“The mutant love-child of a unicorn and a bullfrog mucking around on a glockenspiel.” Antenna Happy introduces himself.
Who are you?
Good question. Can I get back to you on that one?
What do you sound like?
The mutant love-child of a unicorn and a bullfrog mucking around on a glockenspiel during the first full moon following the autumn equinox.
Why should we listen to you?
I don’t think you should do anything that you are not comfortable with. However, I get a Mars Bar for every 10,000 plays on Spotify, so if you listen to my music and I hit that target, I’ll give you a bite of it.
What have you released so far? What else have you got coming out in the near future?
So far I have released the Pinto and Body EPs on Reinhardt, Dream 2c on Tenth Circle, Rotor / Late on my own (imaginatively-titled) Antenna Happy Recordings, and now I have a new EP coming out on Discotexas called Memory Tracks. As to the near future there are some remixes and a new self-release in the Autumn.
What song sums you up? Why?
‘Nowhere Man’ by the Beatles, but if it’s ok with you I’d rather not talk about it.
What or who is your biggest influence and why?
I’d say that my biggest influence is when. What and who have got a lot to answer for, but they’d be nowhere without when. As to why, I can’t really say. Maybe just because.
Where can we hear your music?
Sporadically in bars, clubs and private residences. If you fancy a bite of my Mars Bar you can listen online.
Where will you be in five years’ time?
Wondering where the last five years went.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
I have a very rusty camper van.
