Rising Stars Revisited - BIG TRUCK

1. What's happened for the band in 2006? (Any line-up changes, new music etc)

2006 has been the year we recorded our album and launched our band to the masses and have been building up a following. We launched our album successfully and have played an enourmous amount of shows and even played out in Canada, on our Canadian tour.

2. What bands have you been involved with live wise during 2006 and live highlight(s)?

We played with rising stars Lupen Crook and the Michelles as well as a band called Projekt Mayhem with former members of Terrovision. There has probably been too many highlights to pick one, BIG TRUCK show are rarely less than entertaining whether we are playing or not. We know how to have a good time.

3. What have been the highlight(s) and low point(s) of this year?

The loss of our old drummer left us a little hard up for a while and the long process that was our recording left us really really be hind schedule but its all worked out for the best now. Highlights was our album launch where we packed out the Purple Turtle in Camden and literally blew everyone away, it was a really touching moment which people still recall fondly now.
4. Is your audience the same people who have followed the band since its early days, or are you picking up a different fan base?

We have both old and new faces adding to our fan base, always suprised at what people like some good ol ROCK and ROLL. Recently we have gained a lot of Canadian fans from the tour both old and young, cowboy and hockey players alike. haha

5. Any good rock 'n' roll tales to tell?

The old adage stays... " What goes on tour stays on tour" if you want to know some stories you have to ply us with booze and corner us.

7. Your take on the current music scene (both rock & in gerneal terms)...

The music scene in London is a bit tired really. The only real good music is underground. Seems like its in a transition state, as Indie has held the torch for a while. But saying that out in Canada ROCK is thriving and they really dont get the London scene at all. So we are not really ones to judge, we just get up and do our thing seems to go down ok.

8. Which new musicians/bands do you think have impressed you? Who would you like to work with in the future?

Muse have been one of hte most amazing bands in the last year, they know how to put on a show. But saying that there are a lot of talented people out there, wouldnt mind working with some R&B producers seeing what the different influences could do to our band. Snoop Dogg as hes just the coolest guy. But most of all Phil Collins... if you have to question that then you really need to listen to him.

9. What would you like to achieve ideally by this time next year?

We'd like to have some backing and be able to quit our jobs. Just making a sustainable income from music. That would be fantastic.

10. Message to your fans...

BIG TRUCK is the unstoppable force of ROCK in London.
