Introducing...Mutiny for Hire

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

MFH: Joel Crosland - Vocals/Guitar, Dave Pool - Bass,Steve Holmes - Drums, been together since July 09 after the demise of our respective previous bands.

YMC: Who are your main influences?

MFH: Anything with some guts, Dave and Joels biggest influence is definately the 90's grunge they grew up listening to,Metal has its place in there too and you can hear it in Holmes drumming. If you think 'queens of the stone age' 'nirvana' and a melodic version of 'deftones' all mashed up together that is pretty close to our particular brand of alt rock

YMC: Who writes the songs?

MFH: Joel takes main songwriting duties but we all have our input, if someone comes up with a sweet riff then it'll get made into a song and then Joel will write some lyrics to wail over the top hahaha

YMC: What venues do you like to play at? Have you found it easy to get gigs?

MFH:Since we recorded our EP 'stop the generals' we are finding it easier to get gigs, as far as the venues we like then Carpe Diem in Leeds is always a pleasure as the crowd is always receptive. its still early days for us and we just want to try different venues all over Yorkshire to see where we go down well, at the end of the day taking our music to play to a crowd who appreciates it is what its all about for us.

YMC: You've just recorded your debut EP, was that a positive experience?

MFH:Yeah it really was, we went to see Ross at Ghosttown recording and he did us proud, we're really happy with the sound he created for us after the mixing and mastering and all that guff. We dont go in for over produced sterile sounds, we like it to sound nice and raw and loud just like we are live hahaha

YMC: Where and in what formats is the EP available?

MFH:only on CD at the moment available at gigs or if you contact us at www.myspace.com/mutinyforhire
