Interview: Ben Wells & The Middle Names At Bigsound 2012
It’s a big change from currently snow-capped Tasmania to stinking hot Brisbane, but Ben Wells and The Middle Names were undeterred, making the journey to the mainland for BIGSOUND.
Kicking off their chat with Music Feeds, the guys tell us about what it’s like being a young band in Tassie. As Ben Wells explains, Tassie actually has a very active music scene, with bands routinely gigging around the island. However, he points out that the downfall is that when they are ready to tour the mainland, it can’t be done half-assed, it’s either go everywhere or nowhere as the expenses are quick to climb.
Recently the band released their debut album House, Come Home. From that release, the band explain a little behind the most recent single Bear in a Birdcage, as well as the climate amongst the bandmates now that the first full-length has been released.
