60 seconds with - Thomas Green (Regresser) / by Kian West


I FIRST MET THOMAS A FEW MONTHS AGO AT THE FIRST NEWCASTLE MIRAGE LAUNCH, WHEN WE KICKED OFF ISSUE 3 WITH A PARTY AT STEEL CITY COLLECTIVE GALLERY. SINCE THEN I HAVE COME TO KNOW MANY OF THOMAS' TALENTS WITH CLARITY STUDIOS, HIS PASSION FOR MUSIC AND THE BAND HE IS A PART OF - REGRESSER. How would you describe the music that Régresser makes?1903109_742285755790454_1464769832_n Honest, confronting, passionate and real. I love it, as I was a fan before I joined.

What are you working on at the moment? With régresser, another recording I believe, to compliment the free EP we just released on 1/1/14. Personally, a lot of work with Amos Wellings at Clarity Studios, recording, mixing, mastering etc.

Where is your next event? 31st of January at The Small Ballroom, launching our EP with Snakes Get Bad Press. We’ll have an EP tour to follow in March/April.

When is the next release? It has to be recorded first, and we only just released our debut! That debut EP took time to get it up to standard, who knows how long until we’re all happy with the next material.

Who is your biggest influence/s? Depends on what they are influencing in my life. Currently, the members of régresser are influencing my listening, while the creative ethos of Coltrane and somewhat Davis is directing my playing.

If you could play anywhere where would it be? A beach show or Blue Note NYC. 1964257_742285965790433_1373411166_nThomas Green plays saxophone in Newcastle six-piece régresser. They released their debut EP for free download on the 1/1/14, available at: regresser.bandcamp.com
