DROP D TALKS TO… The Ady Baker Sound (UK)

DROP D TALKS TO… The Ady Baker Sound (UK)

May 4, 2019

In this 2019 series of DROP D TALKS TO... interviews, Drop D has a chat to Ady Baker of The Ady Baker Sound who is based in Reading in the UK.

Made up of Ady (vocals & samples), Jim Dorney (bass), Mark Summers (guitar) and Leo Brown (drums), The Ady Baker Sound met whilst scrapping on the playground later than most. Fast forward to a chance conversation in the pub and their eclectic creation started just over a year ago. They’ve been developing their lively sets and generating a good deal of interest. The band have found a natural rhythm to combining their diverse musical tastes, which shouldn’t work on paper but is "like baking a cake in your ear holes".

The Ady Baker Sound blend influences from the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Massive Attack, The Cure, Primal Scream and PiL to create a joyous bumper car race of breakbeats, seismic baselines, glide guitar and machine-gun drum barrages, laced with laid back vocals and lyrical weaponry.

In this episode, Drop D talks to Ady about how The Ady Baker Sound formed when four Dads met in a playground, the band's musical influences, their latest single “O.N.E.” which was produced by John Mitchell (Enter Shikari, You Me At Six and Funeral For a Friend) and plans for the band's immediate future - including playing summer festivals & releasing a brand new EP.

DROP D TALKS TO… The Gemini Effect (New Zealand)

March 27, 2019

In this 2019 series of DROP D TALKS TO... interviews, Drop D has a chat to Rob Sharp (Guitar/vocals) - the brains behind THE GEMINI EFFECT who are based in New Zealand.

THE GEMINI EFFECT are a 3 piece alternative rock band from Auckland, New Zealand. Mix in rockybluesypunkygrungeyalt noise, add intensity and listen through a psychedelic filter.
The songs are cherry picked from Rob Sharp’s brain, who plays old guitars and sings. The low frequencies are handled by Chris, the mild mannered Clark Kent of the band, and 2nd generation bass player. Kayne keeps the juggernaut on track and has been known to hit the drums very hard.

In this episode, DROP D talks to Rob about how the band started, their upcoming 2nd album release BAD ALIEN (which is due out in June) & in an exclusive, we hear a heart felt acoustic rendition of the song GUNS which is dedicated to the victims & families of the tragic Christchurch Mosque Shootings in New Zealand very recently. RIP.
