The end of festival season is always sad – there’s no more opportunities to disgrace yourself in a field and go home with little to no consequences, it becomes less appropriate to get horrifically drunk and worst of all, less opportunity to discover new and great artists. But, worry not, for Worcester holds a golden opportunity. You may not be able to camp in a field and build up a wall of B.O. but you will find more than a few hidden gems amongst the sprawling metropolitan festival. Dotted across various venues within the city, every type of music will be showcased alongside spoken word and comedy acts on Sunday night. The best part? It’s all in aid of a wonderful charity: St. Paul’s Hostel. If you have any sense left after the summer, you’ll be heading down to soak up the talent between the 15th-17th of September.
Our favourite Worcester promoter Uncover will be taking over Saracen’s Head on the Friday with one of the best line-ups of the weekend, featuring Skewwhiff, Twist Helix and Nuns of the Tundra. Alongside those are FEET who we had to speak to…
WHO: FEET | WHERE: Saracen’s Head | WHEN: Fri 15th @ 8:10pm
How are you feeling about Worcester Music Festival? Are you excited?
Yeah looking forward to it, I found a 5 star pudding shop on trip advisor so we won’t have a bad time.
How would you like to introduce yourself to new fans?
Normally a muffled voice over a microphone, announcing we are called Feet followed by “from Coventry” in a terrible Cov accent.
How was your experience paying other festivals?
We played a festival /(hippy commune) in Luxembourg last summer, that highlight being harry getting bitten by a dog.
What was your first live performance like?
Our first show was at an acoustic event which saw a large amount of beer expertly smuggled into it, we were then kindly asked to leave after our performance.
How has your act developed since then?
We’ve had a few different haircuts and Olly now takes sweetener in his tea.
How has your local music scene affected the way you play live?
Coventry is very much a ‘Ghost town’ as an active music scene, nothing ‘special’ about it now.
Have you got any tricks up your sleeve for your performance?
Try to pretend that Harry is actually playing in tune and use props, got to love a good chair.
Are there any other acts you are looking forward to seeing or any that you’d recommend?
Meme Détroit cause we love a good meme and the Tell Me I’m Pretty Boys as they’re from Cov and they’re nice lads.
And finally, do you have any tales of the road you’d like to share with us?
Literally on the road Ollie accidentally spilled a bottle of pee all over Harry’s car cause he tried to throw it out of a closed window.
Worcester Music Festival takes place 15th-17th of September across the city and is in aid of St. Paul’s Hostel who are working to improve the care they provide for the homeless.
