Interview: Quickfire with The Greasy Slicks

The Greasy Slicks

Mixing blues and rock into a pretty awesome sound, The Greasy Slicks‘ new EP, ‘Fool Me Twice’ is out now. If you didn’t know much about this British trio before then check this quickfire out…

How did you meet?

We met when we were all studying at university together. Each of us were playing in different bands and for other artists but were aware of each other and bonded over our similar music tastes. It started off as a laugh and just jamming around riffs but we did our first gig and after that decided that we were going to give it a punt and see what happens.

Who do you idolise musically?

Collectively we’re very inspired by music from the 60s and 70s such as Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Free as any rock band should be as well as more contemporary blues bands such as The Hoax. Bands who inspire us at the moment musically are The Temperance Movement and Rival Sons. We got to The Temperance Movement last month and they really put on a fantastic show.

Who is your guilty pleasure musically?

You can’t beat a 80s ballad. Bonnie Tyler, Tina Turner, Cyndi Lauper. Nothing guilty there!

Who would be your dream collaboration be with?

A band that consists of Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Bonham, Aretha Franklin and Jaco Pastorious and then get them all to swap instruments just for shits and giggles.

What have you got planned for the rest of the year?

We’re in the middle of finishing up our album, which is due to be out later this year and then we’re just going to tour the shit out of it. The best thing about being in this band is the live shows and the touring. We get to make a racket, break a sweat and meet some absolute nutters on the way!
