It’s no secret, Broken Headphones loves Henry Wagons and his band Wagons (two consecutive posts might hint at that…). The guy beyond hilarious and his band dishes out some of the best outlaw country/rock I’ve heard in a long time.
I just hammered out a review of the latest Wagons release the other day for your reading pleasure and decided I might as well touch base with Henry through the magical forces of email. Currently Henry and his band are touring North America in support of their new release titled Rumble, Shake and Tumble. Here’s what he had to say:
Henry, what brings you back to the states?
My global brainwashing mission is in full effect! I eventually want to take over the world with one of those swirly patterns on a TV transmission. Playing music with my band is the first step.
Were you able to bring your band along this time?
I have brought 3 stinky dudes with me.
How has the tour been so far?
It’s been great. Pretty much Seattle and Canada so far. I’m still bracing myself for the rest. I want to try as many weird burgers as I can.
I understand you flew to Toronto Monday night in a small plane with old men. How did that go?
It was a little bumpy and a little grumpy (old men).
How’s the tour been this round? Did that stupid hurricane affect you at all?
The only hurricane style event we have faced was the powerful massage shower in our Toronto hotel room.
What can someone expect to see at a Wagons show?
A lot of pent up energy expressed from many hours in the van and in airport customs queues. All the bodily fluids that are retained within our bodies from a aeroplane pressurised cabin come out on stage in the form of blood sweat and tears.
Most importantly, are you rocking the headband?
You know it.
Wagons are actually playing the Beachland Tavern this Sunday! Tickets are only $8. As I have mentioned previously in posts, Wagons are already big deal in Australia. 8 bucks…do it!
