We asked The Mispers to name their top 12 favourite songs. They kindly did, and so we have made a playlist from it. If you hadn’t twigged, it’s above this text.
The Mispers are quickly developing a reputation as one of London’s wilder bands. Their shows are as much about having a party as anything else, as this attitude seems to run through their music. They play an energetic style of folk gypsy rock. There is a video of theirs at the bottom of the page, so you can make your own mind up.
We asked them a few questions about nights out, What their name means (interesting answer), and who they’d like to be stuck on a remote island with.
Indeed the mood is chipper in Camp Mispers at the moment. We're currently in the middle of a UK tour supporting Saint Raymond. Next stop Birmingham.
The 4 track bundle is a little look into The Mispers' 2013. A year fuelled by sell out shows in London. Featuring the lead track brother which was tipped as Zane Lowe's 'next hype' on Radio 1.
That's a scary period for everyone involved. Usually it doesn't come to it but I suppose alternative rock is a term we're all learning to live with.
Bombay Bicycle Club - Luna
I'm still Jenny from the block.
Jack followed Joey out on a drunken punt after being fired from series of shit jobs having met in Camden. The time was mostly spent writing bad songs refusing to get jobs. Being extremely broke was a running theme. Busked our way round the country and found solace in a lovely lady's garage for 6 weeks.
Typically there's a few natural born show offs in the band. But I guess we believe it’s important to really put on a show for the crowd. The idea that someone can come away from a show genuinely feeling excited, for reasons that backing tracks and strobe lights can't provide.
Misper is a police term - when someone has been reported missing for a period of 48 hours they're placed on whats known as the mispers list. Standing for missing person. Deep right?
