Check out our interview with musical storytellers – Planet For Sale…
For the unfortunate for you who don’t know who you are, would you mind introducing yourselves?
Planet For Sale: We are Planet For Sale, four misfits from the working-class regime with a dream.
We are also Rooz, Jim, Louis and Jamie.
In the effort of getting to know each other – if you could be a sandwich, what sandwich would you be?
Planet For Sale: This is a very serious question! Rooz would probably be something with a little bit of a caviar on the side. Louis would be beef on toast. Jim would be the best ham and cheese you could find in Sussex and Jamie will be a funky peanut butter and jelly.
Tell us about your latest release…
Planet For Sale: We did put a single called Old Father Time the other day and so far it’s been making everybody emotional. It’s about wrestling with time and how much of life passes you by while we race for everything. We believe it’s something that everybody can relate to and we want everyone to hear it.
Have you had much chance to play live lately?
Planet For Sale: We’ve only toured the world in our dreams, but we can honestly tell you that it was one of the best experiences of our lives and we look forward to doing it more often. Sleeping is very healthy for you! When you’re an unknown band and you’re dreaming of touring, the crowds are amazing and very supportive, in fact it was so unreal they seemed like holograms in a dream!
Have you got any crazy two stories you can share with the world?
Planet For Sale: We don’t wanna waste your time with our crazy stories, they never happened. No comment. Some of us did puke in the car on our way back from a London show, though. Jamie (who’s the designated driver) wasn’t pleased. All jokes aside we did perform in Sweden last year for ‘So Far Sound Gothenburg’ and it was fantastic.
If you could have one of your tracks featured in anything, what would it be?
Planet For Sale: It would be cool if one of our songs was in one of The Last of Us games. One of our moodier, darker ones.
Name one thing on your band bucket list…
Planet For Sale: To convince streaming and download services to give more to artists. That and a threesome, but not with each other. Sometimes a bad rehearsal is enough.
What would be your inspirational quotes to share with the world?
Planet For Sale: “Be real man, and get a real job you loser.” said by almost everyone. Apart from that, We like “Be good to yourself.” That’s from one of our songs.
What’s your favourite shark?
Planet For Sale: Brucy from Finding Nemo.
