But which song would you choose? So hats off to Matt. The offers were there so we thought why not? But because a lot of those bands are from the area we came from, Oxford… And, you know, there are certainly elements of that sound that I really liked.

November 1, Adam has composed and performed the title track for the motion picture ‘California Solo’. I wish we really had won it! Yeah, we recorded all that by the lake. And the half of the album that was recorded in London was the day after playing the Raise show in London. So you both won. So it was fun to do that. Are you still an avid reader? Yeah, it sounds great.

an interview with Adam Franklin of Swervedriver, tour dates

Well, I think Mezcal Head was recorded in one go. And we kept him all the way to the last album.

So, yeah, I think there are demo cassette tapes knocking around somewhere back in Oxford of probably all the songs off Mezcal Head. We did it in Australia and then I think a couple of shows in the UK as well. Check out the dates here.
