Today we meet, The Wicked Ravens, they have a very cool combination of sounds ranging from jazz to blues to acid folk and a whole lot of creative originality which is a super bonus. I think that when you have band members that have different influences sometimes it can all come together and work beautifully , and that is the case with The Wicked Ravens , this is an excellent debut album well worth the time it will take you to give a listen..
for those unfamiliar with your bands history, can you tell us all how you all met up and decided to start a band ?
We are all in various bands on the colchester music scene, and we thought why the hell not, lets start another band so we did.
who would you list as your musical influence?.
So many influences, between us everything from Black Sabbath to Neil Young to Goat to Portishead, jazz,blues,funk,rock classical
whats the coolest thing that’s happened to you as a band since you started up?
People coming to our gigs,,a bands nothing without the support of fans
what are your hopes and dreams as a band for the next few years.
putting out another album more gigs, more radio play
what are some of your favorite albums from the past few years?
Goat and Bowie’s last album was fantastic
Do you see any real use for social media , or is it all just a pain in the ass to keep with?
it is a pain to keep up with and remembering the passwords to all the different sites is nuts sometimes, however its a great tool for promo and it gets you out there quicker than mail, but we still like the oldschool approach of posting cds and word of mouth
Do you pay attention to reviews or comments from people about your music or do you just turn that noise off.
its always good to listen to what people have to say, thats the whole point about music, its so abstract you never know whats round the corner, we just make music with no agenda and if someone likes it then thats cool and if they dont well, we wont lose sleep)
If you could tour anywhere in the world , where would you want to go.
two of us despise planes so the tour would have to be train, bus, boat, or dragon around europe
Can music save the mortal soul or is just a good backbeat to your life.
we got the music in us
Any last thoughts for your fans
