Okay, letโ€™s get into the Ten questions for Crimson Discord!

Crimson Discord is a global band, Camou comes from Melbourne, Australia and Wolf hails from the Malmรถ area in Sweden. Camou follows Australian Football, loves Google Sheets and travelling overseas when there is no pandemic on. Wolf likes his ice hockey, he's also into IT and programming, is a keen hiker and forest explorer in the lush Skรฅne County region. Both like the idea of healthy living, but Wolf is far better at actually exercising with a routine!

They have both been musically practicing for some time and in different styles of bands for many years. Camou started off in gospel and 50s rock, whilst Wolf has played in Punk and rock bands consistently. Camou was given guitar lessons at 10 years old which he promptly quit after a month before getting serious 10 years later, most of the time he was a bass player. Wolf has much experience as both as a part time and casual player [also usually bass] but also as a roadie on some European tours. Being the better bass player, Wolf pulls rank and Camou has wisely diversified into other areas. We met each other playing an online space game and only have met once in real life, where we spent a week together in 2019 and the results were two songs, Anya off our album Keeping It Real and the cover that just released, Eve of Destruction.

Musically we lean towards 70s and 80s rock of different types and flavours, but like everyone we are trying to adapt what we love to tell modern stories and use sounds that are appealing. Some artists we would say we borrow from might be Queen, Johnny Cougar, Blondie, The Cars, Crowded House, Alice Cooper, ABBA, AC/DC, Jet, Mรถtley Crรผe and Dave and the Dynamos.

Well our first experiences together came in 2008, two years later we released some music under another name. Fast forward 10 years and we reached out to other and decided to commit to and idea and do something concrete. Crimson Discord was officially born as an entity last year in November.

We would like our voices and stories to be heard, and new generations of music fans to enjoy styles that we enjoyed.

Wembley Station - this iconic venue has been the host of many famous concerts, the biggest one being perhaps Live Aid in '85. To be on the same stage as Freddie, Angus, Elton & Billy Joel, BTS... that would be unbelievable!

Howver this was embarrassing... at aged 17, swimming in a school relay race and having my shorts go down to my knees, whilst wearing thin grey underwear. Half the school gathered on the side of the whole thinking I was drowning, when in fact I was trying to swim one handed whilst trying to get my shorts back into a less revealing position.

In the universe, it would helping to produce and father my three children. In my mind, possibly completing my university degree in teaching, and in November it would be our song Rock It making the NAS top 20! [At least once!]
