There’s something about the Scottish accent that draws you in and sometimes makes you wonder “what the fuck are they talking about?” But when they sing, it’s a completely different scenario and that’s how I feel about Biffy Clyro, a trio who have been making music together for the better part of the past two decades and in that time accumulated a somewhat mainstream/underground following in the process. They’re big outside of Australia but they’ve still got a large enough following down under to get them here for an East Coast Tour kicking off next week.
Drummer Ben Johnston is this week’s guest co-host on Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall and he’s chatting all about the band’s history and how he thinks they still haven’t made it yet and that they aren’t big band the world sees them as, considering the fact they’ve headlined Reading & Leeds Festival and Sold Out Wembley Stadium. He also explains how the band have stayed so strong after close to 30 years and not managed to go through 40 different members by now.
Podcast host Browny also takes a look at what’s going on with Tom Delonge and his return to Angels & Airwaves, the Splendour in the Grass lineup and Amy from Brisbane takes over with ‘Two Songs That Changed Me‘
