Fat White Family is a band like no other.
With album “Serfs Up” about to drop, I set out to secure an interview.
I slid into Lead Singer’s DMs and hopes were raised when I got a swift response. But as the days went by, it was clear I was being ghosted.
Domino Records must have them flat out with promo, but give me a break!
If only there was a way to speak face to face …
Then I saw an event online:
Insecure Men were playing Rock En Seine Festival on Saturday. I was there too, and despite getting a press pass, didn’t have an interview with them.
It was kind of a let down and made me feel like a bit of a loser. What was the point of ‘working’ the festival if I wasn’t talking to anyone good? I chose to spend the Saturday morning taking it out on Jared Leto and his band, who were slagged off to anyone who would listen.
SUDDENLY, my intel told me Saul and Ben were entering the festival and were heading for the portaloos!! When we sped-walked over to Ben and asked to talk, he said, “Yeah, sure.”
