DPC Interview Series

Give us a little background on the band and the members?  









K.C.
Royal has played in and around South
Africa and had some success in the local
scene. When moving back to Cape Town from JHB, he
struggled to find the right band so he took a left turn and decided to try
something new.


Rickabilly
has been doing his drumming thing for years, playing in cover bands and a few
original bands. He was brought up on a staple diet of rockabilly and 50s rock ‘n
roll. He, like K.C. was looking for something new when their paths crossed.


Double
Dave grew up on punk music, and played mean bass. After throwing him a double
bass his punk style combined with traditional upright playing really made him
stand out from other bassists.





How did you all meet?  





Through the power of the internet. After
searching for musicians an online ad was placed by K.C. and Rickabilly replied.
And so began the band. Double Dave was introduced to us by a friend who tweeted
us his details. The wonders of the internet!










"It sounds like traditional
rockabilly, with more psychobilly tongue in cheek-styled lyrics..."





So, what does your music sound like? 





 It sounds like traditional
rockabilly, with more psychobilly tongue in cheek-styled lyrics, with a dash of
southern flavour. So think if Elvis had a bit of a dirty mouth.


  

Who or what inspires your music?  





Psychobilly was the starting
point for K.C. and after years of loving psychobilly he found out that he
actually preferred rockabilly more, and eventually decided to give the style a
go.  “I would say Martin Rocka and Them
Tornados are my personal biggest influences,” says K.C. That’s right, local
influences more than international!





What do you guys do before a gig?  





Drink!





And after?  





Drink! (how rock ‘n roll). And then pack up gear
(how un -rock ‘n roll).





What do you guys do besides making music?  Any day jobs? 



Yip,
day jobs indeed.





Best memory since being a band?  





Being mentioned in Rolling
Stone magazine and playing the Rolling Stone Weekend.





Favourite venue or festival to play at?  





Ramfest. What a
blast!
 










The one festival or venue you really want to still play (local or
international)?
 





Would love to do more festivals locally, Splashy Fen,
Woodstock etc. We are yet to play Assembly, and that is somewhere we would love
to grace.





Tell us which local artist/s would you most likely collaborate with?  





There’s
a long list – Them Tornados, Th’ Damned Crows, Longtime Citizen, Crimson House
Blues. We have all done shows together and done jams at shows together, so a
collaboration is highly likely and has already been done plenty of times at
shows.










"We are fortunate
that we have loyal fans, and we seem to make new fans quite easily with the
music we play."




So, who are your fans? Any funny groupie stories?  





Groupies,
with our ugly mugs!?  We are fortunate
that we have loyal fans, and we seem to make new fans quite easily with the
music we play. Everyone seems to be able to relate to rockabilly, so our music
is easily likeable, even if our faces aren’t!





If someone wants to buy you a drink after a gig, what can they get you? 





Hunters
Dry and a Jagermeister! Make it a double!










"...one venue in an upmarket area saw the crowd wrestling in front
of us, climbing on top each other, throwing drinks at one another other..."





Which venue in Cape Town has the roughest
crowd?
 





I don’t want to mention the name of venue, as it was a
great place, but one venue in an upmarket area saw the crowd wrestling in front
of us, climbing on top each other, throwing drinks at one another other, trying
to grab our equipment while we played and just getting down and dirty. It was a
great party, but we did fear for our gear at one stage!





Plans for the rest of 2013?  





Releasing of our album!
Exciting times!








  

Where can we find your music?  





The album will be available
from select stores by June, but other than that you can find our tunes on
Facebook, Soundcloud, Youtube and the list goes on.





Famous last words? 





Dont be afraid, it's only rock ‘n roll!
