The Blog That Celebrates Itself interviews Anthroprophh

The Blog That Celebrates Itself asked Paul Allen from Anthroprophh some questions:

Q. When did Anthroprophh starts tell us about the history.
Anthroprophh started about 2010 after a quiet moment in The Heads. I Had been busy editing archive Heads material for the Vertigo Swill and Enten Eller cdr releases and wanted to create something on my own with the recording equipment obtained. Something primitive, tribal with the various old instruments that I picked up over the years. It expanded into a three piece with Gareth and Jess and we started playing and recording in 2012.

Q: Who are your influences? 
Intially it was german rock music from 1970s along with a bit of Hawkwind. It branched out a little with the three piece to include bands like Chrome and This Heat but with percussion playing a major part in live peformance

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time 
Can Tago Mago, 
Chrome Half Machine Lip Moves, 
This Heat first lp, 
Black Sabbath Sabotage 
and Debris Static Disposal. 
This list changes constantly. Too much choice

Q. How do you fell playing alive? 
Always nervous but since we have become a three piece it is a less daunting affair because we constantly practice and are well prepared. Also the dual drumming parts on stage seems to take the focus away from me with means the pressure is off for myself. It takes a while for any band to gel completely but I think we are getting there now...
