We introduce you to Below The Neck and ask them a few question ahead of their gig at Girders in May.

Tell us about you?

We are Below The Neck, a hardcore band from Inverness. 

We are;

Thomas – Vocals

Finnbar – Drums

Johnny – Bass

Conor – Guitar

Rory – Guitar

Below The Neck started through a mutual love of hardcore music, and through wanting to bring something new to the music scene in Inverness.

What’s your music about ? 

Our music is about getting through things and making it to something better. The majority of our songs are based on personal experiences,  and if it provokes real emotion from a listen, then all the better! Other times, it’s just about making music to jump about and have a mosh to! 

What are your first three songs on your set-list? 

Early Grave, Flashing Lights and Waste of Life. These three tracks span our sound and give the audience a taste of what’s in store for the rest of the set. 

If you were able to steal one song from any act and claim it for yourself, which one would it be? 

We’ll never agree on one, so here is each of ours!

Thomas – Stranger, by Counterparts

Finn – Bouquet, by Counterparts

Rory – No Roses No Skies, by Have Heart

Conor – End Eternal, by Vein

Johnny – False Idols Fall, by Comeback Kid

What’s next? 

Next for us is Girders, and we have a few other exciting things coming later this year, but we’ll keep those under wraps for now!

Where can we catch you?

Next up we play Girders, on the 11th May, alongside so many other incredible bands.  Then we have ForresFest on the 7th June, alongside some good pals and again, amazing bands.

Anything else? 

We’re all about helping to create a scene based on inclusion and togetherness, not about competing with fellow artists. We aim to make the music that we enjoy, and we’ve been pretty stoked to see so many other people enjoy it too!

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
