He’s best known as bassist for heavy metal heroes Iron Maiden, having forged the path for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal for the past *cough* 40 years but Steve Harris has been making waves of another kind recently with his side project British Lion. The debut album “British Lion” was released in 2012 and features Harris (on bass, obviously) alongside vocalist Richard Taylor, guitarists Graham Leslie and David Hawkins and drummer Simon Dawson. The ten track album is the product of several years of effort from Steve and his collaborators as they struggled to find time in between Iron Maiden tours and releases. Harris describes British Lion as ‘70s-influenced, British-sounding hard rock’ and it’s certainly a step away from the classic Iron Maiden sound we all know and love. With strong influences from The Who and UFO it has a more mainstream edge that drifts ever so slightly into the progressive side of British rock and roll. It’s certainly pleased fans and critics alike and we can definitely say it’s a regular on the Dorset Music office playlist. Having only managed to tour the album in the UK for a smattering of dates last year, the British Lion crew are back out on the road again next month, stomping through the country, giving you the chance to catch this stadium rock legend in a smaller venue. So naturally, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a bit of a chinwag with the man himself…

The album was written around your incredibly busy touring schedule, how long did it take you to finally get all the songs together and recorded? It took a few years to piece it all together but hopefully the next one will be a lot quicker! Is that a process you enjoyed, being able to take your time writing? Or would you rather work in a consistent block? I haven’t really worked that way before and it was just a case of necessity. If you get a result that you’re happy with then I suppose that’s what matters but in an ideal world I would prefer to do it in a block, but that is just not possible as Maiden always comes first of course! You’re a prolific songwriter, what was it like working with other musicians after so many years with Maiden? It was great but I’ve known the British Lion lads for a very long time so it felt totally natural.

How does it feel coming back to club-sized venues after all these years headlining festivals and arenas? I’ve always liked clubs and now I have the best of both worlds! With the beast that is Iron Maiden, plus British Lion, plus six kids to keep you busy, is there ever any chance for some downtime and what’s your favourite thing to do when you find some? I still love football and tennis. I also love photography, reading and watching movies. Football will always be my main favourite though. If you could only play one bass guitar for the rest of forever, which one would it be? The West Ham one of course that’s been my main bass for years and will continue to be. Words: Zan Lawther

Have you been working on any new British Lion stuff recently? We have a fair bit of new stuff and will play some new material on this upcoming UK tour. Was it frustrating not being able to tour the album fully due to your demanding schedule? Not really. It is what it is but maybe for the others as they always have to wait for me and my busy Maiden schedule! Are you glad to be back out on the road with the British Lion team next month? I’m really looking forward to it. We have a lot of fun anyway and it’s really nice for me to play small places and be so close to the fans.

STEVE HARRIS BRITISH LION


FEATURE

At less than three years old, Hunter and the Bear are still fledgling in comparison to some of their acoustic, Americana infused rock contemporaries but their star is rising almost as fast as they can write their songs. Striking a chord with none other than guitar god Eric Clapton they were lifted out of their local London scene and into an arena sized tour in 2014 and they haven’t looked back. Their compelling melody- driven rock won over Slowhand’s audiences and they were greeted with enthusiasm, respect and a clamouring for more that saw them sell hundreds of copies of their EP at the shows. And they worked hard to get there. And they’re still working hard. Currently writing new music and preparing for a busy festival-filled summer, followed by an autumnal adventure in the US we’re excited to check them out at Larmer Tree festival this month. We caught up with lead singer Will Irvine recently to find out exactly how they ended up on this wild ride and exactly why we should be climbing on board with them…

I heard Bob Harris play you guys on his Radio 2 show yesterday – that must have felt pretty awesome… Yeah, he played a few songs off our last EP on his show. He sort of turned up out of the blue, I think he saw us at a festival and he liked us, so he got us in to do something for his YouTube channel called Under the Apple Tree. We recently went up to his house and it was really cool and we gave him the EP then and he must have liked it. You went to Bob Harris’ HOUSE!?! That’s so cool! He’s got a cool house, lots of music memorabilia!

