Please tell us about the name “Gangs” and the beginning of the group.
Johnny (drummer): We grew up together in Tallaght (Dublin) and all loved music. We played in bands and that but less than two years ago decided to get serious. We started GANGS and really it was about getting the sound right so we were writing and recording for most of our first half year together. The name is really about what we are trying to achieve, it’s about reviving the GANG ethic like the old Mods or the Ska’s.
Jordan: I suppose we’re a gang ourselves, we’re into the same music we dress the same you know? A lot of the people that come to our gigs dress the same as us and that’s what it’s all about.
“…this is only the beginning…”
How does it feel to have such success in Ireland?
James: It’s been great, people are catching on to our sound and loving our live shows. Its hard to believe we only formed a while back but we’re not taking all of this interest for granted, we jam 4 times a week, we’re writing every day, it has been down to hard work really.
Johnny: We really appreciate the way people have taken to us but this is only the beginning, obviously you want to be big at home but we know this is just the surface we’re scraping at. We want GANGS to be big in every country.
Ireland has been giving the world wonderful artists over time, which Irish artists stand out in your opinion?
Jordan: From Ireland? Obviously the likes of Thin Lizzy and U2 standout but there have been great bands like The Blades too that wouldn’t have had the same success but were great acts and really slick dressers too (laughs).
Dan: Those two bands burst out during Ireland’s last recession in the 80’s, they say that’s when a country produces its best (artists) (laughs) so maybe we’re gonna be the next ones.
What or Who did you listen to musically during childhood?
James: We all have very similar taste, we all love The Beatles and a lot of the British bands like The Jam, The Stone Roses and The Smiths too.
Dan: The Specials and The Small Faces too
“we’d love to hit America…”
What do Gangs have in store for the rest of the UK, Europe, and America?
Jordan: We are writing our first album at the moment but before that we’ll release an EP, maybe in the Summer. We have a tour lined up too so we’ll take in London and the rest of Ireland and maybe finish up in the UK again in Liverpool or Manchester. Obviously we’d love to hit America when we sign to a label.
Johnny: Might happen sooner than you think (smiles). But most of the interest in our music has been from the UK so that seems to be the path we’re on now but yea we’d like to hit some of the big US festivals this year if we could.
What has been the most challenging obstacle to overcome so far for you guys?
James: For a while we couldn’t get the gigs we wanted but you have to be patient and that’s what we did. We knew our music just needed to be heard. We kept at it and started to headline to great venues, we picked up a few awards and all of a sudden things took off really here.
Tell everyone something about Ireland that we do not know.
Johnny: (laughs) That Germany owns us.
Dan: A decent band hasn’t come out of this country in around ten years, now’s about time (smiles).
Now what does the group do for fun and recreation?
Johnny: All of our free time is taken up with the band really but it doesn’t feel like work at all, it’s what we all live for and when it’s the four of us jamming we don’t really want to be anywhere else.
Can we expect a full length album in the near future?
Jordan: Definitely, the album is progressing nicely but we won’t be putting that out independently, we’ll leave that to our future label.
Where does the creativity in your songwriting spawn from?
Dan: Well the bands that we are into have had really positive influences on us but when we are all together something special happens. We don’t have any real format to our writing, sometimes I’ll write a rift, sometimes Jordan will write the lyrics first and we’ll all build from there.
James: Jordan and Johnny (drummer) wrote the last song. There’s great synergy between us all and that comes through in the music we write.
“ Long-term, we want it all!”
What are some short term and long term goals for Gangs?
Jordan: Short term, sign with a major that complements our sound. Get the first album out in the next year or so too.
Johnny: Long-term, we want it all, European/World tours, headline the major festivals we have high hopes the four of us, what’s the point in settling for anything else?
What do you think of Alwayz Therro magazine? Give your final thoughts to our readers!
Jordan: Well it’s not just music you cover is it? its fashion too and we love our fashion. Alwayz Therro is a slick music mag, its why we jumped at this interview.
Alwayz Therro thanks all the members of Gangs and wish them great fortune and blessings on their musical journey.
