    Interview: The Temper Trap
    9 November 2012 8:24 pm
    We hear from the band's support act for the NZ/Australia shows


    Australian band the Temper Trap are supporting Coldplay on the New Zealand/Australia tour which begins on Saturday night in Auckland. We dropped frontman Dougy Mandagi a line to find out more about them.



    Hi Dougy, how are you?
    Fantabulous.

    Are you looking forward to the shows with Coldplay?
    Very much so.

    For any Coldplay fans who haven't yet heard the Temper Trap, what do you sound like?
    Coldplay.

    [ame]www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN7HQrgakZU[/ame]

    You're more used to playing headline dates these days - will you approach the support slots any differently to a normal show?
    Yes, less ballads, keeping things punchy, direct, familiar and big.

    The second show is a hometown gig - presumably that should be a standout for you guys?
    It's always good to come home to where it all started. We're an Oz band and always will be no matter where we may base ourselves.

    Australasia is a big old place, how are you guys getting between the shows?
    My mom's station wagon that we used to drive for band practice.

    Please tell us one thing that Coldplay - or anyone - should do in each of Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane?
    New Zealand is kinda out of our element but apparently Mordor is quite menacing and hot this time of year.
    Melbourne: Cherry Bar on AC/DC Lane (that's right, AC/DC Lane!!); Chin Chin on Flinders Lane for an amazing Asian fusion dinner/cocktails. St. Kilda, Fitzroy (if you like watching hipsters being all hip and shit). The list goes on and on.
    Sydney, go to Shady Pines for drinks if you can find it. Bondi is a must (north side by the rocks is better) the neighbouring beaches like Bronti, Tama are quieter and more "local." Sydney harbor overlooking the opera house is the most beautiful harbor I've ever seen in my travels.
    Brisbane... No idea. Sorry. Don't swim in the canals. There's hungry bull sharks!

    What should the band expect from Australian crowds?
    Australian accents.

    Do you have any idea how you came to be on the tour?
    Well, I sincerely hope that it's because Coldplay like us.

    [ame]www.youtube.com/watch?v=iW0uYfq3VLU[/ame]

    Are you guys generally fans of Coldplay?
    Yup. I played the first 2 records to death and Fix You is one of those songs that I listen to and think, "why didn't I write that!!!?"

    Have you seen them live before?
    Ages ago at Rod Laver in Melbourne. This was before I even started the band.

    According to Last.fm, there is "medium similarity" between the Temper Trap and Coldplay. Does that sound reasonable?!
    Refer to question 3.

    Coldplay always have a cricket bat and ball in their dressing room. Australians are usually annoyingly good at cricket. Do you think you could take them in a mini-Ashes?
    We can take anyone on at any sport. Joseph our multi instrumentalist is particularly good at mixed martial arts. We're very competitive! It's all about winning, not having fun!

    What else have the Temper Trap got coming up in the next few months?
    Writing and more shows. The usual.

    Finally, what's your favourite Coldplay song?
    Fix You.

    [ame]www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BU-1ukQ3vo[/ame]

    Thanks very much!
    You're welcome very much.

    I didn’t say, though, that I wouldn’t put it in the blog…

    #42 reports on the soundcheck in Paradise (aka Auckland)


    We’ve been out for over a year now and in every country and every city we’ve visited, Chris has sung “This could be Paradise”. New Zealand though, gets my vote for it being closest to the truth. Of course we’ve arrived mid-spring, escaping a damp and chilly run into winter at home. Even so, it’s lush, it’s green and it genuinely is pretty damn wonderful.


    Click for large version

    I’ve been here a while already, staying with some old friends down on South Island. The band, however, have gone for the rather questionable approach of following the head-mashing 28 hour flight (and 12 hour time difference) by piling straight down to the stadium for a soundcheck the night before the first show.

    The general consensus among the crew is that one of two things could happen. They’ll either be completely wiped out and they’ll turn up, have a look and go straight to bed - or they’ll be somewhat on the tired and irritable side. What happens though, is way better. There’s a giggly, daft air to the soundcheck. They’re clearly in that weird underwater stage of jetlag where it’s impossible to take anything seriously.







    God Put A Smile gets a ridiculous, terrible pub-band heavy metal ending - complete with over the top fretwank nonsense from Mr Buckland. The C-stage dissolves into mangled lyrics and giggles as Phil Harvey and Anthony Martin (CM’s father) get the cricket gear out and blow out the jetlag cobwebs.







    As the C-stage is finished up, Chris pulls out a tune that was knocking around while they were putting Mylo together. It’s funny hearing it again - something that never made it outside the Beehive walls echoing around the open air on the other side of the planet. It definitely still sounds good to me. There’s talk of studios to fill in the days off - who knows what’ll happen…



    Soon, the sporting theme takes over and the soundcheck is abandoned. Will and Jonny head off to talk footy with Lighting Director Graham Feast and then the cricket becomes a full band and crew free for all.



    As starts to a tour leg go, I can’t remember a more pleasant one. It may not actually be Paradise, but I figure if we ever get there, it won’t be all that different.

    Not really shocked about it; a bunch of songs are probably still good enough for release and since they recorded and mixed a few of them already, there's no reason why not release it in time with comics' release.

    ^ I think aliens (from Mars ) will hear a massive LOL from our entire planet, really
    Keeper of: "If you never try, you'll never know just what you're worth"; The "Goodbye and goodnight" Chris says at the end of every concert; "And I'm up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope"; Chris speaking Italian; "As we soar walls every siren is a symphony and every tear's a waterfall"; "So you can hurt, hurt me bad, but still I'll raise the flag"; Chris's blue watch; Chris's colourful piano (2011);
    Coldplay @: HJF 09/06/11 - Nice 22/05/12.
