Describe your style in three words?
Crisp. Clean. Classic.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Cage The Elephant at the Bristol Bierkeller. The whole room went off when they opened with 'In One Ear'. The energy Matt Shultz brings on stage with him is contagious.

Which Subcultures have influenced you?
There’s influences from too many separate places to pinpoint exactly which ones have influenced me. I’m sort of an amalgamation of a load of different aspects of different subcultures which is cool. I tend to not think about what influences me directly too much and just go with it.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
For me it’d have to be us, The Stooges and Rage Against The Machine.
That show would be absolute carnage and I’d love every second of it. Imagine hearing 'Gimme Danger' and 'Know Your Enemy' live while both bands were at their peak?

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I guess I’d spend an hour with Keith Moon because that’d probably be the most fun hour I’d ever have in my life.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
I’d be lying if I said anything other than Club Quattro in Tokyo. The entire time we spent out there we felt like we were in another world.


Still all aged under, Pretty Vicious have now found their footing in the music industry and have unlocked the potential of how powerful their indie rock’n’roll truly is. Pretty Vicious will release their debut album in early 2019.
