Interview with Zakk Taylor of A Jokers Rage21st May 2019 0 By Princess Linzi
So we see you have released your latest album ‘The Rain Dance’ on pre order. How did you find the recording & writing for this?
The writing process was pretty standard for us. We took our time and let it happen naturally but also explored past the boundaries of our comfort zone. Each song was very much ‘the mood of the day’ as apposed to any strategy.
The recording process was quick and methodical as all the creativeness and experimental work was done in our own studio before hand.
Almost every show we play the most common compliment or feedback we get is that people who don’t normally dance or haven’t danced in a long time were dancing to our show. “We just can’t help ourselves!” is a common statement from fans of all ages and genders.
We just connected the dots to how people come to our shows and all dance together for a bloody good time!
It’s a significant event for us as we had to fight pretty hard to bet on the line up the first time round and once we did there was just an amazing chemistry between the audience and ourselves from the get go. We were highly praised for our efforts and then summoned back the following year as a bigger attraction. We’ve blown various festivals away and filled in for other bands and even headliners last minute doing such a good job that they promise us a spotlight the following year and so many just fail to live up to their promises and gratitude. SOS festival have always followed through in that respect and it makes the hard work feel more worth while for us.
Creating something out of nothing that other people cherish.
If you were given a column in a music magazine called ‘Cooking With Rockstars’ what would your signature dish be?
