Bobbie Peru

When/How did the project begin?

I believe Bobbie Peru began as a solo project of Bert (full name Robert Genovese) after his then-band Adom split up. He recorded an acoustic demo EP and from that EP he recruited a full electric band with the original Peru lineup..

What song of yours is the one you like the most?

The ones I like playing most are “mongering the masses” and “conduit”. But we’re writing new ones all the time!

How do you write your music?

Bert usually comes to rehearsal with ideas, then we mess about with them and come up with new ideas. We try to write music that we like and other people will like too..

What influences do you have?

Where do you begin with influences?
They could be anything. I think all 3 band members like a lot of different kinds of music. I found out Chris (Baker, bass)’s favourite band is Fridge. Bert tends to listen to American roots-type stuff. I’m a compete music junkie in general and listen to it as much and as often as possible.

What´s the craziest experience you have had with your project?

Nothing batshit crazy so far but it’s really early days.. We did have the pleasure to experience a weird drunk stage-invader who decided he’d run towards me as soon as we started the second song and ended up tripping over and unplugging the bass from the bass amp before landing on the floor next to us. Great job!

What plans do you have next?

We’re doing out first recordings with this lineup in September! Then releasing it somehow.

musicsoundrocks2 - copiaMention something you don´t like about your project.

We haven’t booked a world tour yet.

Mention the biggest sacrifice you made for your project.

We sacrificed our last bass player to Valhalla to appease the gods.

What band, music project or soloist from your city do you like?

There’s always good stuff happening in Manchester. We played with Ten Mouth Electron at out last gig which we asked them to do because they’re great and they kindly agreed to do so. Hopefully happen again soon..

If your project was a car, what model would it be?
– Some sort of weird hybrid muscle car. A US, British, Welsh hybrid.

– Ben (drums). I’m at work! Meant to be working.
