Interviews
The WHITBY GOTH MINDPROBE – Six audio interviews on site with performers

By Jordan Mooney, Matthew Sambrooke, Kane Foster and Ross Eales.

It’s a Whitby Goth tradition to carry a ‘Mind Probe’ feature in their leaflets preceding every event.

This feature, composed of the strangest, daftest and often most ridiculous questions plausible, is a great way to break up the formality of a music event and show the often more eccentric sides of the musical talent to those discovering them for the first time.

However, as the 21st Anniversary event ended up being so veritably large in line up, it was decided – with heavy hearts – to cut the mind probe from the leaflets lest it reach the page count of Gideon’s bible!

It thus became the responsibility of Cat on the Wall’s haphazard team of prized prats – Jordan (writer), Matthew (photographer), Kane (prized gent, tall person) and Ross (punk) to assemble some replacement interviews with a small selection of musicians performing over the course of the weekend. All on a space age, super modern, high definition telephonic device. (Jordan’s shit phone)

The result was wholly unprofessional, embarrassing, and often veering on sheer idiocy. And we think it’s pretty bloody funny.

Bella Morte ended up spending 20 minutes, Jeff Diehm took us into an open – and broken – lift, and Chameleons Vox told us about nuns.

Have a listen through our little playlist here – and remember. Unrehearsed, unpractised and completely out of the ordinary for all…

If you expect high quality, professional content…you’re in the wrong place.
