A year on from their debut album and the History of Apple Pie are back with a tweaked line-up and their second offering, Feel Something.
Ahead of their headline show at The Lexington on 15th October I caught up with the new kid on the block Joanna Curwood, who used to play in a Bo Diddley cover band, Diddler, with the Horrors Rhys Webb, for a quick catch up.
It’s been a year and a half since your debut album, what’s new?
We recorded our second album, Feel Something, which came out on 29th September. Now we’re on a UK tour for a week, then we’re going to Europe at the end of November. I joined at the end of last year as new bassist.
In their new band of the day preiview of HOAP, the guardian described you as “They’re at the Strawberry Wine stage of their development. Let’s see if they’ve got a You Made Me Realise in them” In terms of MVB, where are you now?
We all like MBV but I don’t really see a huge similarity between them and us to be honest, even though that reference is made quite a lot. We’re just writing songs that we like and hope other people will too, whatever the pigeon-hole might be.
If you could do a HOAP super group with any other band (alive or dead) who would it be?
Gotta be the Beatles.
If I referred to something as being “as American as apple pie”, what would you say?
Gimmie some custard.
