My Captive Audience Is Your Captive Audience

After hearing their auspicious debut EP, I wanted to know a little more about My Captive Audience (MCA), the closest thing to both Verve and Oasis to come from the north since, well, Verve and Oasis! I got in touch with their singer Wayne Welch for a Q&A session.

Glasswerk: WHO would you like to take down, mid-concert, with your sniper rifle?

Wayne Welch: Peter Andre! Or any other untalented celebrities who get their fame off the back of cheesy reality programs.

GW: WHERE do you draw your inspiration from?

WW: We have many influences, not only from great bands such as the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Paul Weller/The Jam, but from films, literature and good old life experience.

GW: WHAT makes MCA worth following?

WW: In the short period of time the band has been together we’ve really bonded. We’ve got a really good vibe and believe we have potential to write strong meaningful songs. Hopefully, that’ll allow us to establish ourselves as a popular and respected band on the local Manchester scene as well as appealing to the general public.

GW: WHY What's your all time biggest Why question?

WW: Why can’t decent bands with acres of talent get their break? There are so many good Manchester bands, including us, that deserve to get signed.

GW: WHEN do you go to bed, more half nine with a half read paper or more half four with fully red eyes?

WW: Dom Turner (lead guitar & lyrics) doesn’t sleep; he’s an insomniac by choice! Matt Conway (rhythm guitar) goes when he’s out of Jack Daniels! Harry Lansley (drums) goes when he’s told! Lucas Rooney (bass) is constantly asleep like a dormant volcano! Me (vocals & lyrics), I just sleep when I need to!

GW:Thanks for your time Wayne! I’m sure it won’t be long before it happens for you guys.
