Dracula Legs have only been around for a year and a half yet this band have already been kicking up a storm. Their monster breed of rockabilly blues has been perking up ears at tastemakers such as XFM and BBC 6music, and they recently played kickass London venue The Old Blue Last supporting Big Sister.
Hi there, how are you and what are you up to today?
We played a show in Paris for Nuit Boréale. Basically, Paris has an enormous music festival for one night. We played the Canadian stage and the crowd was shoulder to shoulder and as far as the eye could see. They danced HARD!
Everyone who’s ever been in a band knows you get some shows that are like a rehearsal. Nobody there. No money. No beer. You do too many of those and you start to question your life choices…
A guy that wishes he was a musician.
I think it’s sad that people like Gene Simmons have lost touch with music. I have never been more excited about music than I am today! I’m not sure what he meant by “rock is finally dead” but I wish I could get him to buy me a beer so I could convince him otherwise.
The A side is called ‘Sand to the Beach’ which is about living in a subculture that’s killing you. And the B side is called ‘Death of Age’ which is about a woman who kills a man. But it’s ok – he deserved it.
Dracula Legs next play The Macbeth, Hoxton on Wednesday October 8th. See you there!