dorset MUSIC | JUly 2015

I have to ask about touring with Eric Clapton – how did you manage to land those shows and what was the whole experience like? Landing the shows was all down to our manager. She didn’t even tell us we were in the running or anything, she just called us on the day and said ‘are you sitting down? We’re going on tour with Eric Clapton’ and we were like SHIIIIIIT! Basically, I think a call was sent out within the industry to find something that would fit the bill. He wanted an up and coming British band and our manager put us forward for it and we got an email saying ‘Eric and the team have listened to your music and would love you to support’ and we were like oh my God so that was really special. And the shows themselves were so ridiculous. At the time, we hadn’t really played any big shows. We’d gone straight from small festival stages and the London circuit to these arenas and there’s nothing that can prepare you for that. It was a real baptism of fire but it was a great thing for us cos it really gave us the kick up the bum that we needed to get going and get as good as we could. Everything was put on fast forward and it’s the best thing that’s happened to us. Obviously the exposure was great and the shows were a great experience but actually behind the scenes, individually as musicians and together as a band, it really spurred us on to go forward and be much better than we were at the time. Are you mates with Slowhand now? It must be pretty inspiring to tour with someone that well regarded… Hahahah, definitely not mates. We met him, but I don’t have his phone number or anything! He was a big influence on us, all of us really. Maybe not so much Gareth cos he’s a drummer but particularly Jimmy being the lead guitarist, he’d grown up listening to Eric Clapton doing big solos and


to walk out on the stage before him is just so ridiculous. It was so funny seeing our little van sandwiched between his artic lorries, which was embarrassing and funny! You haven’t been together that long, tell us a bit about how you came together and what it felt like to get onto stages of that size within such a short space of time… So, me and Jimmy are old friends from home in Scotland and we basically went to uni together and started jamming together and playing a few songs and ended up playing the pub circuit in Newcastle. And at the time it was totally just for fun and we weren’t good at all. I started playing guitar at university, Jimmy started teaching me there so we were really, really, really fresh to the whole playing music thing. So when we finished we thought, why don’t we take a couple of weeks and see if we can come up with something original and we had that magic period of time when you graduate from university where no one expects you to go immediately into a job, so you’ve got this little window to try something out and we went up to the highlands for a couple of weeks and wrote some songs. And they weren’t great, we don’t use any of them anymore but it was enough to let us think we should give this a go. So we moved down and crashed on friend’s sofas in London and started ploughing promoters with emails, any way we could think of to get a show. Eventually someone gave us a little show and we kept getting invited back and word began to spread that we were worth having on a bill and we did that circuit for almost a year and learnt so much about playing live. We realised pretty quickly that we needed to build a band as we were getting completely blasted off the stage by people who had a drummer, for example haha so we found Gareth playing at Ronnie Scott’s and we really liked his style and got chatting. He was very quickly stolen from his other band! Then Chris came through an audition and was just so good that we were like, you’re so in! And we’d been together as a four for about a month when our manager told us we got the Eric Clapton dates and we were still getting used to playing with a drummer and a bassist and we didn’t really know each other that well yet and we only had about four months until the shows started so it was a hectic period of rehearsals all the time, practice, writing, anything we could possibly do to make it better. We basically did two years’ worth of work in four months and then we stepped up on the stage and looking back I feel like we did ourselves proud. It was a daunting prospect when we got told but we were definitely ready when it came around. You’re playing Reading & Leeds festivals this summer. Are you looking forward to that? It’s awesome. Festivals are so much fun. They’re the perfect place for a band like us to play because you’ve got an audience of people there that are waiting to hear good music and it’s so fun trying to win them over. Obviously the majority of them have no idea who we are when we walk out on stage so our job is to try and get them in that forty minutes or whatever we have, our job is to really engage with them and we love doing that. We’re all about live. A lot of bands these days are recording artists and the live thing is a second part of it but we’re very much a live band so

Reading & Leeds will be loads of fun, we’ve got a really good slot on a really good stage so very excited to check it out. Are you writing at the moment? Have you got any plans to release a full album anytime soon? Album plans are kind of on hold at the moment because we’re about to release a new EP. The single comes out on 26 May, it’s called ‘Burn it Up’ and the full EP comes out in July and that’s five tracks of songs that we really feel represent us well now. We’ve been through a lot of growth with bringing on the other two guys and the sound is altered because of that, so to be able to have something that we now fully feel is our sound is really nice for us, so we’re keen for people to be able to hear that. But as for an album, we want an album more than anything but we need the time to be right. We don’t want to do an album without the right momentum so we’re waiting for the right time. We’re doing so much writing that we could record about five albums right now but we’ve got so many things that are distracting us at the moment. We’re heading out to America for the first time in September, to do a festival in Nashville and then we’re touring supporting a band for four weeks and then ending up in New York for CMJ so that’ll be really fun. There’s definitely an undertone of an American/country sound to some of your tunes. Who are your biggest influences? I suppose that in the UK we might be classed as a bit country but I think that in the States, where country is such a big thing and that’s where its roots lie, I don’t think they would really consider us country at all but it’s nice that they’ve welcomed us into that world with the CMJ and the Nashville Americana festival. It’ll be a really interesting trip but a lot of our influences have come from that world, but a lot of them don’t. The weird thing is, individually we were all brought up on different styles of music; I really love old rock like Direstraits, Zeppelin, that kind of thing but Jimmy was brought up on soul and Stevie Wonder vibe funky stuff; Gareth is a massive jazz head and Chris is into his heavy rock, almost metal, so it’s a really interesting mix. It’s fun to play around with different styles when we go into rehearsals but we’re so keen to get out there. Because, without forgetting about the UK because we’ll always be here, but everyone is always saying that our sound has that American vibe to it so it’ll be interesting to see how they receive it. Why should we come check out your live show? In any live show that we do, we bring everything we’ve got and we always leave everything on the stage, which is probably why we look so horrendous and sweaty when we come off stage. We’ve got a lot of new material, the EP tracks and we’re really keen to see what people think of our new stuff. We’ll be experimenting with a few of the tracks and we like to do things like forget about the PA and turn everything off and do an acoustic number in the crowd or do something a bit rockier in an intimate setting so we’re always mixing in different things, so it should be a great show.

