Episode title and number: Season 2 Episode 13

The Hazy Janes

Brief summary of show:

Episode 1 (13 in sequence) is an interview with a Blues Rock duo from Halifax that recently released their debut single "Yellow Belly Blues" who caught the attention of Trev one evening whilst listening to Planet Rock. Needless to say Trev forwarded details of the track to Wayne who also fully enjoyed the single and the guys thought they would ask The Hazy Janes for an interview to discuss their music, influences and future plans. Thankfully Ellis who is the lead vocalist and lead guitar agreed to come on the show.

00:00  Wayne
This is a mid life less
00:00
ordinary. And this is season
00:04
two, episode one. And this is
00:04
the hazy James.
00:29  Unknown
Johnny was looking
00:55
a Cessna one on the face.
02:23  Trev
Right. Did you law Were
02:23
you here? Because why don't I
02:26
did. We were lucky enough to
02:26
snag an interview with these
02:29
guys. They're a new heavy bass
02:29
blues rock band from Halifax and
02:35
that was the Yellow Belly blues
02:35
from the hazy giants.
02:38  Wayne
I think that track is a
02:38
real ear worm. I listened to
02:40
this every night after we were
02:40
having dinner. And the boy just
02:44
can't stop singing. It's a real
02:44
way when what I would say is go
02:48
to Spotify and download the
02:48
track hazy James Yellow Belly
02:52
blues from there. So you can
02:52
give it the full hi fi treatment
02:54
because podcasts do
02:54
unfortunately come out in mono.
02:57
But I still think it sounds cool
02:57
on Nitro if you
03:00  Trev
does, it needs to be
03:00
played loud as well. Yeah,
03:02
definitely rephrase that riff is
03:02
a killer. He really is. That's
03:05
the first thing when I heard
03:05
about Hurley on Planet Rock. I
03:08
was like that riff is just
03:08
great. Yeah, and consider the
03:14
two of them as a big noise for
03:14
two pieces. There's
03:17  Wayne
a very big noise. It's a
03:17
very big noise. And now they can
03:20
say they've opened a show.
03:22  Unknown
Yes, right. Yeah.
03:24  Wayne
Welcome to season two
03:24
everyone. Yeah, a bit different.
03:27
Much of the show is the same as
03:27
always, but you know, just a bit
03:33
different to kick it off. Yeah,
03:33
we've got we've got the hazy
03:35
joins. We've got Alice from the
03:35
hazy joins, we'll go straight to
03:38
the interview. So we have Alice
03:38
with us today from the hazy
03:43
Jane's the hazy Jane's are a
03:43
blues rock duo from Halifax. The
03:48
other one wine very heavy. Yeah.
03:48
I couldn't believe actually when
03:52
you when you say to me, but
03:52
they're a duo. And believe me
03:56
from the sound. As you've heard
03:56
they sound more than two people
04:00
in the band to be fair, don't
04:00
they?
04:02  Unknown
And that's one of the
04:02
first things that struck me to
04:04
be honest.
04:05  Wayne
Yeah, your default is a
04:05
stage. The other member of the
04:08
band is Braun. In he's the
04:08
drummer and you are the vocalist
04:12
and guitarist Ellis.
04:14  Ellis
Yeah, that's right. Yeah,
04:14
we're a two piece rock outfit,
04:18
as I like to describe it, I
04:18
suppose. From the the beautiful
04:24
Gulf country of Halifax
04:29  Wayne
named Alice hazy Jane's.
04:29
I did a Google of it, because I
04:34
want you to be out with it and
04:34
everything and No. And I was a
04:36
bit shocked with what I found.
04:36
Because I think I could be
04:39
arrested with some of the stuff
04:39
that come up on Google when I
04:42
typed in hazy Jas. I know one of
04:42
them was it basically, as an IPA
04:47
brew dog drink. The other one
04:47
was something a salubrious kind
04:51
of substance. And the other one
04:51
I can't even mention I don't
04:54
think you can I can I ask where
04:54
the name comes from and why you
04:58
chose it. You
05:00  Ellis
Yeah, yeah, so basically,
05:00
me and me and Brahm, very big
05:05
craft beer, some, and we do tend
05:05
to have the odd brew dog. So I
05:14
don't know if we're gonna get
05:14
sued in the future
05:16  Unknown
sponsorship deal.
05:20  Ellis
We did, we did sort of, I
05:20
think it was, it was me
05:23
Actually, I was just down in my
05:23
face count of charity Jed from
05:27
brewdog. And, and I thought,
05:27
Man, this is a really good idea.
05:30
Why don't we just call us over
05:30
hazy, James? It's my favorite
05:33
beer.
05:36  Wayne
Thanks. I'm glad you
05:36
cleared out but I'm glad it was
05:38
the most mellow answer out the
05:38
free
05:41  Trev
to be I was quite hoping
05:41
he would be like, some guy you
05:44
POM thing it was
05:46  Wayne
one of them was a bit
05:46
like that.
05:47  Unknown
Yeah. Really?
05:48
Yeah.
05:50  Wayne
I don't know how we would
05:50
have answered that. But yeah,
05:53
maybe
05:54  Ellis
I maybe should have
05:54
googled it before I
05:59  Trev
get it out. You don't have
05:59
to worry about googling things
06:03
by yourself and Brian cavum.
06:03
Halifax. Yeah.
