The SchnickSchnack

What The ScnickSchnack teaches us is that one can never have too many bleeps or bloops in life. Squeaky dog toys, bubble machines and knock-off light sabres become high art in this two-piece's set: compelling, fun, delightfully unselfconscious. The SchnickSchnack lives all the joyousness of music-making and drags the audience, smiling and ecstatic, with them.

Bang On Team: Tell us a little about your band.
The SchnickSchnack: We are trying to build our own little kingdom. And music is just one part of it. We like pop music. We like melodies. We like poetry. We like humour. We like toys. And we like to put all these things together. Thats it.

BOT: Why did you start to make music?
The SchnickSchnack: Music is the best way to communicate. Everyone is listening to music and everyone likes it. So everybody should start playing in bands. Pop makes life bigger.

BOT: What’s been your best moment as a band so far?
The SchnickSchnack: Our wedding party.

BOT: Who are three bands everyone should listen to right now?
The SchnickSchnack: Animal Collective. Sophia Kennedy. Flower Companyz.

BOT: How do you prepare for a gig?
The SchnickSchnack: Sometimes we rehearse. Sometimes we don't.

BOT: What can people look forward to about your set?
The SchnickSchnack: Opposite of negative energy. We hope you'll all be smiling and dancing.

BOT: Finish the sentence. If I wasn’t making music I would…
The SchnickSchnack: a Farmer.
