?  

Sauce: You know what – at the moment I have no clue at all whether we’ll be releasing anything else yet. We’re in the early stages of recording our own stuff, but I doubt that’s gonna be release quality for a while yet. Basically at the moment, the aim is to write shit loads of tunes, record them as demos and see where that takes us.   

MIMR: It’s tough times for any band in the industry currently, how has the virus affected your immediate plans as a band?  

Sauce: We can’t think about any level of decent gigs which is the fucking worst thing of all – we just want to be at a stage where we can play in front of a crowd of people having it. It’s one thing writing some big tunes, but shite if you’ve no one to play them to. The virus has fucked everyone over so we’re certainly not gonna complain too much though. The only thing we can do is be proactive as we can and get our teeth stuck into something away from gigs.  

MIMR: Personally how has the lockdown been for you all and in your spare time what activities have you done?  

Sauce: The most mad thing was George shaving his hair off earlier on in lockdown, fuck knows when now. He did it on Facebook live, and his Mum’s a hairdresser so she took care of it. Absolutely class, and raised a big chunk of money for the NHS too.

MIMR: I have to ask this, with your band name being so, what is your favourite sauce?  

Sauce: We had to rank Sauces once on a radio show earlier this year, and I’m pretty sure Siracha came out on top, mayo was up there and I think Ketchup finished at the bottom – someone had to though. I think we can mostly agree that ketchup is sweet with a chippy / on a chip butty. Make of that what you will.  

MIMR: With the thought of live music returning any time soon still appearing to be a while away, what venues have you enjoyed and which ones do you miss hanging out in?  

Sauce: YES is a top venue, we played there last December. That was the first place I went to for a crispy pint once the pubs reopened so I guess I must have missed YES the most. It feels like so fucking long since I went to a gig or we played one. I miss all the venues to be fair. I’d play anywhere tonight if we could.   

MIMR: Thanks for chatting to us, where can people follow you on social media?