06:09  Ellis
No, Brian is from Well,
06:09
he's actually from his online
06:15
picker in the area. So North
06:15
York. But his family runs back
06:20
all the way to like our they
06:20
were talking about some of this
06:24
is completely going off topic
06:24
now. But yeah, his family goes
06:27
back to like Richard the third
06:27
and all the way back to like 156
06:32
or something. If you're like a
06:32
really, really big family line.
06:37
So I think he'd like part part
06:37
Norwegian, or,
06:44  Unknown
oh, gosh, I had to beat
06:44
then.
06:47  Ellis
Oh, we've been asked
06:47
started playing the guitar in
06:52
when I was 16. And then by the
06:52
time I was probably like, 17, I
06:57
was playing in my first band and
06:57
stuff like that. And then I
07:01
eventually went to music
07:01
college, did a few gigs with
07:03
another band. And we played a
07:03
gig in home, a place called
07:07
O'Reilly's, which is a venue
07:07
just outside the hole. He was
07:12
playing in a band called
07:12
Bigfoot. And I met him there.
07:16
And they were like, blues, blues
07:16
rock band, with bronze dad, as
07:23
the drummer brothers playing the
07:23
guitar. In fact, in this band,
07:28
brothers, Daddy's like, is a bit
07:28
of a genius. Sort of like a bit
07:31
of a manager for us as well
07:31
tells us we don't share or not.
07:37
Everyone needs one of those. And
07:37
yeah,
07:41  Trev
to be honest, at least
07:41
that's the good thing because
07:43
you can be honest with you.
07:43
Manager that's kind of bats
07:47
around a BS. Oh, yeah. That's
07:47
all right. That's right. You
07:50
know, he's going to be honest
07:50
with you. He's going to be to be
07:52
it reminds me of laws doing
07:52
state where they do have you
07:55
ever seen that? What you said
07:55
about what is the Black Album
07:58
sale? And he's old man was like,
07:58
sounds like shit. Was it black?
08:05
Or the air marked up? Wherever
08:05
one it was? He absolutely kinda
08:08
laws are extended. And this is
08:08
what I mean. He can be honest.
08:12
Yeah, he did. Yeah. Yeah, he
08:12
did. He might even be loaded, I
08:15
think which probably deserves
08:15
it, to be honest.
08:20  Ellis
That's all right. But
08:20
yeah, Brahms does it have a guru
08:25
is a big Led Zeppelin father,
08:25
these, his is definitely helped
08:29
us come up with some ideas and
08:29
stuff. And he's been really
08:33
positive about the whole thing
08:33
as well. I think it's his sort
08:35
of music as well. So it does
08:35
help to have somebody that is
08:38
honest, balsa are supportive at
08:38
the same time.
08:42  Unknown
Definitely.
08:43  Ellis
So yes, that's probably a
08:43
brand new gig. And we've been
08:46
well, I think it's long overdue.
08:46
beardbrand playing in the same
08:50
band together. Because we've
08:50
always,
08:53  Trev
things are just meant to
08:53
happen, aren't they? If that
08:56
makes sense. You know, it just
08:56
yeah.
09:01  Ellis
We've we've always
09:01
questioned each other, like, why
09:03
have we never started doing
09:03
something together before? We're
09:07
always questioning each other on
09:07
it, and it's as far as we can
09:11
get hung up on it to which we're
09:11
doing now. It's good. It sounds
09:15
good. I'm
09:15  Trev
really happy with how it's
09:15
going. Ellie Mae does sound
09:19
great. does sound really good?
09:20  Wayne
Yeah, saying that heavy
09:20
blues rock sound Trevor and IDQ
09:25
so much. You must have some
09:25
great influences Ellis
09:30  Ellis
Yeah, I've got I've got
09:30
quite a few to be fair and
09:33
bronze similar. So like, I think
09:33
for me personally, jack White is
09:37
a massive influence on me. I
09:37
remember seeing him at Brinks
09:42
bar of all places. When he first
09:42
released his first solo record
09:46
and he was he just blew me away.
09:46
It's just he's a fantastic
09:51
artist are these. These uh, it
09:51
just changes his sound, every
09:56
single in every single song as
09:56
opposed to different albums.
10:00
sighs he's just he's a massive
10:00
influence on me. And especially
10:03
mixing with that blues size
10:03
thing where it sounds, you know,
10:09
it sounds like he's recorded it
10:09
off a potato. And he's just
10:14
like, it just makes it sound
10:14
great. And I don't know how like
10:18
today against the system, the
10:21  Trev
icon thing with guitars
10:21
like that, that is that they
10:25
kind of a what I love about
10:25
some, most guitarists that I
10:30
admire is, you know, insulates
10:30
them from their tone. Yeah, but
10:35
they can still sort of change
10:35
and go with different things and
10:39
you still notice them. You know,
10:39
that kind of signature sound,
10:43
you know, I think, has really
10:43
got that kind of, and I think,
10:48
debaters when they first come
10:48
out The White Stripes. There
10:52
wasn't a lot of bands would be
10:52
doing that kind of modern sort
10:56
of scotch bows. I'd call it a
10:56
bit Delta Blues style. Really,
11:00
no one was doing it. Well, they
11:00
Yeah, no,
11:02  Ellis
no, that's right. That
11:02
they were they were sort of the
11:06
first ones especially to make it
11:06
sort of mainstream as well. So
11:08
that sort of music. I mean, that
11:08
really just added something
11:13
different. And I think that
11:13
there was not really many two
11:16
pieces around. Definitely not
11:16
that I can think of where
11:19
they've still had that sort of
11:19
Wall of Sound sound like an
11:22
army. It was as if a full band
11:22
is playing. And there were just
11:28
so many so many catchy lyrics.
