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.
