Ahead of Dust Bowl Jokies’ upcoming UK tour, we caught up with the band’s singer Alexx to ask him a few questions. Check them out below…
You’ve recently released your new double single The Wicked///Blood, Sweat & Perfume – could you tell me about the writing and recording process of it?
Yeah, we wanted to have an EP released this spring, so things went out as planned. We were very careful with the songwriting. We took our time and wanted to ensure that we outdid our previous releases. We went for the studio in January and with help from the excellent producer, Martin Eriksson (Max Music Scandinavia), we got the sound and the feeling that we wanted.
Were there any tracks that were more of a challenge to complete than others?
No, I think we were very well rehearsed and pretty clear with what we wanted to do before we started the recording process.
Which track is your favourite of the two?
I gotta say The Wicked, because of the depth in the lyrics and the heavy bluesy guitars.
You’re about to start your UK tour – how would you describe your shows to someone who hasn’t seen you live yet?
We are always giving it all. People have to feel the dust bowl when they see us. The stage is our world and the crowd will be sucked into it…that’s what it’s all about!
What are you most looking forward to about touring the UK?
Spreading the art of rock n roll. The actual hours on stage!
If you could play a show anywhere, where would you choose?
What would you say the best show you’ve played has been?
Our debut album release party was a great night.
And perhaps the strangest or weirdest?
Hahaha, the weirdest show we ever played is a tractor repair shop…We were paid well and had free booze though!
And finally – if Dust Bowl Jokies could put their name to a product, what would it be?
Dust Bowl Jokies will be touring the UK shortly. You can find out more details here.
