"Pete tells me you've done our sister,"
states Georgia as both she and her brother Justin sit on the
leather couch at the end of the room.
Their sister would be Jem and I explain that this is not literally
and only in the interviewing sense.
"You wish and along with everyone else," she says
with a cheeky grin.
Probably, but I explain that I had originally hoped to try
and interview W.O.M.B. without mentioning their sister. Unfortunately
I failed. If only I had kept my mouth shut.
Weapons Of Mass Belief aka Weapons or W.O.M.B.
would form from the works of Justin who at 14 in the seaside
town of Penarth in Wales would discover David Bowie's music.
The self-confessed huge fan of The Pixies, Jeff Buckley and
Marc Bolan pre T Rex, would later discover the world of music
technology and then form a band.
"This is how the band's sound developed," begins
Justin or JG to the band's fans. "When we added a guitarist,
bassist and a live drummer I was no longer programming. So
the sound developed into a rock fashion."
Influenced by the dance elements of Prodigy, Beastie Boys
the band found themselves compared against their influences
alongside RATM, Linkin Park, Supergrass crossed with Eminem,
Cypress Hill and strangely B52s. I throw my own into the pot
and mention close suggestions of Senser, which causes a reaction
"I haven't heard their songs but others have also said
that to me. It fascinates me if it is similar, that two bands
can just separately come across a similar sound." >>
