DJ Interviews: Specky Cult

 Hey there all here's my interview with Specky Cult

You probably get a thousand of these a week and everyone of them is the next big thing.

To be fair we weren’t even sure about releasing the tunes on an album in this form.

Let me explain, Specky Cult aren’t a real band, it’s the fictional band from the musical we wrote. After all what is a “real “band anyway.

Yup, it’s meta or pompous you chose.

Its 4 people going down to London to do their big break gig and what goes wrong and then right and then… well that would be spoilers.

We are recording actors playing the parts and we are then inserting the songs to create a pod cast of the show. We are creating two, both an hour long.

We intend to release these recordings as podcasts and as cd’s once they are complete.

This will hopefully be an introduction to our project. We can then develop this into a live stage show or as someone was recently helping us with, make them in to 4 half hour tv shows.

The real reason we are releasing the music first is in truth a covid related desire to get out of the house and do something creative as soon as possible.

We hope you like the music, it will make more sense in context with the show.

We can send you the full pod cast show when its finished as well if you like.


We hope this has pricked your interest to either want to know more, to interview us so we can elaborate on our crazy plans or to want to review the album or just listen to songs and judge yourself.


SPECKY CULT will return in “SPECKY CULT must die”

How'd you get started in music?

I've played guitar since I was about 12, I've been in a million Bands. Me and Andy Mc have been in Bands for over 20 years off and one. Back in the day we played with the stranglers in London which I documented which became the play.

Who are your inspirations or influences?

I learned to play guitar along to Stiff little fingers , the damned,husker du and then progressed in to rock music then on to anybody who meant what they played.

What advice would you offer aspiring performers?

Keep at it and enjoy it , dont take it serious and remember every one started somewhere.

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

We're not a proper band , we play the characters from the band specky cult, from the musical, its fun to pretend to be someone else and write songs from that point of view. Any new gigs or albums in the futureThe album, comes out this month, This then should be included in the pod cast of the actual play. We're working on the second album now for the play specky cult must die.
