Calliope. Posted June 1, 2010 Share Posted June 1, 2010 Muse were featured a couple of times in the June Issue of Triple J's Jmag. Once as a band voted with having some of the best updates via twitter. Muse made it to 5 in the top 20 bands which formed in high school, beaten by The Beatles, U2, Radiohead and Silverchair. The trio of Englishmen now known as Muse began in their mid-teens at Teignmouth Community College in Devon. Dom Howard gave Matt Bellamy an audition to try out for his band which included Chris Wolstenholme. When he joined as their guitarist/keyboardist, the trio searched futiely for a suitable vocalist before Matt stepped up to the plate. One original name was Rocket Baby Dolls (unbelieveable dull footage of some band exists online-supposedly them). In 1994, they won a local battle of the bands, much to their surprise. The three decided to forget about uni, quit their jobs, changed their name to Muse and moved away from Teignmouth. Matt Bellamy was also one of the results of the "Which Lead Singer Are You?" Quiz, along with Lily Allen, Karen O, John Butler and Dizzee Rascal. 1) It's breakfast, what are you having?Matt's option: It's all about music, this question is ridiculous, not answering it. 2) In your spare time you like to... Matt's option: Go down the pub and talk shit with the guys 3) Your personal style could be described as..... Matt's option: I just walk around in jeans and a t-shirt, for special occasions I wear a button-down shirt 4) What are your songs about? Matt's option: You're not sure, but they're pretty deep 5) ZOMG! All your friends are talking about you. Why? Matt's option: You must've been talking about international conspiracies again and they're a bit worrried about you. 6) How do you get about? Matt's option: A nice car. Nothing ridiculous, but it's European. Personally, I dont think his personal style is quite correct. I think they forgot about the demon crow jacket, the grandma coat and all of Matt's other wonderfully outrageous attire! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
