Out Takes: The Presets
When you were young, what music videos inspired you and what band did you always wish you were in?
I was inspired by every Michael Jackson video that came out in the ’80s. Are you allowed to be in Geto Boys or Public Enemy or N.W.A.? I would have liked that, but somehow I don’t think it would have worked with a white kid from Australia.
What year in the past decade has influenced you the most?
1994, with all that big beat music like Josh Wink and Chemical Brothers. That was stuff that we really liked back then. The DJs were quite eclectic. They would play an old Run-DMC track and then Tricky and then Rage Against the Machine.