11:28
That was it was still heavy
11:32
music as well. I think I think
11:32
he said he just wanted it to
11:36
sound as if it was live every
11:36
single time and he only recorded
11:41
on a like an eight track
11:41
recorder. You know, I just
11:44
either he goes a bit daft with
11:44
the elderly, but the really
11:48
clever guy. Clever. Yeah. Yeah,
11:48
yeah.
11:52  Trev
It's funny because that
11:52
kind of heavy blues rock is it
11:56
the band I like, died, I listen
11:56
to quite a bit. I haven't heard
12:00
that they're still together, a
12:00
band called Nothing is left Left
12:03
hand cruiser. And they were to
12:03
police. And they were very kind
12:07
of heavy American guys. But it
12:07
is amazing with that sort of
12:11
blues rock sound that especially
12:11
the heavier blues rock, like
12:14
yourself and left lane crews
12:14
that they can they can only be
12:18
two of them. Like they create
12:18
such a sort of Sonic Boom, if
12:22
that makes sense. Yeah. I think
12:22
that there really is.
12:28  Ellis
Yeah, I agree. I mean,
12:28
before the his agenda was in a,
12:33
I was in another two piece
12:33
called, called freak. And that
12:37
was a lot heavier. And so
12:37
basically, what I found was with
12:43
two pieces, not that I know
12:43
everything about music and two
12:45
pieces and all that because I'm
12:45
really I really don't.
12:48  Trev
I do I do. And so you can
12:48
just talk to me. I know.
12:54  Wayne
He's joking, but
12:54
unfortunately, I can't on this
12:56
topic.
12:59  Ellis
And it's just that, I
12:59
think when it comes to up people
13:03
can you know, the see the, the
13:03
music solves their problem. So
13:09
they can hear the guitar and you
13:09
can see the guitar, they can see
13:11
the vocals, they can hear the
13:11
vocals and exceed the drums. You
13:14
know, I mean, whereas sometimes
13:14
if you've got five guitars and
13:16
two bears, two drums, like just
13:16
too much sound and carry them
13:21
back out every single instrument
13:21
I think that people are, you
13:24
know, the people that just like
13:24
to listen to music as opposed to
13:27
create music and do all that and
13:27
just want to watch it. That's
13:30
quite interesting to people like
13:30
that.
13:36  Trev
But I think that it
13:36
doesn't know each day. I think
13:38
what you're saying is well, he's
13:38
like it's pure, isn't it? Yeah.
13:43
Yeah, you can you can as you say
13:43
you can hear where it's coming
13:46
from. You know, it's not like a
13:46
kind of mishmash and like to be
13:51
listened to quite a bit of old
13:51
prog rock and stuff. As much as
13:54
I love it. Sometimes you can
13:54
just sound so eccentric and or
13:59
they're just they're just their
13:59
own RC sometimes you think he's
14:02
groovy and stuff but really,
14:02
like, just that's I think that's
14:08
the reason AC DC I like some
14:08
most people's favorite rock band
14:13
because it is just that riff
14:13
isn't it?
14:17  Ellis
Oh, yeah.
14:18  Trev
Oh, I mean, the riff is
14:18
the key you know? Yeah, I
14:21  Ellis
think me and my mom, work
14:21
partner boss I don't I leave on
14:26
the best net. But we were we was
14:26
in the valley with lucid in AC
14:30
DC and, and I've never really
14:30
full on delved into the ACDC
14:35
thing and listened to all the
14:35
album's all the way through it's
14:38
always just been the hit. So you
14:38
know I'm back in right now
14:42
that's our thing. But sometimes
14:42
the the the best songs are like
14:47
the sixth or seventh or eighth
14:47
track on the album and the ones
14:51
that have like the really catchy
14:51
rest and just that really simple
14:54
drumbeat. It's just they're the
14:54
best songs for me. I think that
14:58
yeah, that I really I agree when
14:58
you say that about everything
15:01
they like they're really quite
15:01
simplistic but they're really
15:04
really, really really good and
15:04
most proud of their people seven
15:08
The
15:08  Trev
last thing I'll say about
15:08
AC DC to me, because I I'm a
15:13
massive fan of the built in
15:13
Scott era, the earliest stuff
15:16
rather than then I did I dang
15:16
it. brackin Black is just like a
15:19
milestone in rock music, isn't
15:19
it? But yeah, Bond Scott stuff.
15:24
He had that kind of dirty kind
15:24
of greasy and coolness about it.
15:29
I think that dirtiness of it say
15:29
days he didn't he had that kind
15:33
of rotted out, sort of uncle, he
15:33
wouldn't leave your teenage
15:38
niece with it. But looking at
15:38
what he did, he had that kind
15:47
of, and I think a lot of bands
15:47
that took on that mentor have
15:51
the ACDC riff of the coal
15:51
circles of power and that they
15:56
all have that kind of Grecia
15:56
that's quite become a bit biker
15:59
rock, I think. But with your
15:59
athletes, it's a lot more kind
16:02
of seven is sort of influenced
16:02
rather than that kind of greasy.
