Not wiping, Sonic Prozac and reigniting your sexual flame. We had a quick chat with the funkiest men of the moment Bosco Rogers.
Following the release of their LP we had to catch up quickly with the men who created one of the best summer albums we have heard in a very long time. Bosco Rogers are those men and we grabbed Del from the band for a few words.
What’s the origin of the name?
It comes from Bosc-Roger-sur-Buchy, the little village in Normandy where we conceived our first little musical bastard, a boy named ‘Goo’.
How did you guys meet and what made you want to make music together?
We met in a bar, a long time ago, in a city far, far away…
Nothing made us want to make music together, it just kind of happened, a happy accident. More important is what makes us want to continue to make music together, a shared love of melody, noise, humour and crappy instruments.
How did you find your own musical voice?
We strained real hard and after some effort it popped out fully formed. Didn’t even need to wipe.
How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard you before?
The throbbing fuzz of happiness laced with melancholia. Summer loving and backseat rubbings, all jacked up on Malibu and Mountain Dew.
What do you think your music can do for people/say to people? Is it important to you guys to convey any sort of message or relatability through your music, or is music for the sake of music enough in your opinion?
Our music can reignite you sexual flame, it’s like sonic Prozac. In amongst the tales of forlorn love and relationships there are some nice positive messages about hope, love, embracing life and enjoying it for what it is. These things are important to us.
Who do you want to enjoy your music?
Everyone (except for Malcolm, cause he’s a bastard).
The sound is guitar heavy – who are some of your guitar heroes?
The guy that hits his guitar to make squealing noises. The hombre that has the loud amp with the springy sound. The gentleman with the hanky on his head. The dude with the long hair and the fancy looking guitar.
What’s coming in the near future from you guys? What’s in store for you?
Festivals and gigs! Then we’re going to buy solid gold houses and get boob jobs with the all money we make from our album.
I don’t think I could find a better band to bestow the gifts of solid gold houses and boob jobs upon and judging by the album they could have 34 DDs by the end of the year.
