The Parlotones are coming! Here’s an exclusive interview with Paul Hodgson…

South African rock sensation The Parlotones will be performing live on The Baggot stage on Thursday June 2nd at 9.30pm at McGettigan’s Jumeirah Lake Towers in the Bonnington Hotel.

Paul Hodgson from the South African band, talked to us about the group’s love of the Irish, reality shows and super pranks ahead of their McGettigan’s gig.

Parlotones at McGettigan's JLT

The group originally formed back in 1998 as a band called, Crayon. Playing a mix of indie, rock and pop music, the group were influenced by British bands like The Cure, The Smiths, Muse, Coldplay and Radiohead. After a few years experimenting with various sounds, the four-piece changed their name to The Parlotones and are known for their melodic rock sound.

The Parlotones have recorded six studio albums and toured across South Africa, Europe, Canada, South America and the USA and have performed with bands like Coldplay and Snow Patrol. The band will be performing all of the classics from their 6 studio albums ‘Episoda’ (2003), radiocontrolledrobot (2005), A World Next Door to Yours (2007), Stardust Galaxies (2009), Journey Through the Shadows (2012) and Stand Like Giants (2013).

The band will be followed by a live DJ set from ‘Step On’ who will take over the decks until late.

Paul Hodgson: The finals are coming up now on Sunday. We actually went to watch one of the live recordings of the show. I think he’s one of the better judges, he’s very well-spoken and of course it’s quite an intense thing, because you are critiquing someone.

McG’s: http://hsalegal.com/index.php/avijeet-lala bdswiss com opinioni The contestants are obviously trying to catch a break. Does this take the band back to the early days of trying to get noticed?

PH: Yeah I mean when we started, we would just take what we could get. We’d play for free. You slowly build up fans and you have time to get used to the experience. However, on these reality shows, some of it is quite fake because you have a band playing for you, you have a stylist and an audience and it’s all awesome. However, once the show is over, then you are in the real world were you have to go hustle again and get a start. I like the old school way of getting together and playing for years. Look at any successful band and they didn’t just win a TV show.

McG’s: binäre optionen handelszeiten You are performing at McGettigan’s JLT. What do you love about the Irish?

PH: I love that they like drinking.

McG’s: http://swazilandforum.com/?n=beste-plattform-binare-optionen beste plattform binare optionen You are South African, are there any similarities to Irish?

PH: We are really friendly and we love food and being outside and so it’s quite similar to the Irish people. Our first ever international tour was to Ireland.

McG’s: investimenti opzioni binarie What can we expect from the gig?

PH: We are going to play some old songs as well as new ones.

McG’s: http://levne-vanocni-darky.cz/darek/2008694/corratec-x-vert-29-0-2-2014-44cm forex piattaforma demo Do you have a favourite song to play?

PH: I’d say Push Me to the Floor is probably our most popular song. We play it every show for the past decade and it’s a great sing-along song.

McG’s: أربح الأموال مجانا You’ve won quite a few awards. Is success winning trophies or having a great fan base?

PH: In the beginning you are quite attentive to radio charts etc but eventually it doesn’t matter where you are on the charts as long as you have people coming to your shows.

McG’s: http://taxidartex.ro/?antoni=bdswiss-nur-abzocke bdswiss nur abzocke What did you want to be as a kid?

PH: I wanted to be a stuntman when I was a kid or a fireman. Boys always want to be in the army or something like that.

McG’s: binäre optionen demokonto ohne anmeldung bdswiss So being a rock star isn’t too bad. Do you lead a rock n’ roll lifestyle?

PH: Well we are all married and have kids so we are better behaved than we used to be.

McG’s: http://agrupjrosa.net/?chort=erfahrungen-mit-bdswiss erfahrungen mit bdswiss Have you ever pulled a prank on each other?

PH: Actually the last time we were in Dubai, you know how in the airport they raffle off those sports cars, like a Ferrari. Well, our drummer entered one of those and so when he got back to South Africa, we got a radio station there to do a prank, and call him and tell him that he won the car. He was so excited that he won.
