Why this name?
Its always difficult to choose a name for a band, you have to live with it for years, so we thought if we picked a name of an Irish town it might stand a chance of surviving the test of time without becoming embarrassing. 4 years on and Klonakilty is still ok.
Do you play live?
Yes we’ve played about 2 gigs per week for 4 years and we love it. we play mainly in southern Germany and Switzerland, although we will play anywhere. we’ve played in Spain, Portugal, France, England.
A special moment was the ZDF a big music festival in Freiburg Germany, nobody knew of us and we went down so well they wouldn’t let us go, that was special.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gives bands like us a good chance to share our music and get it heard. I hate what big corporations have done with music, its turned from a serious artform into a joke. Internet has the power to put music back on the right track were it belongs, away from big business, and people who only think about dollars and shareholders.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes (ha ha)
So many influences from totally different kinds of music hendrix, Joni mitchel, King Crimson, frank sanatra, Dylan, Show of hands, loads of um….
