· Who gave life to McNamara? When was their first show ? well, my brother and i started mcnamara in '95. since then, a lot of people were in the band. it took us painfully long to get a stable line up, a task we finally managed to handle like a year and a half ago. we played our real first show in jan 2000 with good glean fun in husum, germany.
writes the lyrics and music in McNamara ?
it's mainly me who writes both music and lyrics. some stuff was written by
sebastian (my brother), who plays drums. oh, and two more lyrics were written by
my friend marisa.
? we're trying
hard... we recorded stuff last summer. if anybody's interested, let me know!
else is in McNamara ?
Sebastian (drums), Joffrey (guitar), Wolle(bass), and we're dealing with a
slight singer problem at the moment, but it seems like we found someone new. on
our recordings, Andre sang. i play guitar, too.
was the best and worst show you've ever played ?
best: with shelter, as i like this band a lot; worst: somewhere in north germany
with a whole bunch of bands, where noone showed up and we lost a lot of money.
there anything you like in particular about beeing on stage?
the impression, that somebody likes our songs
you hate ? you
sweat a lot
· What are McNamara plans for the future ? Releases ? Tours? I don't know. we're writing new songs right now that I'd love to record as soon as possible provided that we have a new singer. plus, i'd love to play more shows. so it all depends on a new singer...
case you can think of a good closing statement feel free to tell the world:
give everybody a second chance! they all deserve it!
