3rd: 'I would describe your music as being 60's music played by The Black Angels on acid. I am right'?
3rd: So Black Delta Movement, you're from Hull! What's the latest happenings there?
BDM: Since we received the City of Culture the buzz of the city has been great. We’ve got some ace festivals like Humber Street Sesh, Freedom Festival and Trinity Festival all giving bands a great platform, not to mention the music scene really picking up. Exciting times!
3rd: Could you describe the sound of the band in one sentence?
BDM: Heavy Garage Rock & Roll with psych tendencies.
3rd: You covered Kim Fowley's The Trip. Kim seems to be a great influence for the new generation with bands such as Foxygen and Ariel Pink. What do you like about him? He was absolutely mad!
BDM: Kim was a fantastic producer, when you look into his work it’s surprising when you see who he worked with and how highly regarded he was in the music industry. Arthur Lee saw Kim stood at a bus stop down Sunset Blvd as he was driving past so pulled over and said “Kim Fowley doesn’t get the bus”. He was truly a legend!
3rd: I've got to ask, what's your trip?
BDM: Anywhere with decent music and good people.
3rd: Guys, are you more Brian Jonestown Massacre or the Dandy Warhols?
BDM: I’m more BJM, a lot of their songs have sound tracked and spoken to me through a lot of moments in my life – not to mention one of my main influences when the BDM started up. I met Anton in Berlin and he’s a really intelligent guy, I really admire the way he works with music. He helped me out by giving me some advice when I had to take my Vox Ultrasonic to get serviced a couple of weeks ago.
3rd: You supported The Jesus And Mary Chain in Leeds. What did you think of their set? Did you get the chance to talk to them?
BDM: Their set was absolutely outstanding in Leeds, it blew us all away - so loud! We didn’t get chance to talk to them unfortunately, we didn’t want to bother them,. Alan McGee was really great with us though.
3rd; Oh great, you met Alan McGee! How was your time with the Creation legend?
BDM: Alan McGee has been great with us! He's been really, really supportive and has given us some really helpful advice and pointers. 'Band on the rise' were his words while he took a photo of us before our sound check at the JAMC show!
...we've got around 10 festivals booked in at the moment that we’re really excited for and then we’re working on a few tours for the end of the year. We’ll be planning to get recording again soon as well – we've got a few options on the table.
3rd: Thanks for your time, an easy one for the end, what's your desert island drink?
BDM: Old J spiced rum with coke, ice and lime