16:09
You know, which I think's
16:09
refreshing, if that makes sense.
16:12
It really does you know,
16:13  Wayne
and took talking of that
16:13
as well. I mean, the pressures
16:17
of actually having to work
16:17
together during lockdown what
16:21
how did you embrun practice
16:21
Ellis.
16:25  Ellis
So Well, like I mentioned
16:25
I've mentioned before about two
16:31
days before that's over locked
16:31
down that sort of like broke
16:35
away and we started just with on
16:35
different paths in our lives and
16:40
all that sort of thing and I was
16:40
a bit of a I really wanted to
16:43
carry on doing music and you
16:43
know, as well I've always wanted
16:46
to do and all that sort of
16:46
thing. But I didn't really know
16:51
what else to do because and I
16:51
really want to do my own thing
16:56
and do solo stuff because I'd
16:56
rather just rock out on stage
16:59
with an electric guitar and
16:59
Boston acoustic he was saying
17:05  Trev
you chose the right path
17:05
there my you really
17:10  Ellis
I don't know if I can do
17:10
the lobby dad voice if you don't
17:13
I mean that sounds like I'm
17:13
taking the pace but
17:19  Trev
I don't think a lot of Ed
17:19
Sheeran fans listen to his
17:21
podcast so you can
17:25  Wayne
definitely want to have
17:25
any Now I know that
17:30  Ellis
I am a ginger mom that
17:30
well
17:34  Wayne
we got nothing against
17:34
them nothing again. But But
17:39
yeah, it must have been
17:39
challenging LSD is just too
17:41
short obviously to put something
17:41
together like yellowbelly blues
17:44
in the during the lockdown Did
17:44
you sorry is it recorded in a
17:47
studio? Did you guys lay down
17:47
separate tracks or an edited
17:51
together? How was it done?
17:54  Ellis
So I thought of like
17:54
wrote the riff and did all this
17:59
sort of thing where before I met
17:59
Brian. And I really liked it and
18:04
the lyrics were there and
18:04
everything. And then I messaged
18:06
Brian and said do you want to do
18:06
fancy doing something and you
18:10
can even just, you know dip in
18:10
on a track for me or something
18:13
like that. He was like now I've
18:13
actually just about the time
18:16
will ask you if he wants to do
18:16
something with me. So I was like
18:18
Yeah, let's do it. So we
18:18
basically just spent a month or
18:23
two sending voice recordings to
18:23
each other over Facebook
18:26
Messenger and getting excited
18:26
about different ideas and I
18:30
showed him Yellow Belly blues
18:30
and he was like oh man this is
18:32
this is really cool really like
18:32
it really liked the sound. And
18:35
he sent me like a German tracker
18:35
and stuff and then we said
18:38
Should we get like a
18:38
professional recording and we'd
18:41
like to do it so there's a
18:41
studio in York that we we went
18:45
to we we made sure we was doing
18:45
all the government guidelines
18:48
and stuff and there turns out
18:48
that you know if you're in a
18:52
professional band and you do
18:52
earn money in somewhere that you
18:54
can go and record albeit
18:54
socially distance regard as a
18:59
two piece beta two pieces a lot
18:59
easier to be socially distance
19:03
and all that I think so. And so
19:03
it was it was a little bit
19:08
different than the usual way of
19:08
recording but we got there at
19:12
the end and yeah,
19:16  Wayne
music first setlist as
19:16
opposed to like music before
19:19
lyrics, obviously.
19:21  Ellis
Yeah, for me personally.
19:21
Yeah, I mean, every now and
19:23
again, I'll come with like, a
19:23
hotline or something like that
19:27
when I'm out and about but it's
19:27
usually the music comes first
19:31
and then the lyrics come
19:31
afterwards. To me personally,
19:34
yeah,
19:34  Wayne
yeah. Yeah, sounds
19:36  Trev
cool. Yeah, that is
19:36
talking about the way you've
19:40
recorded the track is such a
19:40
shine because playing live is
19:46
obviously the biggest thing and
19:46
like, I can just, you know, I'm
19:50
really looking forward to seeing
19:50
you play live. Hopefully you get
19:52
to London at some point. And we
19:52
can come up and meet you guys
19:56
like there and see you play but
19:56
you know, That's the whole
20:00
lifeblood of of start in band
20:00
II. You need that that snatched
20:05
away from you really, haven't
20:05
you? So? I bet you're itching to
20:09
just like because you'd sound
20:09
great in a nice will. vibrant,
20:14
sweaty kind of rock club blob
20:14
banging it out. Right. Exactly.
20:18
That's, you know, I bet you're
20:18
really jumping at the bit to get
20:23
out and do it. You might.
20:25  Ellis
Absolutely Yeah, we've
20:25
been. We're so desperate to, to
20:29
get out and do a gig. We've got.
20:29
We've actually finally got a
20:34
couple of days booked in.
20:36
in Sheffield, that the the I
20:36
forgot the name of it. The
20:43
links? Yeah, we'll
20:43  Wayne
put the links to that.
20:43
Yeah.
20:46  Ellis
Cool. Yeah, thank you. We
20:46
will play there. We just can't
20:52
wait. We're hopefully gonna do
20:52
like, we've got like a new thing
20:58
or retarded that we might, we
20:58
don't know when to drop it.
