Road To Bloodstock 2022 – The Kunts

It’s that time of year where we set out to interview as many of the Sophie, New Blood, and Jager bands as we can in the lead-up to one of the most anticipated festivals of the year, Bloodstock. Answering our questions here are The Kunts who play an unplugged set on the Jagermeister Stage on the Saturday night.

Simple things first – where are you guys from?

We’re from Basildon in Essex, home of Depeche Mode.

How long have you been playing together as a band?

Not quite 3 years, though about half of that was through lockdown. We’ve all known each other for a long while though and played in various bands together over the years.

Where does the name of the band come from?

I was doing a solo act called Kunt and the Gang for 15 years, so when I decided to start a punk band it seemed the obvious choice.

Describe your music. What makes you unique?

We’re in a time when it feels like everything’s been done before so we just tried to mix direct lyrics, radical rudeness and old school punk to get our point across. As it turned out no other band had had a hit single calling the Prime Minister a fucking cunt before.

What’s your live show like? Why are people going to watch you instead of another band?

We’re unplugged at Bloodstock. No one knows what it’ll be like because we’ve all had Covid so haven’t started rehearsing yet! I’d hope people will come and watch us because they know they will get an hour of shouting out swear words and a big singalong to “Prince Andrew is a Sweaty Nonce”.

Have you been to Bloodstock before? What did you think?

No never, but hearing people getting excited for us playing there has rubbed off on us – we’re proper looking forward to it.

When/how did you find out you’d been selected to play at Bloodstock?

I got a text message. I thought it was a wind-up at first.

What sort of setlist can we expect?

Three actual top 20 hits plus as many of my greatest minor internet hits as I can get the band to learn before August 13th.

Which other band do you most hope you’re not clashing with so you can see them play?

If I’m honest I’m not that metal so I’m still having a bit of trouble reading the logos.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’ve just this week finished the final part of my Boris Johnson trilogy called “Fuck Off Boris You Cunt” [More info on that one here – Mosh].

What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?

At a punk gig in Canterbury, this girl ripped off my fake cock so I snatched it back off her and threw it into the crowd. I spent the rest of the gig watching sweaty punk blokes deep throating it.

What drink do you throw back to get yourself fired up before going on stage?

These questions are way too rock and roll for me. I usually just sip a pint beforehand to take the edge off it, though you regularly get some cunt come up to you with a Jagerbomb just as you’re going onstage that you have to neck just to save face, then spend the rest of the gig slurring your words and missing all your cues.