Black Water County

www.rock-regeneration.co.uk For the past couple of weeks most of my live music experiences have been in a field at local music festivals, there is nothing like listening to music in the countryside with a pint of cloudy cider to quench your thirst. A great weekend was spent at the Three Tuns in Brangore at the “County Fair Music Festival” watching a whole host of talented local artists included festival legends Pronghorn and Lady Winwood’s Maggot who both whipped up a frenzy of cider fuelled dancing. There were also plenty of new discoveries including The Wessex Pistols who inject some bluegrass and country into punk classics with hilariously entertaining results. There were also energetic performances from country punksters Matilda’s Scoundrels and Saturday night headliners Morgellons. Hen Fest in Wimborne was not only a fantastic small organic festival, it also raised thousands of pounds to go towards the fight against a very cruel disease called Cystic Fibrosis. It was started by a passionate Mother Gail Stuart who watched her daughter Kate suffer from this disease. Kate was one of the fortunate few who was able to have a liver transplant and now thankfully leads a near normal life. Gail and the rest of the Hennessy family feel the need to help other people after their experience with Kate and with the festival now in its fifth year they continue to raise much needed funds. The festival has a varied line up with a good mixture of electric and acoustic bands across the weekend. Skiffle orchestra Quinns Quinney crowded the stage with their line-up of 10 which included frontman Rob Farrington playing a watering can (Honestly I tell you no lies). They expertly reworked some great songs included Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire” which became “Me Tractor’s on Fire”. Another highlight were Black Water County who using fiddles, tin whistles and banjos coupled with more conventional instruments gave brilliant performance which enjoyed by a big crowd on the main stage. The whole festival had a great feel good factor about it and I came away being very uplifted by the music and the positive vibes created by everyone there. CHINNERS

previews Legendary 90’s hip hop collective

Taking their name from a powerful, mythical kung-fu sword that’s wielded by an invincible congregation of warriors, Wu-Tang Clan formed originally as a collective of 9 MC’s on a mission to bring hiphop into the mainstream and further their own individual careers by forming an alliance and establishing themselves as THE force in rap music. And it worked! Don’t miss your chance to catch them live. FOR FANS OF: NAS / PUBLIC ENEMY / GHOSTFACE KILLA

THE BLOCKHEADS

JUL 23 | DORCHESTER ARTS

WU-TANG CLAN

JUL 08 | O2 ACADEMY THIS is where the party is…

Starting out as the band behind Ian Dury, backing up his poetic lyrics, this is the band that brought you ‘Hit Me with your Rhythm Stick’, ‘What a Waste’ and ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ & more. Rarely off the road since the demise of Ian Dury in 2000, but now with Derek Hussey fronting the band, the Blockheads are still one of the most underrated British bands of all time, with a legion of fans of all ages. FOR FANS OF: ELVIS COSTELLO / THE JAM / BOOMTOWN RATS

Balls out rock n roll

Local hard rocking heroes Western Sand take the helm at the Anvil this month bringing their wailing guitars, stonking riffs and searing vocals with them. Having toured with the likes of Black Star Riders (Thin Lizzy) they’ve definitely learned from the masters so it’s well-crafted old skool rock n roll infused with a new lease on life. So why not bust out the big hair and fist pumps because it’s time to get RAWKED!

JUL 25 | CHAPLIN’S Dance music…..for goths!

A more motley collection of bad shirts, prison tattoos, greasy comb-overs, mullets and broken teeth you’d be hard pushed to find outside of a Dale Winton home video. It can only be Pronghorn. Legends of the local and festival circuit this band are a fun riot of raucous country music to make you move your feet. It’s cowpunk. Nuff said.

