Okay, so I "interviewed" i.e. had just an actual chat with Press To Meco two entire months ago at Hevy Fest. Long story (it's not long at all, this is about it) short, we chatted about some weird things and went off on some insane tangents and I really wanted to do some cool stuff with that. BUT all this time on and I still haven't. But now I have (kinda) have so to wet your appetite for real life things that we spoke about, here are some... peculiar things that we spoke about:
Press To Meco are a Crawley/Croydon based three piece - consisting of Luke Caley, Adam Roffey and Lewis Williams - who have a been a band since I genuinely started paying attention to unsigned bands however many years ago. The trio FINALLY released their debut album 'Good Intent' yesterday and I thought it was probably about time I shared this with the world. As an indicator of what's happened over the past two months, here's what happened when I mentioned their album back at Hevy Fest.
Much as was the case with The Gospel Youth who I also interviewed at Hevy (you can read that here), many of Press To Meco's influences played Hevy this year. Luke explains, "It’s probably the best sort of small festival we’ve been to, to be honest. Just as music fans we’d probably be here anyway because the lineup's so good this year."
But even though Lewis admits that he was a huge Fightstar fan as a teenager, sharing a stage with the likes of them and A Wilhelm Scream doesn't seem to phase Press To Meco. "I feel more spoilt," Lewis says. "Just because you get a monitor engineer and we’ve got our sound guy with us." Luke adds,"We’re still at a stage where we play a nice set up and a nice stage. I hope we never take that for granted though."
Despite at this point being distracted by both Black Peaks and Coheed and Cambria, I did manage to ask the most important question of all, what's your favourite sandwich filling? "Something with meat and lots of salad," says Luke. That'll do I guess...
