One Question Interviews: City of Satellites

Jarrod (City of Satellites)

SPB: Who is your favorite pre-1960s artist/band?

Jarrod: I guess when reflecting on my music collection there isn’t much from the ‘50s that makes it in there, to be honest. Having said that, I feel I have been influenced by many artists from that era (everyone has), perhaps without fully realising it. When thinking of the ‘50s I guess jazz legends Miles Davis and John Coltrane seem obvious choices, especially when considering that their music arguably influenced many great musicians. For me personally, I am a massive Michael Jackson fan and I remember reading that he listed two artists in particular that influenced his moves and sounds (both of which got their break in the ‘50s). The first is James Brown with his soul, funk mastery and the second is Fred Astaire, perhaps the best all round performer that ever lived. However, there is a tune from the 50s that creates a nostalgic moment for me whenever I hear it, always stops me dead in my tracks, m’ainly because it was featured in the classic cult movie, Stand By Me (which was based on a novel written by Stephen King, as I assume everyone is aware). The song is titled, “Lollipop” by The Chordettes, enjoy.
