4. Do you regret something in your life?
Thomas: A lot of things. Too many to mention.
Jon: No, what's the point of regretting?
5. Why do we need to see Gazpacho live?
Thomas: Because it is a different take on the albums. At times, even better than the albums!
Assorted things to know:
1. What has been the biggest moment of your career thus far?
Thomas: The release of Missa Atropos and the deal with K-Scope.
Jon: Biggest as in most memorable - First support slot for marillion at butlins. First time in front of a large audience.
2. Where will Gazpacho be in 10 years?
Thomas: Hopefully carrying on. At least thats the plan. We continue until we have made the perfect album.
Jon: Writing albums and/or film music. I am guessing less touring.
3. For people who never heard of you, how would you describe the tunes Gazpacho makes?
Thomas: Moody and dreamlike music with emphasis on melody.
Jon: Storytelling through music with emphasis on moods.
4. Are you pleased with the response on Missa Atropos?
Thomas: Extremely pleased with the reviews!
Jon: I am seeing that many people are enjoying it. It takes time to get into, and the fans seem to both understand and appreciate that.
5. Ever considered to make an solo album?
Thomas: Maybe one day but time does not allow for now.
Jon: Before every album comes out.. :-) When certain sections that I believe should have been on the album are dropped (we just have too much good material!:-) ).
6. How Rock & Roll is Gazpacho?
Thomas: I wouldn't call it rock and roll at all. Its more like classical music with teeth.
Jon: Not at all, although a lot 'rougher' at gigs.
