Inside Anteloup: Interview with Pat
Last but not least in our interviews with the band is Pat on bass, who's also a gifted and prolific songwriter.
How did you come to join Anteloup?
Well Luis and I were playing in a cover band- in Middle6, we were quite good actually - now here is where the story gets muddled. Luis says he approached me to do some originals.
Who's your musical hero?
Great songwriters, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Burt Bacharach, anyone that has written a song that people have enjoyed over many years. Currently the person touched by this greatness is Frank Ocean. Bandwise, there is only one band - Radiohead with their In Rainbow album.
What's your first musical memory?
Sugar, Sugar by the Archies... and Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell. These two just sort of sit together in my mind. Sugar Sugar has got to be a classic, Bob Marley did a version of it!
If Anteloup were playing on Later with Jools, who else would you like to be on the bill?
Radiohead, Frank Ocean, Neil Young, Sufjan Stevens.
If Anteloup were a food, what would it be?
Peanut butter, topped with Jam on Toast.
What was your weirdest experience playing with Anteloup?
Less weird but best moment ... looking around and seeing people sing along with Crown and Lock at a gig we played with Gallery 47.
If you weren't in Anteloup, which band would you like to be in?
Oooh, gosh, only Anteloup would have me... l guess radiohead or Chic or The Stone Roses might let me stand near their amp holding the guitar legs in place.
I not a big drinker, so usually just follow what one of the band goes with... after saying that, l am developing a taste for whiskey
Favourite album of all time?
Songs In the Key Of Life, Stevie Wonder
Which was your favourite Anteloup gig?
2021 Oxjam gig, basically because of our singer. He was himself.
