Retriever say their biggest inspiration is the past

If you like fuzz-filled bass and punishing drumbeats then you might want to check out Newcastle garage band Retriever. We gave them eight chances to grab your attention.

Describe your sound in three words...

Simple but effective.

You'll like us if you listen to...

The Kills, The Horrors, The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Music is important because…

It encompasses everything that means anything.

To try us out listen to our song…

Lion. Listen on MySpace.

Our biggest inspiration is…

The past.

Our most popular venue is…

The Other Rooms.

You'll know we've made it when…

You see us looking happy (but we are with what we're doing now anyway!)

In 10 years time we want to be...

Still making music.