21:01
We're not, we're just going to
21:01
try and ride on the yellowbelly
21:03
blues thing as long as possible
21:03
at the minute and then
21:06
hopefully, we'll get around to
21:06
releasing another single and
21:09
potentially doing some live
21:09
streams in a venue in yarks. To
21:13
be honest, doing just doing
21:13
anything that's partially live
21:16
will be absolutely fantastic.
21:16
And we can't wait to just share
21:19
what we've got. We've got so
21:19
much more than just yellowbelly
21:22
loose to share.
21:23  Wayne
It's gonna sit down it's
21:23
gonna be one of our questions,
21:25
at least it was like well, if
21:25
you got waiting, if you've got
21:27
an album like ready to go near
21:27
enough, you know, once you get
21:30
yellowbelly blues right out
21:30
there.
21:33  Ellis
On the sorry, the the
21:33
list of ideas and songs that
21:38
we've got is really quite
21:38
extensive. We've got quite a lot
21:43
in there and it's all quite
21:43
different. It's not all it
21:45
doesn't all sound like yellow
21:45
bellied blues it some of it
21:47
sounds a little bit different
21:47
than sort of it's a bit more
21:50
physically so limits a bit more,
21:50
you know, sort of like even
21:53
Arctic Monkeys warehouse.
21:58  Trev
Right? Yeah. Yeah, the
21:58
live thing going back to that
22:01
it's, there's nothing like live
22:01
music is there and it's just
22:04
going to kind of like live
22:04
Stafford support him wise,
22:09
obviously, it'd be great to get
22:09
a nice sort of tour and they're
22:13
in a dream kind of world man.
22:13
Who would you like to support
22:16
like past and present? You know,
22:16
if you could pick one back that
22:19
you could learn from? Have a
22:19
good time with, you know, all of
22:23
the above my, who would you do?
22:23
Would you say
22:28  Ellis
to me for I think that
22:28
the only band that I could ever
22:32
support that really is I'd have
22:32
to say the rock concert. I think
22:38
that there'd be written because
22:38
they're all all of the musicians
22:42
within that band of really,
22:42
really well. educated in the
22:47
whole music scene and music,
22:47
business and all that sort of
22:49
things. I just, I just think
22:49
that they teach me a lot. As
22:54
well as probably be just cool.
22:54
And obviously Jacqueline is
22:58
still in that band. Era but I'm
22:58
sure that Brian would probably
23:05
say Led Zeppelin
23:07  Wayne
talking of Led Zeppelin,
23:07
I've got something about Led
23:11
Zeppelin for you guys. I've got
23:11
the weekly segment called test
23:15
the guest now elysa and was just
23:15
hoping you'd like to take part
23:18
it's all about legs. Good stuff.
23:18
Test.
23:24  Unknown
Test test
23:30  Wayne
it's a very unique intro
23:30
there Ellis as you can tell is
23:35
unique is the polite word. Okay,
23:35
so it's all just a bit of fun
23:39
Ellis just four or five
23:39
questions you guys traders say
23:42
usually this is the bit where we
23:42
make fun of trades and get our
23:45
own back for everything he does
23:45
to us every day this is a
23:49
subject he knows a lot about so
23:49
you know I'm not so you know I
23:53
could have I should have done is
23:53
just made up a load of baloney
23:56
and seen him struggle but I
23:56
haven't done yet out of India
23:59  Unknown
standard for this show,
23:59
to be honest, but these are
24:02  Wayne
multiple choice le so you
24:02
just have a stab if you if
24:05
you're not sure, but it's all
24:05
about sampling. So, first
24:09
question to you, Ellis. In which
24:09
year did Led Zeppelin make their
24:13
lie of us debut? Was it
24:13
67 1967 1968 1969
24:21  Ellis
Well, I'm gonna say 68
24:27  Wayne
Did you know that or did
24:27
I guess that?
24:30  Ellis
No, I did not know.
24:32  Trev
He knew all the guests do
24:32
that. Well, I didn't really know
24:40  Unknown
cola. Yeah.
24:43  Ellis
Robert plump sitting next
24:43
to me just
24:47  Wayne
sped on your Google any
24:47
trade that you try and don't
24:49
have in Robert.
24:51  Trev
JOHN Bonham sitting next
24:51
to me then I would be freaked
24:53
out.
24:56  Wayne
question to you into
24:56
which British thing Recommended
25:00
Led Zeppelin to Atlantic
25:00
Records. Was it Dusty
25:04
Springfield of all people Rod
25:04
Stewart or Mick Jagger.
25:11  Trev
See the obvious choice is
25:11
Mick Jagger isn't it
25:15  Unknown
not telling you
25:19  Trev
he's Dusty Springfield,
25:19
isn't it?
25:28  Wayne
Just got one go on.
25:30  Unknown
I'm just gonna throw it
25:30
out there and say dusty springs.
25:39  Wayne
I really wanted to give
25:39
you the other one. No, really? I
25:44
don't know anything about that.
25:44
I haven't got any follow up with
25:46
that. So did you know anything
25:46
about that Ellis about how she
25:49
recommended them.