FOR FANS OF: 3 DAFT MONKEYS / LOS ALBERTOS / MAD DOG MCREA

PRETTY ADDICTED

With their messy and dark take on dance music, Pretty Addicted essentially provide an alternative style to dance music. Taking hard-hitting drums, sinister basslines, odd noises, crywank strings, breakbeats and an offensive, aggressive, powerful overtone to create the kind of sound that, not only have you not heard before, but that hits you right in the face like a ton of bricks!

previews JOHN OTWAY

AUG 02 | MR KYPS

Two hit wonder returns to Poole

He’s punk’s greatest rock n roll failure. Armed with his two ‘hits’ - 1977’s ‘Really Free’ and 2002’s ‘Bunsen Burner’ John Otway is on the road again with his self-deprecating solo show. Combining death defying acrobatics (beware of the stepladders) and an array of hilarious instruments (why not a theramin?) Otway never fails to entertain with his comedic spin on punk rock. FOR FANS OF: WILD WILLIE BARRATT / THE BLOCKHEADS

Hear them roar

He’s best known as bassist for heavy metal heroes Iron Maiden but he’s out on the road solo again with his British Lion outfit, stomping through the country giving you the chance to catch this stadium rock legend in a smaller venue! Expect hard rocking tunes with a classic 70’s prog twist, a lotta hair and some pretty nifty fretwork. FOR FANS OF: THE WHO / UFO / IRON MAIDEN

WE ARE SCIENTISTS

AUG 29 | OLD FIRE STATION Roxy music star returns

AUG 23 | MR KYPS Indie post-rockers cross the pond

Part post-punk revival, part indie rock and with a smattering of 80’s synth pop, We Are Scientists rose from humble beginnings in Brooklyn and have toured with everyone from Kings of Leon to REM. The band maintain an element of humour in everything they do whilst hitting fans with an assault of indie rock anthems. FOR FANS OF: MAXIMO PARK / ARTIC MONKEYS / EDITORS

Having impressed crowds at Glastonbury and coachella last year, Bryan Ferry returns with a smash hit show full of Roxy Music tunes and classic solo hits suchs as ‘Jealous Guy’, ‘Angel Eyes’ and ‘Love is the Drug’. Recent album ‘Avonmore’ was widely considered a high water mark in this star’s extensive career. FOR FANS OF: DAVID BOWIE / STEVE HARLEY / PETER GABRIEL

Texas’s finest pop punk export return in light of huge public demand! After their 2013 ‘farewell’, they’re calling this the “How About Another Round Tour”, celebrating more than two decades of great music and all their hits. No one can write a happy, bouncy tune quite like ‘em and we can’t wait to revisit all their noughties glory.

ones to watch

Krooked Nation are a 4 piece rock band formed in the heart of Bournemouth. After starting up in 2013, the band practiced with different musicians around the area and eventually settled on the current line-up and name by the start of 2014. After having a year playing shows, writing songs and experimenting with their sound, they released a 3 song demo EP earlier this year. Comfortable with the sound they want to portray, the band are currently writing and recording their first full length EP, due to be released later this year and we grabbed a few moments to ask them some questions after seeing them open for Milk Teeth at the Anvil last month…

What’s your name and what do you do in the band? I’m Dan, I do vocals I’m Louis, I play guitar I’m Dom, I play drums I’m Filipe, I play bass What made you first want to start playing music? Dan: I always had music around my house and have grown up with it. Louis: Guitar runs through my family, and i was always into guitar pop when i was younger. Dom: I was always inspired by Phil Collins and the Tarzan Soundtrack, so that just made me want to play drums! Filipe: I was inspired by Flea’s basslines and my brother plays bass, so i naturally wanted to learn myself

really. How did you choose your band name? We went through a few bands names, we just never found one that we all liked. We just wanted something that sounded cool and stood out from the rest really. Eventually we went with Crooked Nation, but we decided we would replace the C with a K, basically because we thought it looks a lot better. How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard you before? Well we’re all influenced by a wide variety of music, so we’ve kind of just merged everything we listen to into one! Its best described as modern rock music but with with heavier elements. We have sing along choruses, but also some darker sections, breakdowns and guitar solos, clean vocals but with a heavy back line behind it. Basically if you’re into rock music but also like darker heavier sections every now and again, we fit that bracket. What other bands are you listening to at the moment? Mallory Knox, Boston Manor, Gnarwolves, Rise Against, Beartooth What’s been your biggest achievement to date? Probably putting on our own headline show at The Anvil in Bournemouth. We hadn’t been together long and to pull that off was such an amazing feeling. We did everything ourselves, managing, promotion, sorting out supports, tickets, and got a lot of people down there. It was such a successful night of music and we learnt so much afterwards.

www.facebook.com/KrookedNationMusic

How did you get together? Louis and Dom were part of several musical projects in the Bournemouth area, and started their own band in 2013 as none of the other ones were taking it as seriously as we wanted. Over the next year we just looked for other members and eventually found Filipe and Dan from the local scene. Our love and admiration of the same music brought us together
