GET TO KNOW THE BEDROOM HOUR!
What are your Full names and ages (you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to for ages)?
Stu Drummond, Rob Payne, Lewis Cosham, Mark Dudley and Andrew Copper. Don’t know anyone’s ages other than my own, and I’m not gonna just out myself 😉
What is your band’s Genre?
We make music to soundtrack the universes expansion into the unknown.
Give us a little bio of the band and you guys as individual.
We come from West London and we are probably the most normal bunch you could meet but when we come together as a group we create some of the best soundscapes known to humankind.
Where did you get the band name from?
When you join the band you have to undergo an initiation whereby you are forced to spend an hour in the room above our studio where they used to make ‘specialist’ movies, so it comes from that. Only joking, Rob had an idea to record an ep in his room and call it the bedroom hour, so we ripped it from there!
Who does what in the band?
We write as a band, usually writing our own parts but taking on ideas from one another. Stu is the vocalist, Lewis plays drums, Rob plays guitar, Mark plays keys and Andy plays bass.
Are You Signed?
No… not yet.
What instruments do you play?
See above! Lew and Andy also play guitar, Rob also plays bass.
How did the band come about?
Rob, Stu and Mark started the band when their respective bands split up through indifference. They realised they were the driving forces in their own bands and decided to pool their resources. After a few different rhythm sections they got lucky and found Lew and then they also ended up with Andy…;)
How did you guys meet?
Through music really. Most of our paths crossed through being in one band or another locally.
Who are your influences?
Everyone has different influences in this band! There is, however, one thing that we can all agree has had an influence on us all at one point or another – alcohol. Mainly dark rum. We like dark rum and coke. This may be a hint to anyone who comes to see us play…
What are your backgrounds whether it’s in music or not?
We all have normal, mundane day jobs. We don’t talk about them, even to each other. Our jobs don’t define or fulfil us as people!
How did music come in to your lives and when did you start doing it?
Music has always been a big part of all of our lives, both as fans and also as musicians. We’ve all been in bands prior to the bedroom hour and I think it’s that experience that makes this band so exciting to be a part of right now.
When will you be releasing material?
We’ve just released our album, Hinterland, so we’re now writing new songs. They sound great to me. Watch this space!
how do you get inspiration to write songs?
We spark off each other really well and that often gives us a kick to get a song going.
Where do you see the band in 2-5 years time?
Headlining Glastonbury after a successful world tour.
Where would your dream place be to perform?
Personally, I’d really like to do a tour abroad somewhere. We love meeting new people at our shows, so to take that to another country and different culture would be amazing.
If you could do collaboration with anyone who would it be?
It’d have to be someone who could put up with us! I think a female vocalist would be an interesting addition to the mix, maybe a little duet or something.
If you wasn’t doing music what would you’s be doing?
We would all be doing our day jobs, getting a beer in with our mates, going to gigs and wishing it was us playing.
Do you have a website, social media pages and music pages for your fans?
Yes, we have a website
We’re on Facebook
We’re on twitter
We have a shop
And we have a whole lotta fan run pages cropping up all over the world under the bedroom army banner.
Please drop us a line, we love engaging with people and are very proud to say we’ve made a lot of real friends through this band.
