Looten Duke, another Portsmouth band, have been gigging since 2013. Since they got together they’ve released their debut single and video called (There’s No Way I Could) Lose My Mind. They offer up a blues/rock sound and have been on a mission to get it out to as many people as possible by hitting the pubs and local venues.
We kept missing each other at Victorious but we finally managed to catch up over email. Joshua Elkington chose hos fiva random numbers and took on our question cards.
The London-based quartet Josh Flowers and the Wild is a folk rock outfit that took to the Real Ale Stage at Victorious. They have a lot of influences that they channel through their music and their debut EP, Young Bones, is available for download now and it consists of five songs that sum up the band and their sound.
We caught up with frontman Josh Flowers and cellist Squiff Wordsworth outside the Real Ale tent and they’re more than happy to discuss Mastermind as well as the most famous people they’ve met in the past. (more…)
Imperial Mammoth are an American band who have just made their debut appearance in the UK. Their performance on the Nevada Acoustic Stage at Victorious was one of their first over here. They decided to go for a stripped back show as they were put on the acoustic stage. The group consists of Leonard Jackson and Laura Jane Scott, and they are two of the loveliest people we’ve met.
They were genuinely happy for a chat and seemed up for all the questions. They’re still playing around the UK so fingers crossed they’ll receive the same reception that they had at Victorious while they’re here. (more…)
