INTERVIEW (audio): Blackberry Smoke’s Brit Turner

‘Leave A Scar – Live’ a double album and DVD released this year, gave us a taste of what can be expected at a Blackberry Smoke gig. Their recent UK tour, saw them sell out venues with a greater capacity on those they’ve played before. With the backing of UK based record label that has on its roster the likes of Rival Sons and The Temperance Movement, the music media’s undiminished appetite and the band’s down-to-earth appeal with fans, things are heading in the right direction for the band.

I see many parallels between Blackberry Smoke’s continuing rise and that of Southern Rock bands such as Blackfoot and Molly Hatchet had when they came over to these shores in the late Seventies and early Eighties on the back of some terrific albums, plying their trade the length and breadth of the UK to the delight of rock fans.

Brit Turner BBSWith Blackberry Smoke, there seems a renewed interest for a southern-rock band that has also drawn upon life’s experiences when penning songs, making them easy to engage and connect with; looking forward to Blackberry Smoke’s new studio album.

We sat down with Blackberry Smoke’s drummer, Brit Turner, and heard what all of this has meant to the band. It’s evidently clear, when you listen to what Brit has to say, that this tour has cemented the relationship the band has with us Brits (no pun intended).

INTERVIEW (audio): Andrew Hunt of Buffalo Summer on the Pasty Smash!

treatmentFor those of us who have been to see The Treatment on their ‘Second Bite’ tour, you would have also seen the two support bands, Buffalo Summer and Massive, fill the venues with their own unique brand of rock.

buffalosummer1Buffalo Summer, who have not long been out of the recording studio (their second album is down and waiting to be mixed), have been hard at it since I last saw them on the Lords Of The Riff tour. Tours and support for Skid Row and Buckcherry have been amongst the highlights for the band in 2014.

We caught up with Andrew Hunt (Lead Vocal) at The Waterfront Studio in Norwich to discuss what the band’s been up to, how the current tour has been going with The Treatment and Aussie rockers Massive.

 

pasty smashOf course, we had to ask Andrew about the #PastySmash! The Facebook video can be viewed here.

INTERVIEW (audio): Matt and Dhani of The Treatment

If there was ever a band that mixed youthful exuberance with kiss-ass rock ‘n’ roll riffage, then The Treatment have certainly nailed it. With two albums well and truly under their belts, numerous tours, including big name support slots such as Aerosmith, Kiss, Thin Lizzy, Steel Panther, Alice Cooper and Motley Crue, they’ve watched, listened and learned from the very best…and boy, have they picked up on it all!

treatmentThe ‘Second Bite’ tour – promoting their stunning 2014 ‘Running With The Dogs’ album – is now drawing to a close. It’s been a tour which has seen this young band draw upon all their experiences; delivering unquestionably their most polished performances to date.

We sat down with Matt Jones (vocals) and Dhani Mansworth (drums) backstage at The Waterfront Studios in Norwich and talked about the album, their new ‘look’ and their latest video release ‘The Outlaw’.

You can listen to our interview here:
