Hotel Lux

Portsmouth

Wednesday 3rd May 2017

Name
Lewis

Where are you from?
Portsmouth.

Describe your style in three words:
Not that good.

How should your music be listened to?
Turn it up.

A British music icon that has inspired you?
Wilko Johnson. The man’s an absolute legend. As a pretty non-musical person I’ve never really been fascinated by musicianship, it’s always been lyricism for me but the way Wilko plays guitar is just something else. Seems like proper genuine bloke as well.

Which new British bands are you listening to at the moment?
Goat Girl, Baxter Dury, Sleaford Mods.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
I think recently the best gig I’ve seen was the Dead Pretties at Truck. I’d seen ‘em a few times before that, but that show was another level.

If you could make a record with anyone from history, who would it be?
Damon Albarn. I think that’d work, yeah.

A British icon that inspires you?
Alan Clarke, Dennis Skinner, Brian Clough.