25:51  Ellis
No, but what I did find
25:51
out Halifax big up to Halifax is
25:56
one of Halifax on a dusty
25:56
Springfield's first live shows
26:00
was in Halifax. Wow. And it was
26:00
at the at where the mecca bingo
26:05
is now. But it was
26:15  Wayne
sorry. That was a very
26:15
respectful
26:20  Unknown
Yes, sorry.
26:22  Wayne
anymore sorry. It's even
26:22
worse. You've just made that
26:25
worse. Right question free
26:25
quickly. Question for question
26:31
for you, Ellis. john paul Jones
26:31
once threatened to quit zepplin
26:35
to do what was it be a
26:35
policeman? Be a choir Master? Or
26:40
be a school teacher?
26:43  Ellis
Oh, it looks like a
26:43
school teacher. I think I think
26:45
he's definitely a school teacher
26:51  Wayne
is confident it's
26:51
actually a quiet master.
26:55  Unknown
Really?
26:56  Wayne
Say got no follow up with
26:56
that. So none of us know
26:58
anything about so we can
26:58
elaborate on this one.
27:00
Unfortunately, there's no sort
27:00
of follow up. We can't say we
27:02
got on or if he was ever wrong,
27:02
like the voice or something. But
27:07
yeah. I suppose the choir master
27:07
and a school teacher can be
27:12
intertwined. Yeah, it's changed
27:12
over. You know, it
27:15  Trev
might have been being
27:15
acquired master. I don't I
27:19  Wayne
don't know. You're not
27:19
allowing the town today.
27:22
Question 14. In which city did
27:22
Led Zeppelin play Stairway to
27:27
Heaven live for the very first
27:27
time? Was it New York, Belfast
27:32
or Dallas?
27:41  Trev
Now he is against I don't
27:41
know this
27:45  Wayne
way. If you were if he
27:45
was, he's a guest in that time
27:47
you've taken to answer
27:49  Unknown
rides. Please Dallas.
27:55  Wayne
He said that. He said
27:55
that is actually Belfast to say
28:00
no follow up to that. Do you
28:00
know anything about that? At
28:02
least?
28:03  Ellis
They said no. But I can
28:03
ask my
28:12  Trev
older we do know is we
28:12
each played in every guitar shop
28:15
in the world. In HP with China
28:15
guitars.
28:19  Wayne
I say watch just for just
28:19
for one off test the guest
28:23
special. I'm going to look for a
28:23
question out there and whoever
28:25
answers first about that. Who
28:25
played the recorder? On Stairway
28:30
to Heaven? Was it Robert Plant?
28:30
So you can ask him? john paul
28:35
Jones or Jimmy Page?
28:37  Unknown
Jimmy Page?
28:39  Ellis
Yeah, I said Jimmy Page
28:39
as well. Oh, well.
28:43  Wayne
That may not have to give
28:43
you two is actually john paul
28:48
Jones called john Stairway to
28:48
Heaven. So there you go. that
28:52
knowledge is in your head
28:52
forever. Now you've taken a test
28:54
against
28:55  Unknown
john paul Jones head
28:55
then he was going to be a choir
28:58
master. He
28:58  Wayne
played lives in the
28:58
world. Where does he come by RNA
29:05
recorder. So it's obviously make
29:05
sense.
29:09  Unknown
You add
29:12
profile. john paul Jones would
29:12
have Ed Ellis,
29:19  Wayne
you've you've had a play
29:19
on Planet Rock. Sorry. Sorry.
29:26
Planet Rock. Yeah, that's where
29:26
Trevor sturgeon at is on the
29:30
show. Can you just tell us a
29:30
story that come about?
29:34  Ellis
Yes. just pretty much
29:34
potluck I would imagine. And I
29:40
was just that on that offer. I
29:40
had a day off work and I was
29:43
watching one division, which
29:43
everybody should watch. And I
29:49
was just emailing people. I
29:49
mean, Bundu a lot. We're just
29:53
sooner the you know, you've got
29:53
to do all these marketing
29:55
things. And yeah, just emailing
29:55
everybody, and just So I've
30:01
emailed plenty, right? Well, I
30:01
emailed why I found his email
30:04
address on Twitter or something
30:04
like that. And I was just like,
30:07
Hey, why don't you track here
30:07
just wondering if you if you
30:11
like it, and then they emailed
30:11
me back, I think in like the day
30:15
after, or something which is
30:15
present and he was like really
30:18
like this. Some my family are
30:18
from Halifax as well. So I'll
30:23
get this played on the new rock
30:23
show on Monday night. This was
30:27
on a Tuesday. And then so he was
30:27
talking about the following
30:31
Monday. And then it came to
30:31
Friday, and I had a I had a text
30:34
message and a few calls awesome
30:34
friends. And they were like,
30:37
they just said you. You saw them
30:37
on the Planet Rock. And I was
30:41
like, What? And it was Friday.
30:41
So I was like, stressing out
30:47
like, rebrand my brother. Like,
30:47
everyone started going wild
30:53
about the fact that was on Polly
30:53
rock. In fact, you didn't even
30:56
know it's Planet Rock at that
30:56
point. And people just messaged
30:58
us saying, You're on the radio,
30:58
you're on the radio, it was oh
31:00
my god. Whoa. And I was at this
31:00
point. I was like, it was
31:03
raining and windy. And I was
31:03
like, trying to take a wheel off
31:06
a car and stuff. And I was like,
31:06
What? I'm on the radio, but I'm
31:09
taking a wheel off like What the
31:09
hell's going on?
