Jake James

Where are you from?
Clacton On Sea, Essex.

What do you do?
Lead singer in BREED.

Describe your style in three words?
Tramps Pay Day.

If you could make a record with anyone from history?
‪Jack White, he is an absolute genius!

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to and why?
‪Kasabian at T in the Park 2015, when 'Bumblebee' kicked off it was carnage! The line up the whole weekend was mental, Noely G, Libertines, Prodigy, Jamie T, the list goes on!‬

What British music icons inspire your sound today?
We've been told we sound like a ‪kasabian‬ with sabbaths riffs, which is probably the biggest compliment ever! We started out to be a heavier/meatier ‪kasabian‬. The start of Black Sabbath's 'War Pigs' gets everyone going doesn't it?

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Bowie, all day! We share the same birthday so I could open up with that to start the conversation. He was so ahead of his time, he's greatest hits album could be 100 tracks deep! Apparently, he always smelt proper nice as well.

Which British subculture means the most to you?
The Britpop era, I weren't old enough to experience it, but I can't get enough of hardly anything from the 90s, even the boy bands were quality!

If you could share the bill with any British band in history?
Oasis, no question, the after party man, we'd smash our set out in minutes just to rush to that! 'My Big Mouth' by Oasis proper gets me going as well man, it's just bang, right in your moosh!

What music did you listen to growing up?
We grew up on KISS, ACDC, ‪Aerosmith‬, ‪Van Halen‬ etc... I'm surprised I don't wear or that glittery Lycra gear to be fair, I got the barnet for it. But still now, when David Lee Roth's Yankee Rose' comes on, that's getting turned all the way up!
