INTERVIEW: NO SIN EVADES HIS GAZE at BLOODSTOCK – “I once had a wank in a portaloo ‘cos it was raining.”

So, I bumped into tech metal upstarts No Sin Evades His Gaze at Bloodstock 2014. I made them suffer by putting them through my random question generator. This interview includes Human Centipedes and James Denton. Be warned!

no sin evades his gaze

So hi chaps! Wanna introduce yourselves and your roles in the band?
JD: I’m James, I sing/scream.
DT: I’m Dan I play guitar.
KP: I’m Kev I play guitar.

We’ll start with the usual, how are y’all? How was your set?
KP: Extremely good! It was loads of fun!
JD: Fantastic, we had an absolute blast! 

So you guys drop your début album Age Of Sedation…today in fact so I imagine you’ve not seen the reception it’s received yet?
DT: Reception? HA! We’ve got no WIFI, no 3G nothing!
JD: I don’t actually think it’s out for another 5 hours…but we’re expecting it to go down well. We think they’ll like it! We spent a while on it!

Indeed, how has the festival season treated you? You hit up Les-Fest and Tech Fest and now BOA!
JD: It’s been a joy and we’re loving it! It’s been extremely busy but it’s been wonderful. For a new band to get shows is completely humbling. 

Onto the random question generator – James picked 51 to start…Who influences your music more? Madonna or Britney Spears?
JD: Definitely Britney…
DT: I dunno…
JD: DEFINITELY BRITNEY, she’s got some well catchy licks…
DT: Madonna has good phrasing…
JD: Christina Aguilera is though…*starts singing Genie In A Bottle*
DT: NO SINGING! 

STOP!
JD: Christina tells everyone she’s a whore! Whilst we’re on the topic of Britney she’s a bit of a bitch right! Hit me baby more time, and she’s all lonely without her man. Then it’s like Ooops I did it again? Was just kidding. She’s actually awful. Like the worst person ever. I hate Britney Spears.

DAN, Give me a number!
DT: 59!

Would you rather spoon a seal or cuddle a squid?
DT: SPOON A SEAL!
JD: Squid! 

What throw on some Barry White and some candles?
JD: Barry Manilow. Always Manilow. 

Spooning a seal to Barry Manilow, that could work actually…
JD: Yeah it would. 

Kev gave me 53! So – St Anger? Or Lulu?
DT & JD – St Anger!
KP – Lulu?
JD – Lulu is basically just basically Metallica improvising with Lou Reed talking over everything…chug chug…it’s fucking awful.
JD – I want number 6 because it’s a Lamb of God song…

Alright, 50 is better though – Do you have any tracks you dread or worry about playing live?
JD: Affinity!
DT: Roll Up The Royality
JD: Yeah actually Roll Up is technically complex…this question sucks. I want number 50!

WOO! We have a winner! Say the band was put into a human centipede where would you wanna be in the centipede and why?
DT: SHOTGUN! I call shotgun!
KP: AT THE BACK! Why would you not wanna be at the back of the centipede?
DT: You wanna take in shit that has been through 3 other people?
JD: You need to be at the front! So you are gonna enjoy being at the back?

So what order would you go in?
DT: I wanna be at the front, and Kev it seems needs to be at the back. So Moat and Theo will be in the middle…
JD: I wanna be the man making it, he’s still kinda in the centipede…

You wanna stitch your band members into a human centipede? You sick bastard! On to the next – question – would you eat your dinner in a portaloo at a festival if it were hammering it down with rain?
KP: Yes…
DT: Yes…
JD: I once had a wank in a portaloo cos it was raining…
KP: Wait…I’d eat it in the rain…
JD: You just put the lid down and don’t think about the awful awful smell. It’s fine! Shit happened 😉 

Last number from Kev was 56 – Can you clap with one hand and lick your elbow?
KP: I don’t think I can do either…

Try!
KP: *one handed claps* I can do one of them…
DT: Thats pretty good that man.
JD: Licking your elbow is impossible! The things rock and people do.
KP: I just made a tit out of myself…
JD: I just said I had a wank in a portaloo!

And so I finish my interviews by asking the band to give me a question for the next band I’m gonna interview…this one is for James and it comes from Dan Foord of Krokodil/SikTh fame who asks – Do you like your life, do you? Do you really?
JD: Why did they ask me that? 
He did follow it up with I seriously hope he’s not depressed…
JD: Yes, I like my life haha! My life is great thank you. Wow thanks guys. Cheers.
And I thank you for your time chaps…catch you later for a drink. Or seven. 

‘Age Of Sedation’, the band’s debut album is out now via their Bandcamp.

Lover of Goth and all things miserable.
