Gang Colours // In Short

gang colours

Having released his second album ‘Invisible In Your City’ only last month, Southampton musician Gang Colours has been amassing some heavyweight fans with the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs and Huw Stephens singing his praises. Latest single ‘Why Didn’t You Call’ features born-to-be-a-star singer Lulu James, smooth and melencoloy it’s tinged with a heartbreaking desperation, the two compliment each other perfectly. Listen here:

Gang Colours has just been added to our good friends Lanzarote’s Christmas party, and one hell of a party it’s going to be too, with the likes of Jacuzzi Boys, Night Beats, Paradise and Moon Gangs playing as well we bet it’s gonna be messy, loud, and brilliantly fun. It’s on December 5th at Corisca Studios, so put it in your diaries and get a ticket now. We get to know Gang colours a little better below:

If we had to describe our music in 3 words, we’d use…

Not. That. Bad

My favourite film ever is…

‘Basquiat’ dir. Julian Schnabel

The most famous person I’ve met is… 

Frank Bruno

The song I hate the most is…

‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ sung by a very elderly choral group.  There’s something haunting about that.

The Worst Job I’ve ever had is…

Ive had many different jobs in my life so far, so im finding it difficult to pin point one particularly bad one.  I didn’t particularly like any of them, because they were all getting in the way of music making!  But one that sticks out in my head right now would be working in the admin department for a Hospital Car Park.  Yes, they have their own department.  Yes, it was bleak.

If I was in a tribute band it would be a….

2pac tribute band.  I was born for the role.

If I could play a gig anywhere it would be…

In my house and stream it online.  because I’m a lazy fool.

I think you should listen to…

Shawn Christopher’s debut album ‘Love Story’.  A very well thought out and cohesive album – that stands on its own feet in the forever growing US Hip-Hop genre.

If I see anyone play live it would be…

Trippple Nippples.  Ive seen them once already but they bring an energy ive never felt before.  which i need to witness again.
