Introducing: The Quicksilver Kings
Vintage songwriting, big melodies and a bit of chaos, from Hull…
YOUR NAME: Keith Hagger.
BAND NAME: The Quicksilver Kings.
WHAT DO YOU DO/PLAY? Lyrics/singer.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TOGETHER AS A BAND/PLAYING MUSIC? Since 2012.
GIVE US 3 REASONS WHY WE SHOULD TRACK DOWN, LISTEN AND DISCOVER YOUR MUSIC?
It’s full of melody, you can sing along and there’s no one quite like us.
WHERE DO YOU SOUND BEST – FESTIVAL, CLUB, BEDROOM – OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?
I think we sound good no matter where we are, but I am biased. The energy the crowd give you is just as important, but we like our sound live and recording in a studio or at a rehearsal in someone’s kitchen making music is a joyous expression of the soul.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES RIGHT AND YOU’VE GOT A MANSION AND A SUPERMODEL GIRL/BOYFRIEND, WHAT WILL BE YOUR BIGGEST MUSICAL INDULGENCE?
None of the above. We are all too sensible. We will probably just continue to try write better songs and create more art and try keep progressing our sound more then anything.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES WRONG AND YOU’VE ACRIMONIOUSLY BROKEN UP CITING HUGE MUSICAL DIFFERENCES, WHAT DO YOU FALL BACK ON?
PLEASE CITE SOME INTER-BAND MUSICAL DIFFERENCES…
Steve, one of the guitarists, is a model. Me and Jamie are just regular looking people, lol.
WHO ARE YORKSHIRE’S FINEST IN CULTURE, SPORT AND MUSIC?
Its hard to pick as we have a lot of faves, but the people we listen to most are Jody McKenna, Emily Moulton, Dan Spooner, Rob Burgess, Ryan Mosleh, Happy Endings, Urban Rain, to name a few.
NAME YOUR SUPERGROUP – WHO’S PLAYING WHAT AND WHO’S ON VOCALS?
Lennon, vocals. Dylan, guitar. Keith Richards, more guitar. Ginger Baker, bass. Keith Moon, drums.
