Two Minutes With Iron Worzel

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

We spend a couple of minutes with Iron Worzel before their support slot for Sleep in Adelaide on December 9 and find out what’s new …

What’s going on in the world of Iron Worzel?
The last 18 months have been a little difficult for us. We’ve only been able to play a handful of shows due to our previous vocalist’s problems with his throat. Nigel unfortunately left the band and our bass player took over vocal duties and we brought in Josh from a local band called Mammoth to play bass. Currently we are writing new material for a possible release next year and thoughts of maybe touring Europe or Asia.

What motivates you to make music?
Some of us guys have been playing for over 20 years. You get to meet some amazing people, share your views and thoughts of the world and experience amazing bands. Being part of a community I guess.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
High points — I’d say just getting on stage and playing live whether it’s in Adelaide or interstate. Supporting international acts like Macabre and Poison Idea or getting positive feedback from folk all over the planet about our music.

Low points — losing our vocalist. It was a difficult time but besides that it’s all been good.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Gator Nate Augustus — Only Child Family Band
Cathedral — Statik Majik
Electric Light Orchestra — A New World Record
Robert Johnson — The Complete Recordings

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
Well if I wanted to get drunk I’d eat Shep ’cause he’s got a gut full of whiskey. I’d eat Shane if I wanted to get High and I’d eat Danny If I wanted to eat because that man can eat like no other human being!

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Redfoo. He is the beacon of everything I hate about commercial music. Oh, and I hate public transport. Saw a guy taking a shit at the Adelaide Showgrounds train station on the steps. Trains in Adelaide somehow attract freaks and all sorts of weirdos!

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
