I interviewed Simon Jones from The Holidays Band this week.
Can you describe your music?
We don’t really fit into a genre so I will say “Bongo Clash”.
You’re about to release Post Paradise. What was the recording process?
It was an interesting learning process. At first we went to go into a studio but then we decided with the pressure of a studio and watching the clock, we would do it at home. This way we could record it the way we wanted and do it a creative way without any time restrictions. The whole process took about 9 months.
What is your ultimate dream gig and who would you play with?
A festival anywhere with The Flaming Lips.
Papa vs Pretty are supporting you on this tour, did you choose them?
Yes we did. We’d seen them a few times live and they live in Sydney and so do we, so we thought we’d bring them along.
What can people who have never seen your shows before expect?
A lot going on, busy and pretty!
The Holidays will be performing live in Adelaide on October 23rd at Jive, 181 Hindley St.
