@TTM_Tweets Phil Campbell talks about Glasgow 2014, singles, new songs, tours and tour buses

We caught up with singer Phil Campbell of The Temperance Movement on the eve of their UK Tour. Phil was in fine form and didn’t shy away from sharing his opinion on matters which have been subject of much controversy over the past few weeks.

Our chat began by talking about living in his hometown, the city of Glasgow, and something which has touched the hearts of all Glaswegian’s recently. The impact hosting this years 20th Commonwealth Games is having on the city’s landscape and Phil expresses what most have felt about the future demolition of the Red Road flats.

Not only do The Temperance Movement kick-off their UK Tour today [21st April 2014], but they also release a new single ‘Take It Back’.

The decision to release the single is discussed as well as the Picture Disc release on vinyl of two Brit Pop tracks recorded at Abbey Road Studios in February – part of Record Store Day celebrations at the weekend.

The Temperance Movement have just completed a tour of mainland Europe and the feeling you get from listening to Phil is that they are very much looking forward to getting back in front of UK fans once again. 2013 was a big year for the group and by all accounts they are ready to push on in 2014; solidify their fanbase and treat new fans to their own brand of gutsy, no-nonsense rock ‘n’ roll.

It sounds as though we’ll be treated to a few new songs on this tour. Make sure you get out and see one of the most talked about UK rock bands in recent years.

Here’s the interview, which includes Phil’s take on the reliability of last year’s tour transportation. Enjoy.

Pontus Snibb - Wreck Of Blues-cover

INTERVIEW: @Bonafide’s Pontus Snibb talks to TCRS about ‘Wreck Of Blues’…

‘Wreck Of Blues’ is the latest solo album to be released by Bonafide’s Pontus Snibb. Recorded within three days with his father Håkan Nyberg on drums and taking care of business on the bass guitar is ex-Bonafide bass player and long-time friend, Micke Nilsson, the album has a very much stripped back and raw feel to it. Gentle and sometimes heavy nods towards blues alumni such as Peter Green, T-Bone Walker, Albert King can be heard.

On the day of its release, we spoke to Pontus Snibb who gave us, amongst other little snippets of information, a run down on how ‘Wreck Of Blues’ came about, how and where it was recorded and the blues guitarists that have influenced Pontus.

Here’s the interview:

You can download the album ‘Wreck Of Blues’ through iTunes here. Visit the official Pontus Snibb website

One of our most entertaining and fun shows to date. Playlist is here…

Without doubt, last night was one of the most entertaining and fun shows to date. As well as some old, near forgotten ‘Classics’, it’s great to see that the new music I’m introducing to you is getting such a good reaction.

You seem to especially like the track we played from Swiss band Progstone. I’ll be interviewing the band very soon. They’re very keen on coming over to tour the UK. Fingers crossed.

Anyway, thanks once again for tuning in to the show. I’m back behind the mic again next Thursday at 7pm www.theclassicrockshow.co.uk

In the meantime, here’s what we played out. If you like it, buy it. If the group is gigging near you, go see ‘em.

One last thing, do have a listen to the interviews we’ve done recently. John Wetton of Asia, Erik Norlander, The Brew, BlackWolf, Buffalo Summer, Scorpion Child, Heaven & Earth, Sandi Thom are all worth checking out.

Cheers!

@TheBrewUK’s Tim Smith talks about producer @TobyJepson and the making of ‘Control’

The Brew have just returned from a highly successful tour of mainland Europe when, for the first time, they included tracks from their critically acclaimed album ‘Control’ in their setlist.

The BrewWe managed to catch up with Tim Smith during some downtime for the band to discuss how the album was put together, producer Toby Jepson‘s approach to recording The Brew, ‘Control’ song titles, reaction to the introduction to their setlist of album tracks and also their upcoming tour of the UK and Ireland.

If crowd reaction alone was anything to go by, then The Brew are a band which you simply must go and see perform ‘live’. The UK tour starts in May.
