'Koi Division' are a Californian band who describe themselves as “the only Fish Goth Joy Division parody cover band that matters”. After appearing on ‘The A.V. Club’ website a few days ago, the band have rapidly accumulated a shoal of new fans, myself included. I caught up with Ian Clownfish (vocals), Hook (bass, sea synth), Bernard Salmon (guitar) and Steve Moray (drums), for what I expect is their first overseas Q&A session!

A few months back, HUP was alerted to the rarest of occurences....a new local band had formed. Huzzahs and hurrahs thought we. The band called themselves Loudhailer, and they were playing a few gigs in town. I headed over to their Soundcloud for a listen and it was good. More demos dropped in the weeks that followed, and the songs grew on me, having that weird knack of sounding like quite a lot of bands you know and like, but not one in particular. Anyway, I decided to ask a few more questions to find out a little more about one of Hamilton's newest bands. Skip over to FEATURES to read more.
