Chaos Ensues with High Tiny Hairs - An Interview

Garage, psych, farfisa, fuzz, psicodelismo garageiro a serviço dos bons sons é a receita apresentada pelos estadunidenses do High Tiny Hairs.

A estreia foi o Ep homônimo lançado há um ano atrás e que chega tardiamente aqui no TBTCI, mas já chega exalando acidez. 

Pra ouvir bem alto, em todos os sentidos e preferencial viajando!!!!

***** Interview with High Tiny Hairs *****

Q. When did High Tiny Hairs start? Tell us about the history...
High Tiny Hairs started in Minneapolis about a year ago. I was already in a couple of bands at the time but needed another outlet. It was during the winter when the project began so rather than freeze my ass off I spent my time in my studio at home. Before I knew it I had a whole slew of songs. Only problem was I didn’t have a band. Luckily some good friends helped me play out. We played a couple of shows but then I moved to Spain having met my girlfriend. I’d been playing with Fuck Knights off and on so we had been playing Spain a lot. I instantly fell in love the first time there. Now I live in a small city called MontBlanc where I met the new members of HIgh TIny Hairs.

Q: Who are your influences?
Ayeee!! Thats gonna be hard but I’ll try Brian Eno, Syd Barrett, Alex Chilton, Animals, The Saints, The Monks, Johnny Thunders, The Kinks, The Modern Lovers, The Sonics, Can, The Zombies, David Bowie. The Damned, Vasilines,  The Troggs, The Specials.
