Name, where are you from?
Mike Murphy (frontman of The Wicked Whispers), Liverpool, UK.
What do you do?
Singer, songwriter and producer.
Describe your style in three words?
Open your mind.
How should your music be listened to?
As loud as possible.
What do you miss about home when you're on tour?
My wife and daughter.
What’s the best gig you’ve ever been too?
Oasis, Finsbury Park 2002. It was a bunch of us mates all travelling down to London and having a laugh that made it special. I remember them playing 'Columbia' and thinking how amazing that song actually was.
What British music icons inspire your sound today?
The Beatles, The Kinks, Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, The Small Faces, The Who, The Rolling Stones.
You can spend an hour with anyone from history - who would it be?
Peter Sellers. He was basically the funniest man alive in my book. We all need someone like that in our lives but to hear him be funny organically in conversation would be mind blowing. His humour was also sometimes inappropriate and ahead of its time, which gets me. The Goons back catalogue will have to do though.
The Wicked Whispers are a 5-peice rock n roll band from Liverpool. Their sound is rooted in the 1960s, big psychedelic vibes mixed with rhythm & blues and folk.
