Quick Questions With Catching Mangoes

Catching Mangoes are a three-piece rock band, George, Max and Dan, based in Brighton, UK. After forming in around 2016, they have played relentlessly around the UK and have recently recorded their debut album ‘Kevin’s Town’ in Brighton.

The album follows the tale of a young boy named Kevin on his adventures, escaping his home town in search of the truth about himself and his fellow townsfolk. In trying to figure out the mystery surrounding his long-lost father, Kevin comes to realise that only he can save his town from a terrible fate.

Quick Questions With Catching Mangoes

1. Who inspired you to start playing?

I started playing guitar when I was around 8 or 9. Can’t really remember what inspired me to start at that point but I remember loving Jimi Hendrix when I was younger. Then got into bands and thought it was super cool so never stopped.

2. Which piece of equipment couldn’t you live without? 

One of my guitars I guess. I probably play my acoustic which is a Martin most of all and do a lot of writing on that, but I never really use it outside of playing on my own. Band wise I use a Fender Jaguar Bass which I absolutely love. Planning on investing in a Mustang at some point when I get some money.

3. What’s your favourite album of the year so far? 

We’ve not released our album just yet so that makes it a tough call. Nah just kidding, Fontaines DC released a new album that I’m into, but that may have been 2020.

4. If you could have a lesson from anyone, alive or dead, who would it be? 

I reckon Jeff Buckley was a pretty cool dude and has a mega voice so I’ll go with him. Or maybe Jim Morrison.

5. What is your number one tip for any new player? 

Persistence is key but play stuff you enjoy playing, otherwise there’s no point.

 

We have our 4th a final single from our upcoming album ‘Kevin’s Town’ out on 24th June. The tune is called Bloom Orlando and we’re celebrating in style on 26th June down at the Hop Yard in Forest Row. We then take on London on 17th July and Brighton on 16th August before we hit the north later this year. Full album should be out mid August so keep ya eyes peeled for that, Vinyl pending too!
