With a reputation for delivering blistering live performances and their latest EP ‘Holy Sick’ in tow, WAAX will be hitting the stage at the 2016 ‘The Blurst Of Times” Festival. We caught up with WAAX drummer Tom Bloomfield for a chat.

First of all, congratulations on the release of your 2015 EP ‘Holy Sick’.

Thankyaaaa

‘Holy Sick’ has been extremely well received. Do you enjoy the writing/recording process or prefer touring and playing live shows?

That’s a toughy, I think we love them both for different reasons, playing live probably has our collective heart though.

:: What track changed your life ::

John Mclaughlin’s “Extrapolation” really pulled Jazz in to focus for me when I was about 19. My guitar teacher at the time was a big John Mclaughlin fan and he introduced me to this album but it was actually Tony Oxley’s drumming on this song/album that flipped my thinking about music at that point in my life and helped me to interpret other expressionists like Elvin Jones and Tony Williams.

:: What track changed your life ::

Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground by Blind Willie Johnson. A wordless and primitive expression of pure beauty. It showed me that all artifice could be done away with and the song could be whittled to its core, transcending even language.

:: What is your favourite Album ::

Probably Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here. I have listened to it a million times and it always works.

:: What track changed your life ::

‘Road To Nowhere’ by Talking Heads. I remember hearing it on the radio in the car when I lived in Newcastle, England, and my then manager saying “Talking Heads should be the band every band aspires to, take note” and I’d never heard of them before, after that I just listened to them non-stop. My manager was right.

:: What track changed your life ::

This is a pretty big call… Off the top of my head I’d probably have to say ‘Space They Cannot Touch’ by Kate Miller Heidke. I saw her perform at Woodford Folk Festival when I was a kid and she is a major reason I started writing songs.

:: What is your favourite Album ::

I actually don’t have one all-time favourite album! It changes all the time. My more recent faves include Megan Washington’s “There There”, Lucy Rose’s “Like I Used To” and Lorde’s “Pure Heroine”.

: What track changed your life ::

Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. This is the song that introduced me to his lyrics. It is such a haunting and powerful song, with so much feeling placed in each word. Leonard Cohen has become one of my greatest inspirations and helped me to see songwriting as more of a craft to be honed than something I just did for fun.

:: What is your favourite Album ::

Leonard Cohen – Live in London
