Following their confirmation in the first round of this year’s Meredith Music Festival this morning, M+N had a quick e-chat with Dave McCormack from comeback kings Custard, who are playing their first Meredith since 1997.
Have you guys played since that Q150 show?
Nope. I haven't even seen the rest of the band since walking off stage at Q150 last December. I think we better get together and run through some songs soon.
What have you been doing in the interim?
I've been out and about play gigs and promoting my new CD Little Murders.
Who's in the reformed band?
It’s the last Custard lineup: me, Matthew [Strong], Paul [Medew] and Glenn [Thompson]. This lineup recorded We Have The Technology and Loverama.
Will Meredith pave the way for a future tour?
Not really sure of any future plans. [It’s] one festival at a time for us I think.
Will we see a greatest hits set again? New songs?
Definitely the greatest hits set. We've got nothing new.
Anything special planned for Meredith's 20th?
I would like to bring along my 10-foot inflatable Santa, but I’m unsure if they’ll let me bring him on the plane.
Have you been to Meredith before?
I'm pretty sure Custard played Meredith in the late ’90s sometime [ed. it was 1997]. I don't remember much of it. I'm looking forward to checking out the vibe.