31:11  Trev
And when they make like
31:11
the movie of you two guys like
31:16
the Bohemian Rhapsody from that
31:16
look great in the film, because
31:22
you'll be like, on the radio,
31:22
they'll be like, yes, like a
31:26
montage. You should say that.
31:26
You said pot the word pot luck,
31:34
because I heard you on that
31:34
Friday. And I was actually
31:37
making a Pot Noodle. When he
31:37
came on, he said and why it
31:44
said, these are heavy blues,
31:44
rock new band, check it out. And
31:48
I was like, that sounds really
31:48
good. And then that's how we
31:54
were lucky enough to get you on
31:54
here because I obviously shared
31:56
it on Instagram and new kind of
31:56
comment and said thanks and
32:00
stuff. And we've tried to
32:00
communicate instead. And now
32:03
you've been good enough to come
32:03
on here, which is great. And he
32:05
must really, really thank ya for
32:05
that. I mean, you met him or
32:09  Ellis
No, I've never met him.
32:09
Yeah, I've listened to his show
32:16
a lot. But I've never never had
32:16
the pleasure of being hated. But
32:19
yeah, hopefully, hopefully one
32:19
day I will.
32:22  Unknown
Yeah, that'd be great.
32:22
Thank him for and that Yeah.
32:26  Ellis
Yeah. I mean, I've been
32:26
great. we've, we've said it a
32:29
couple of messages saying thanks
32:29
for the stuff we're not you
32:32
know, we're not going to overdo
32:32
it and stuff like that, as they
32:34
probably get a little bit late.
32:34
But yeah, just big up to him for
32:39
quite as he said,
32:42  Trev
Tommy second that Elisha
32:42
big up. It's good to get because
32:46
it's so tough in musicians at
32:46
the moment are playing live, as
32:48
I said before, and it's great to
32:48
see Planet Rock supporting young
32:54
bands in light, especially with
32:54
the sort of heavier stuff.
32:57
Because, you know, I listened to
32:57
Planet Rock all the time. And I
32:59
really like it. Oh, yeah, he's a
32:59
mainstay in my household. And I
33:04
have to play everything for
33:04
every everybody. But it's nice
33:07
to hear something a bit bit
33:07
dirty under the fingernails, you
33:10
know, a bit more gritty, you
33:10
know, rather than Green Day
33:15
again, you know, but then that's
33:15
my two cents, you know?
33:20  Ellis
Right, like sometimes
33:20
there's too many, too many quick
33:22
details on the on the radio.
33:25  Wayne
Definitely, definitely.
33:25
Look forward to seeing you on
33:28
the rising stage. rambling man.
33:28
Oh, maybe next year? Ellis? It'd
33:32
be good. Good crowd for you.
33:35  Unknown
It would be?
33:35  Wayne
Yeah. So yeah,
33:37  Trev
I know. I'm rambling man.
33:37
Yeah. You know, but you'd go by
33:42
you really would
33:43  Ellis
not be? That'd be great.
33:43
That'd be absolutely fine. Where
33:46
is where is
33:48  Wayne
it? Maidstone in Kent
33:48
issues? No to us. He's only you
33:53
know, sort of 60 odd miles but
33:53
for us probably 240 or something
33:56
but but still. But it would be
33:56
well worth your time to say the
34:04
audience would really
34:04
appreciate. Well, based on
34:07
yellowbelly blues, you know,
34:07
totally your music. So, you
34:12
know, in the rising stage there
34:12
is exactly for people like
34:15
yourself, so maybe apply for
34:15
that LS when you you know, you
34:19
guys have established yourself a
34:19
bit more. So, you know,
34:21
hopefully,
34:23  Trev
you could get what goes to
34:23
bat so many kind of how do you
34:27
feel about sort of having an
34:27
older audience? I don't suppose
34:30
you really care as long as
34:30
people listen to you, Dave
34:32
Ellis? No, I'm
34:34  Ellis
you know, I'm not picky
34:34
about who listens to us.
34:37  Unknown
I think No. Yeah.
34:41  Ellis
Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
34:45  Wayne
So where can people find
34:45
out more about the band? Alice,
34:48
where she links to your various
34:48
social media and everything?
34:52  Ellis
Yeah, so I think the best
34:52
place is Facebook, Instagram,
34:57
that sort of thing. We do have a
34:57
YouTube channel as well. So if
35:00
people want to go and follow us
35:00
on that, then that's a good way
35:04
of finding out we do actually
35:04
half the message salesman, we do
35:09
actually have a mailing list,
35:09
which is free. And some people
35:14
will have to sign up for the
35:14
mailing list. And they'll
35:17
receive content where before
35:17
everybody else does. So such as
35:22
like, I don't know, nurture, and
35:22
do tickets and all that sort of
35:27
thing. So if people want to sign
35:27
up to our mailing lists, then
35:30
then go for it. Yeah. But I
35:30
think
35:32  Unknown
I think I've signed up
35:32
for that. I'm sure. Yeah. Yeah,
35:38
yeah. Would you be good?
35:40  Wayne
Right free t shirt. Now,
35:40
I
35:47  Unknown
was hoping for winning
35:47
silos.
35:49  Ellis
Oh, yeah. Go for Yeah.
35:49
We'll do a collaboration.
