Hi Craig, tell us a little bit about The Starlets...
We're Glasgow's greatest underachievers.
Tell us about an unusual place you've played a gig in the past
We once played in Coventry supporting a band called, wait for it, Gash. The posters read - " Tonight Only! GASH + the Starlets" . The audience consisted of a gang of leather clad bikers (and that was just the womenfolk). The promoter later told us we weren't "his kind of thing". Can't win them all.
Do you have any exciting plans for the rest of the year?
In November we're going to tour Japan. By then we hope to have learned some Japanese. Currently all we can say is "Shunsuke Nakamura".
Do any band members have any particular skills, hobbies or claims to fame you wish to share?
The drummer is a human cannonball
So what attracted you to play the Indietracks festival?
I like Indie pop; I like trains. What's not to like?
And finally, who are you most looking forward to seeing at the festival, and why?
A friendly bartender, by the time we arrive from Glasgow we shall be very thirsty.
Well if the frankly indecent range of drinks last year is anything to go by, that shouldn't be a problem! As always, we'll leave you with a free MP3 from the band.
