Introducing...Everyone an Army

YMC chats to Everyone an Army from Scarborough.

YMC: Who are the band members and how long have you been playing together?

We have Iain Hunter on drums/Percussion, Lee Simpson on Bass and Martyn on guitar and vocal duties.

YMC: Do you have any other musical projects?

Lee has a solo electronica/glitch project called Citizen Tank (myspace.com/citizentank)
And Martyn and Iain piss around in a two-piece noise band making stupid music they can't even play properly.

YMC: Who are your main influences, who are you listening to at the moment?

Lee is listening to a lot of Glitchy, experimental stuff and Iain is listening to band like This will Destroy you and stuff from the US instrumental scene and Martyn is listening to Leeds bands like Wild Beasts and Grammatics.
We're all influenced by tons of stuff! However, i think it's hard to point them out when listening to our music.

YMC: You have just released an EP, have you enjoyed making it?

It was hard. Reaaaally hard. There were the three of us playing live in a sweaty, greenhouse style room. The problem with recording it live was that we all had to be happy with the take and playing through the same song 10 times over can get quite tedious.
We didn't speak much straight after recording.

YMC: Where is it available?

The tracks from the EP are streaming on our myspace(.com/everyoneanarmy)
and a physical release is planned for sometime in April.

YMC: Do you have any plans for this year? Any gigs coming up?

Were gonna get out there is much as possible this year, we're already working on new material and were talking to various people about possible festival appearances.
You'll be hearing a lot from us in '10!
