Canadian rock band CRASH TEST DUMMIES will be visiting South Africa in February 2018. The tour will be led by Brad Roberts, lead singer and songwriter for the band, and fans will be able to enjoy a fun-filled day-time picnic in both Cape Town and Pretoria, while jamming to the performance of this extraordinary band.
One of the accompanying bands on the tour is CT based band, Bed on Bricks. We had a short chat with the guys about the tour and happenings in general. Enjoy
Interview: Bed on Bricks
MA: Hi guys… it is such a pleasure to be featuring you guys on the site!! Is everyone doing well today?
We are all fantastic thank you. We are super excited to play with the crash test dummies.
MA: Before we get started, can you please introduce us to the members of Bed on Bricks?
On bass we have Schalk, vocal and sax Mike , Dave on Guitar and Tim on drums
MA: How/Where did you guys meet up to form this formidable partnership?
We all kinda knew of each other but it was Mikes idea to put us in a jam room.
MA: Can you give us a short background on the name Bed on Bricks?
There is not much to it, we wanted a South African name and this popped up, however there has been a rumor of one of us being the Tockalosh.
MA: Where do you guys take inspiration from in your “sound”?
We love rock, reggae, punk Blues and funk, so most of those bands playing these styles have been inspiring.
MA: Our local scene has been growing positively over the past few years… What are your thoughts on our local music scene at the moment and if there is anything you wish to see happen differently?
It would be great if more company’s could invest in the development of music especially in schools. Also more music venues would help.
MA: Are there any local acts that you think need a special mention?
Gangs of Ballet
MA: You will be on the line up, as supporting act to the Crash Test Dummies, in February in CT and PTA. Are you excited for these shows? What can we expect from your set?
We plan to deliver a face melting set that will be remembered.
MA: Anything that you guys are currently working on that we would be interested in hearing about?
We currently working on a new album which should be out mid to late this year.
MA: Where can we follow you on social media?
