Two Minutes With Looking Glass

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Before they support doom giants Pallbearer in Sydney, we spend a couple of minutes with Canberra metal stalwarts Looking Glass and find out what’s new.

Describe your music in five words or less.
Cosmic, ephemeral, guitar, bass, drums

What’s going on in the world of Looking Glass?
We’re just finishing up recording our fourth album and working on tunes that might end up being on our fifth.

What motivates you to make music?
Life would be desolate without it.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
Lows — when Clinton moved to Perth for two years.
Highs — heading to NZ three times and supporting Saint Vitus.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
The Birthday Party, Graham Central Station, Goatsnake and Rush.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
Lachlan. He is the least thin and vegan anyway.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Josh from I Exist having his guitar stolen by scum from a gig on the Central Coast last week.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
The Birthday Party, Hard-Ons, The Easybeats, Tigerflesh at the Terrace Bar, Canberra (RIP).

Looking Glass join Hawkmoth in support of Pallbearer at Hermann’s Bar in Sydney on Saturday, June 20. Tickets on sale now through
