Q&A with Gavin Bowles – Picture Perfect

picture perfectHaving just released their brand new film clip for ‘I Know You Better’, Gavin Bowles of Sydney band Picture Perfect took time out to answer a few questions for LifeMusicMedia.com

:: What track changed your life ::

That’s a hard question. I’d have to say ‘Longview’ by Green Day. It definitely blew me away the first time I heard it. (Another one would be Hendrix’s version of ‘All Along The Watchtower’).

:: What is your favourite Album ::

‘American Idiot’ by Green Day. I always used to get shit about being a Green Day fan, but their music had a huge impact on me and that album is just a masterpiece, in every sense.

Life is for Living – Elize Strydom catches up with Scott Owen from The Living End

Interview: Elize Strydom

The Living End living end

The Living End has never been busier – and that’s the way they like it. National tour? No problem. European jaunt? Bring it on. An album of demos and rarities? Absolutely.
 
This time last year the Melbourne three-piece was preparing to unleash their fifth studio album, White Noise. It came after a period of uncertainty that threatened to put an end to things. After a brief hiatus Chris Cheney, Scott Owen and Andy Stachan resolved to pick up the tools and get the ball rolling. Scott says after a shaky start, the pieces started to fit.
 
“There was a very distinct moment when things started happening and the tunes were getting us pretty excited. And it did sort of feel like a bit of a comeback. That break had given us time to think about how we felt about the band. It put everything into perspective so when things started happening and songs started coming together there was a pretty amazing confidence in the band. We did put pressure on ourselves. We did say we’re not going to bother making another album unless it’s a bloody good one. We’re not going to settle for second best, we wanna make sure if we’re going to do something it’s gonna be something that will make all three of us really happy. And when we started doing that all the fear and the pressure fell away and everything started going really well again. And I think it shows on the record. The response to the record has been great which has really boosted our confidence.”