35:54  Wayne
We'll put we'll put all
35:54
the links to everything on on
35:56
the site. So you know, we'll
35:56
have it to YouTube, the mailing
36:00
list everything so people can
36:00
find you. The music's out there.
36:04
yellowbelly blues is out there.
36:04
We've got the other music to
36:06
come. We really looking forward
36:06
to hearing more from you guys.
36:09
Yeah, yeah. Thanks for joining
36:09
us today, Ellis.
36:12  Trev

36:12
your time has been it's been a
36:14
pleasure. And like anybody, just
36:14
check them out. They're great.
36:17
heavy rock Blues Band got big
36:17
future power to get him out of
36:21
here. When they get to play
36:21
live, go and see him support him
36:24
just support music in general,
36:24
because it's all important
36:27
nowadays.
36:28  Ellis
Thank you very much. I
36:28
really appreciate that. Thanks,
36:30  Unknown
Dennis. It's been
36:30
great. I
36:34  Wayne
think it was good to get
36:34
up close and personal with
36:37
somebody we've heard on on the
36:37
radio Trev Do you agree?
36:39  Unknown
Yeah, definitely. Yeah.
36:39
Yeah. To be a good thing is you
36:43
know, it's nice to get a bit of
36:43
background on him. You know,
36:46
what their influences are? Where
36:46
they want to take it The good
36:50
thing is you are enthusiastic.
36:53
Yes. They are.
36:57  Trev
You know, in this world of
36:57
computer music, they just want
37:00
to play they just want to play
37:00
in a sweaty club. Get people
37:04
banging their heads a bit you
37:04
know, get their arms in the air.
37:08
Yeah, just just just rock and
37:08
roll basically
37:10  Wayne
yeah, hopefully as we
37:10
said we'll hopefully see him on
37:13
a stage one of our entertaining
37:13
weekends away at some point so
37:16
yeah, yeah, to get him on
37:16
ramblin man or something like
37:19
that would be terrific would be
37:19
brilliant. Really would we've
37:22
set the scene basically for this
37:22
this season is going to be all
37:25
about interviewing people when
37:25
their hobbies or supporting
37:28
artists in this case obviously
37:28
music artists what we're saying
37:32
is you know, musics great all
37:32
round we've talked about that in
37:36
previous podcasts but go and
37:36
support you you haven't come in
37:38
new bands
37:39  Trev
got to be on it at this
37:39
moment. That's what they're
37:42
going to need to get a new deal
37:42
as soon as this this hopefully
37:45
is you know is over and stuff
37:45
with the otherwise you won't get
37:50
any new music if you don't go
37:50
out and support them. Go to the
37:53
venues the venues are suffering
37:53
if you don't go and go to venues
37:57
they'll shut down true. And
37:57
that's not being funny. I love
38:01
music, but I don't want to sit
38:01
and just watch bands on a screen
38:05
for the rest of my life.
38:06  Wayne
No, no, as much as it's
38:06
nice to have that to accompany
38:10
everything yeah, you need that
38:10
you to be straight if you just
38:13
like what you said earlier
38:13
described it perfectly for you a
38:16
sweaty room with lots of half
38:16
naked men would suit you find
38:20
that Yeah, well
38:21  Unknown
that is my front room.
38:21
most weekends. But it's nice to
38:24
get out. Yeah, exactly. In the
38:24
sun. Yeah. Rather than have an
38:29
overpriced,
38:30  Wayne
overpriced pints of law.
38:30
bloggers and yeah, and all that.
38:33  Unknown
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
38:33
style pizza, because you've left
38:36
it there. We're kind of
38:36
meaningless at night.
38:39  Wayne
Not eating for two days.
38:39
Two days if we're lucky, lucky
38:43
young band ourselves but
38:44  Unknown
yeah, like the rock and
38:44
roll with me once were we wish
38:49  Wayne
but Yeah, please. The
38:49
hazy Jane's will put all their
38:51
social media on on our social
38:51
media. So you can follow the
38:55
guys download their music, see
38:55
what music they're coming up and
38:58
they're doing some gigs later in
38:58
the year. So crazy old and good.
39:02
Can't be what the other one
39:02
cheerful? Definitely was one of
39:04
them on the website trip. So
39:04

39:14
abuse. We love listening to the
39:16
A B now we don't really Trev
39:16
Trev actually had to therapy
39:19
after last season because they
39:19
did yeah. So don't take it
39:23
seriously. Yeah, he was on the
39:23
couch five or so just watching
39:26
Japanese Samurai films trivia
39:26
just you know, that's that
39:29  Trev
was therapist. Yeah, he
39:29
really likes them as well. So
39:33
we've bonded quite a bit. He's
39:33
gonna come to one of my Nike
39:36
managed sessions.
39:38  Wayne
So we've got we've got
39:38
some great interviews coming up
39:42
in season two's good fun. Some
39:42
hobbies you probably would never
39:45
have thought of taking up but
39:45
you might after you've heard
39:48
people talking enthusiastically
39:48
about him. And as always,
39:51
there's a bit of banter well
39:51
from Trev Anyway, you know, just
39:55
sitting there trying to do a job
39:55
and Trev just pros shielding to
39:58
shielding from the banter. So we
39:58
look forward to seeing you next
40:03
week and on episode two of
40:03
season two, and we'll see you on
40:06
the next one. Cheers. Yes, data.
