Flight Brigade, Standing To Attention, An Interview Redux

Back in October 2015, Lauren Patel sat down with Hampshire-based band Flight Brigade for a chat about their roots, their music, multiple Glastonbury Festival sets and their forthcoming album release. Fast forward two years and their debut album Our Friends Our Enemies is complete and out and Flight Brigade are all lined up to bring their record to the stage of north London’s The Finsbury for the RockShot Mag-curated night of Lost In The Manor’s 31-night Blogtober Festival. In preparation, we revisit that 2015 sit-down with Miriam, Ollie, Dorry, Tom, Thomas, Neil and Jonny below. It’s been a great year for Hampshire septet...

Interview: Federal Charm, Generating Headlines.

Federal Charm are a four-piece blues-edged rock band from Stockport, Greater Manchester. Both their eponymous debut album released in 2013 and the sophomore Across The Divide have received strong critical acclaim, and the band are set to commence their first headline tour later this year. I caught up with the twin guitar pairing of Nick Bowden (who is also vocalist) and Paul Bowe ahead of the final night of the current tour with Australian rockers Tracer at The Talking Heads Southampton. Whilst the band most obviously occupy the Free/Zeppelin part of the musical Venn Diagram, their influences extend some...

Feature: Anoushka Lucas. Multi-Talented Exhibitionist.

Feature on Anoushka Lucas a Multi-Talented Exhibitionist. Nicola Greenbrook went underground to the 606 Club in Chelsea, London to meet singer-songwriter Anoushka Lucas, hear about her upcoming album and watch her heat up the stage.

Interview: Buck & Evans. Slow Train Coming.

Buck and Evans Interview. Slow Train Coming. Formed in the valley’s of South Wales, quartet Buck & Evans have been honing their own brand of ‘rock ‘n’ soul’ since forming for what was expected to be a one off gig in London’s Soho in 2013. The ‘Buck’ is Chris Buck, a guitarist of sublime talent who has been endorsed as a player by none other than Guns N’ Roses’ Slash. The ‘Evans’ is Sally Ann Evans, a pianist and vocalist of extraordinary power and soul. An obvious and somewhat lazy comparison is Janis Joplin, but it’s hard to make...

Interview: Flight Brigade. Standing To Attention.

Flight Brigade Interview. Standing To Attention! It’s been a great year for Hampshire septet Flight Brigade.  I met up with them at the aptly named Rainbow House on Portobello Road, designed by top Architect AB Rogers and featuring a rather crazy slide in the living room, before their recent gig at Notting Hill Arts Club where the band held their new EP Stealing Fire’s celebratory launch party. Formed in 2010, the alternative/indie collective comprises a mixture of family and childhood friends all with differing backgrounds and musical tastes.  Lead singer Ollie Baines is married to Miriam who supports her...
