Spineless YesMen: post punks from London, UK (E117)

About: Spineless YesMen

Spineless YesMen: post punk five piece from London, UK played in E117 of the ArenaCast

"...It is two fold. Firstly its a quote from The Simpsons where Mr Burns is losing his company and says to Smithers "If only I hadnt listened to all those Spineless Yes Men" Also our guitarist, Chris Doughty, has some friends in Newcastle, who, whatever he does and whatever he wears and says, agree with him without fail, irrelevant of the ridiculousness of his comments!!!"

1. How would you describe your average fan?
Our average fan would be in their 20s, male or female, with a rock and roll and punk rock background. A tattoo here and there, a love of honest music from the heart and someone who loves a fun, energetic show!

2. What are the sources of your inspiration?
The bands which inspire us are very varied. We listen to social distortion, the black keys, the libertines, nina simone, rise against and numerous genres; folk, rock and roll, punk, blues, jazz, classical, rock, pop and soul, to name a few!!

3. What bands featured in E117 of the Arenacast you liked the most? With whom you would like to make a common gig?
We liked MadCraft the most. Their are over in the UK this month and we'd love to play with them.

4. How do you think our generation would be passing the music to the next generations? Cds, vinyls, or links to itunes?
I think it will be a combination of cds and vinyls. There has been a big resurgence in the vinyl market recently which I hope continues. I'm sure people will be passing on mp3s and wav. files to their kids but it would be a shame if that was the only way they were passed on.

5. What would you choose: a performance on the biggest stage of your country or a new album record? Why?
I think we'd rather record a new album which would hopefully allow us to play on the biggest stages in England and Europe. I think you have the potential to reach more people with a new album than just one big performance!
