Q+A: The All Seeing Hand

The All Seeing Hand

Holy wack un-insightful interview Hayden! What are you thinking? Well, with The All Seeing Hand currently touring our nation in support of their new album Mechatronics, I thought now a perfect time to ask the band some cute and quirky questions. If you want some real background, this interview is better.

I’ve never said this before and I hope it’s not completely askew, but David (Alphabethead), the turntable atmosphericist of the group, reminds me of a great big smiling puppy. Ben too, actually. He’s the band’s percussive backbone, and happy puppy or not, he drums like an alien has scrambled his DNA and replaced his arms with a dozen flailing tentacles. The throat-singer, Jonny, I don’t know so well, but I get the sense he’s an incredibly nice chap, and went to great lengths (and faraway places) to learn his craft. So here are the questions:
