Gasoline Thrill Talks of New Music and More!

Rock n' rollers GASOLINE THRILL have been around for a while now, releasing an EP, album, and couple of single's as well. The band even has some all new music in the works as well too. See what else the band has to say about themselves and the music that they make below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I formed the band in 2009 when I met Martha Lewis (guitar) . We soon recruited Monica Nixx on bass. Our first drummer was called Mags and we played a few gigs together. Mags left during the recording of our EP in 2010.  Dave guy joined during that time. When Monica Nixx left the UK in 2016 and Dave Guy in 2019, our friends Amir (from Black Sixteen) and Bish Bishop (from SuziToy) filled in on bass and drums. 

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We were originally called Catfight when we were an all-girl- band. Our EP ‘Never go back’ was released under that name. We then wanted to change our name to reflect the new line up. We were starting to hit the road quite a lot and we had that conversation about the price of petrol and how the American word Gasoline sounded great. Thrill came up to our mind when we tried to describe ourself at that time. We were and still are thrill seekers! 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? 

It all started in London. We used to all live quite central, Kentish town, Archway, Bethnal Green, Hampstead then Walthamstow and South London, Cricklewood. The music scene is vibrant in London but saturated too. There are too many options and the Londoner is spoiled which affects the myriads of bands who overplay this area. Although we played some amazing gigs with amazing crowds at The Unicorn, The Bar Fly, The Scala and Nambucca, The Birds’ Nest Personally, I have always enjoyed playing out of London much more especially up north when we went to Manchester and surrounding areas. 

Are there any local bands you could recommend?

So many to name … The Healthy Junkies are doing so much to keep the scene alive in London. They deserve to be checked out.

4. How would you describe your style?

Rock n’ roll with post grunge, post punk influences. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

1 EP: ‘Never go Back’ 

1 Album BURN + Studio updates (on YouTube) 

2 singles ‘Blind’ and ‘Once’

We don’t do the same thing twice. Our singles and music videos are different. We have really evolved and we are constantly evolving and we are not stuck in one genre. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we do! I just sent a new song I am happy with to the rest of the band to add their bits. Waiting for them to send more fantastic ideas to work from.  With Covid lockdowns. we had to change the way we work from jamming together to working online more! We live far apart now so we are keeping this way of working. You have to if you want to be productive. In a way, it is  great to be able to make music together that way. It gives you the freedom to be where you want to be and continue to be productive and compose new songs together. It works for me. 

 7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Sure, we will play some shows soon. We have amazing news coming soon. Just can tell now. Watch our space. Subscribe to our YouTube channel, follow us on Instagram and Facebook. We have something huge coming soon. You don’t want to miss it. 

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Write and release more songs, videos, play more shows and festivals and go with the flow. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, Shazam. We sold all our merch we had during the Burn tour. We need to make more. Now we only have our songs! We will have exciting merch when we tour next so check and follow us on Instagram to be the first to see the new merch.
