GREY HAIRS – Lucky 7

“Often when we get obsessed by a song we’ll try and play it in order to somehow exorcise it – we did it in the past with Harry Nilsson and Roky Erickson – and we have a version of this that will see the light of day at some point.

THE G-O-D – Lucky 7

“Most of my time was spent on the hotel bed in a haze of hashish smoke, but one afternoon we managed to venture out to a nearby record store, where this splendid oddment of a dance tune by the American drummer/producer Hamilton Bohannon, was blaring through the shops speakers. It blew me away.”

SLOWCOACHES – Lucky 7

“Being from Long Eaton I feel like I’m allowed to be proud of these guys. It doesn’t really give me that right. I have a really short attention span but I literally couldn’t stop watching the first time I saw them. One of the most intense and engaging performances I’ve ever seen.”
