Interview With MidiMidis
INNOVATIVE EIGHT-BIT PUNKS MAKING A RETRO, PIXELATED RACKET
MidiMidis are unlike anything you’ve ever heard. From an early age this duo have embraced everything from Gary Numan to Bauhaus, via Nirvana, The Velvet Underground and Television, but by experimenting with retro midi sounds on their old dusty laptop they have found a truly unique niche in which to wallow. Using an array of almost-forgotten consoles, Amstrads and some scuzzy guitars, Ant and Marcus create a punk-like mash-up of eight-bit barminess which is upbeat and frivolous, but simultaneously dark and serious. A very successful 2010 saw them perform at The Big Chill, Latitude, Lovebox and Secret Garden Party, as well as opening for Suede. They are currently working on their debut album which will hit the shelves later this year.
