@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.

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!

Hello!

In between the fantastic requests, I’ve got some really cool ‘Classics’ to play to you from the likes of The Dogs D’Amour, Aerosmith, Demon, Trust, Rainbow, Steve Earle, Ozzy Osbourne, P.O.D..

Also included in tonight’s playlist are some newly released tracks from Vardis, Tyla Gang, and something which lit my fuse that I picked out from one of the dozens of submissions we receive here on a almost daily basis, by a Swiss band called Progstone.

Join us from 7pm (BST) for three hours of the very best rock music. We’ll be running the ‘Roll Call’ at 9pm, so make sure you get on it via our Facebook group or on Twitter @classicrockshow to get a shout-out.
