Recently I have become a superfan. I know. Sad times. I cannot help it but I love Lonsdale Boys Club. It’s like a full-on infatuation mixed with a bit of reservation. That kind of reservation that you get when you realise they are going to break your heart at some point in the future because they are just too good to be true.
Anyway enough of my waffling, let’s get to the good stuff. Here’s a little insightful interview with singer Charlie about Lonsdale Boys Club. Charming.
If it wasn't for the band / music, what else would you be doing right now?
“Selling crack to the kids. Clubs, thugs ‘n’ drugs.”
What do you currently listen to / draw inspiration from?
“Lots of reggae and dancehall and garage old funk disco and soul. Some Frank Ocean right now!”
Favourite album / single of all time?
“‘The Harder They Come’ - OST Jimmy Cliff and various artists and ‘2001’ - Dr. Dre.”
Guilty pleasure music-wise?
“I listen to a lot of things one might consider guilty pleasures! Very very cheesy old skool garage and sweet vocal old disco n house n poppy dancehall. And of course the Bizkit!”
Describe your music in five words.
“Really really really really good.
Punchy, hooky, big, melodic n tough.”
