  • Donegal post interview

    Experimental Shortcuts
    By Sean Bushell
    editorial@donegalpost.com

    Experimental Shortcuts are an exciting young band based in Killybegs with tons of potential. The lads have already shared the stage with acts including The Revs, Waterboys and Gerry Fish. The Donegal Post talks to the promising Experimental Shortcuts.

    Who all is in the band?
    Ciaran McBrearty – vocals, Jamie Ratcliffe – guitar, Evan Bourke – drums and Owen Boyle on bass.

    Where did you get your name from?
    We got lost in Dublin one time, going to an Aslan gig and Jamie had the bright idea to try some ‘experimental shortcuts’.

    What are your influences?
    Rory Gallagher, Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix and the Chilli Peppers.
    Ciaran – You don’t want to know my influences!

    How would you describe your sound?
    Like the soundtrack to a bad porn

    What has been your highlight to date?
    Evan – It was really cool playing support to The Revs in An Grianan.
    Jamie – Playing in the Black Box in Galway as part of Blast was great.
    Owen – Supporting the likes of Gerry Fish and The Waterboys was brilliant too.

    What does the future hold?
    Evan - We hope to practice and do a bit of touring.
    Jamie – We have to do it before we’re 27 though!
    Ciaran – Get a van too.

    Favourite colour? Aluminous black.

    Favourite smell? Cheese cake, Lemon obviously! Or Evan after a gig.

    Favourite Girls Aloud member? The red head for trying.

    Oasis or Blur? Oasis, but Graham Coxon’s solo stuff is great.

    Mr T or the Fonz? You can’t pick between the two!

    Boxers or briefs? Boxers. Jamie – neither!

    Take That or Boyzone? Boyzone, supporting the Irish!

    Favourite football team? You’re asking the wrong boys! Dream Team or Port Vale…

    Who would you most like to meet? Socky from the Den.

    First person you would invite to a party? Jesus, Disco Stu and Jumangi.

    Last person you would invite to a party? Bush, Robbie Williams and Christina Aguilera.

    Best song ever? Where’s me jumper?

    Beatles or Rolling Stones? Beatles (After a lengthily discussion).

    One word on Scissor Sisters? Spice.

    Most annoying song ever? National Express by Devine Comedy. The Birdie Song.
    Jamie – No not the Birdie Song, I know the whole dance!

    Favourite ice-cream flavour? Neapolitan, the one with the three flavours.

    Kit Kat, a biscuit or bar? Bar

    One word on Bono? Spacer! He’s a broom-stick!

    What came first, the chicken or the egg? Evan – I actually have a theory on that. It’s hard to explain, but basically it was a half-assed chicken (through evolution and mix breeding) then the egg.

    We would collectively like to make a statement, that we are holding Bruce for ransom! For further information on Experimental Shortcuts, check out their Bebo page http://expsband.bebo.com or their myspace: www.myspace.com/experimentalshortcut...

    Hey Experimental Shortcuts, I am a big fan of your band and while I was browsing the web yesterday, I stumbled across this Music Nation contest. You guys should really check it out. I think you’d be perfect for it. It’s for Indie Artists with a music video and if you enter, your video will be featured on Babelgum and could be chosen for a new mobile video channel. You can also win a performance slot in London or even a chance to go into the studio with Universal Music. Just make sure you check out the technical info page because there are some guidelines for the video listed there. I really wanna see you guys make it so please enter! I promise to vote for you. Here’s the link: http://musicnation.com/contest/babelgum Good luck, Caroline
