Introducing...Riotbox

YMC chats to Riotbox from Sheffield

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

Jimmy and daryl have been playing togther for a while, Matt and Josh joined in the last few months, and weve been writing and gigging hard ever since.

YMC: Who are your main influences?

Main influences are trying to create a messy punky sound with melodic pop twists, much like the early 90s grunge scene, but trying to give it a more modern spin. in our latest demo we aimed for Mudhoney meets the White Stripes.

YMC
: Who writes the songs?

Songs are written together as a band, from ideas developed by each member and then brought to practice


YMC
: Have you recorded any material?

Yeah weve just recorded a new demo, it's on our myspace.

YMC
: What can people expect from a live show?
People can expect an energetic fun live show, we aim to entertain most of all

YMC
: Do you have any plans, competitions, big gigs, etc.

We're in the regional finals of live and unsigned 2010, and are gigging once or twice a week up until arpil now around Sheffield, Wakefield, London and Manchester. We are also promoting a night for local bands at the Howard Sheffield on the 1st Wed of every month. First one is today, Wednesday 3rd, bands playing are  Naked Potato, Failing Grace and of course Riotbox
