Cuncrete - Studio Blog

1.     Introduce yourselves?

WE ARE THE GREAT WHITE MALES. WE ARE THE WORLD’S FINEST ANTI-VIRTUOSO DRAG KING PUNK BAND. WE ARE ARCHIBALD TACTFUL, JOHNNIE JOVE, JONTY (EARL OF TITWORTH) & LITTLE KEITH. WE ARE THE POLITICIAN, THE ARCHITECT, THE LANDLORD AND THE LANDED GENTRY. WE WRITE IN ALL CAPS. AND WE ARE DEADLY SERIOUS.

2.     How excited are you to be on tour?

TEN OUT OF TWELVE

3.     Tell us more about yourselves/ your music?

“The basslines are Corbusier-straight, and the drumbeat is as simple and iconic as the outline of Trellick Tower.” SAID ‘THE STAGE’, A SMALL ONLINE MAGAZINE WRITTEN FOR WOMEN LEFTIES QUEERS AND THEATRE TYPES.

OUR GUITARS HAVE STICKERS ON THEM TO TELL US WHERE TO PLAY. OUR LEAD SINGER IS RECOVERING FROM A FIFTEEN-YEAR PHOBIA OF SINGING. ALL OF OUR DRUM STICKS ARE BROKEN. CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF WE ARE ACTUALLY WOMEN. WE ARE LOUD AND RAW AND HAVING A VERY GOOD TIME.

4.     What can people expect when they come to see you?

SHARP SUITS. CEMENT. GREY PAPER AND GREY CARPET AND GREY GRAVEL. WIT AS DARK AS THE NIGHT. THAT UNCOMFORTABLE HOWL IN THE PIT OF YOUR STOMACH. A CEMENT MIXER. THE PATRIARCHY. A RINGING IN YOUR EARS. SONG. DANCE. POSTURING. FACIAL HAIR. A HISTORY LESSON. A POLITICAL STAND. A CONCRETE PHALLUS.

5.     Sum up the band (or the show) in 3 words!
