What happens when you put a band of good ol’ boys never meaning no harm other then to Drink, Smoke & Play a mix of honky tonk Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gregg Allman and Motorhead (Rip Lemmy) sleazy southern style rock music? Well my friend you would’ve attended a Scattered Hamlet show @ the world famous Whisky A Go Go in the heart of Hollywood, Ca.
Scattered Hamlet’s inﬂuences range from southern rock to groove metal to heavy metal with the attitude of punk rock. With humble origins all across the US and a relentless touring schedule of 100+ shows all across America, the band makes no apologies for the equal love of Harley Davidson’s, honky tonk, beer drinking, Les Pauls, Marshalls, shotguns and classic American symbolism.
This was the last show of this tour that took them completely across the states where I witnessed these rock ‘n roll outlaws putting on a great show.
The guys will be heading back into the studio to finish the new album but they took the time to talk to me about life on the road, where they get their sound and how Jake always brings up the rear, but not in the weird way. To listen to what the Scattered Hamlet boys had to say about this and more, please click on the interview below.
Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
