Coltana

Musician — London

Name
Blake Kenrick

Describe your style in three words?
Original, Interesting, Genuine.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
That's hard! Temple of the Dog recently as it was the last time I got to see Chris Cornell perform. Sepultura at Brixton Acadamy when I was 13! It was the first "Proper" Gig I went too, and the noise and the energy were intense. AC/DC at Wembley in 2009.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Freddie era Queen - Undoubtedly one of the best live bands ever with some of the best audience interaction. Standing on the side of the stage watching them rip it apart would have been awesome.

Thin Lizzy - Again another awesome live band. Pure energy and great music. 

Which Subcultures have influenced you?
BMX/Skate culture. Metal/rock/punk culture. They both represent community, energy and good times. They both have influenced each other in ways and watching lots of BMX videos over the years I discovered lots of amazing music.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Nikola Tesla. The man was a genius who literally changed the world. The ideas he had were, and still are groundbreaking, yet he got absolutely shafted for them. Would be good to hear what else he wanted to do.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
The Windmill - Brixton. Always a good vibe. Run by good people. The most eclectic live music.

Your greatest hero or heroine in music?
David Bowie - Unashamedly experimental, Musically and visually. No F*cks Given. 


Coltana are a Brixton based punk band described as Hugo White of The Maccabees as 'A uniquely individual and odd group, creating original music that defies any genre and creates its own'. Their latest single 'Bitter Sweet' is out now.

Catch Coltana live in London at the following upcoming dates:
4th September - The Unicorn, Camden
12th September - The Victoria, Walthamstow
21st September - Notting Hill Arts Club

The first track you played on repeat?
'Ghost Town' by The Specials.

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Ready Or Not' by The Fugees as that song was massive when I was in secondary school but then again so was garage, and I got into that so let's go with - Future Underground Nation - 'It's The Way'.

One record you would keep forever?
'Wish You Were Here' by Pink Floyd

A song lyric that has inspired you?
Ahh, that's hard. Davey Havok from AFI has some amazing lyrics. Probably a Lyric from "Symptom Of The Universe" by Black Sabbath.

Take my hand, my child of love, come step inside my tears
Swim the magic ocean I've been crying all these years
With our love we'll ride away into eternal skies
A symptom of the universe, a love that never dies

A song you wished you had written?
'Montagues and Capulets' - Prokofiev - Beautiful and dark!
Maybe 'Golden Brown' by The Stranglers.

Best song to turn up loud?
'Immigrant Song' by Led Zeppelin - Crank the Bass EQ as well!

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
'Chants Magnetiques - Magnetic Fields (part 2)' by Jean Michel Jarre

The song to get you straight on the dance floor?
'Tarantula' by Pendulum

Best song to end an all-nighter?
Judas Priest - 'Living after Midnight!'

Any new bands you are into at the moment?
Church of The Cosmic Skull's - New album 'Science Fiction' - Catchy pop rock with gospel harmonies wrapped in '70s attire!
Demonskill - Straight up thrash metal
The Mantis Opera - Experimental electro avant-garde rock!
Tokyo Taboo - Glammy pop punk
Gravey - In their words "Saucy Wavy Music Gravey"
