60 Seconds With… Crooked Saint


Where would you like to be in five years?

The ’60s.

Do you have a pre-gig ritual? If so, what is it?

Hell yeah. I like to get a handful of people to grab me by the shoulders and perforate my eardrum by screaming, ‘Do you ever get nervous?’

If someone made a movie about your life, who would play you?

Denzel Washington. Actually, that is ridiculous. He is way too old.

If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be, and why?

A Milky Way, because it’s mostly just air.

What do you think a band has to do these days to succeed?

Insult a minority on Twitter? Get a reality TV show? Who knows, really.

What’s your favourite song, and why?

At the moment it is Honky Tonk Heroes by Waylon Jennings, because it took a lot to knock Jesus, Etc. by Wilco off its perch.

When’s the gig and with who?

Our single launch is at the Evelyn on Saturday July 7, with our buddies The Rumors and The Corsairs.
