Redstar73 Blog: Please can you introduce your band. When was it started? What about your name?
Almighty Uprisers: Started in 2015, the name sounded the best from a list of half a dozen most bands create before settling on a name. There’s the political notions and the drive to “rise up” that we all posses but few do anything about, unfortunately.
Redstar73 Blog: What are your plans for the future?
Almighty Uprisers: Write new material, Record and tour/play live
Redstar73 Blog: How is the scene in your area?
Almighty Uprisers: It’s survives and it’s thrives. Like most scenes it fluctuates as bands form and bands move on or disband. There’s a distinct lack of ska/reggae bands but definitely the scene and interest to support it. Like most scenes everyone looks out for each other, despite what type of genre you play. it’s like a family.
Redstar73 Blog: How important is for you the DIY idea and politics?
Almighty Uprisers: DIY is a tremendously important to us and is the backbone of what drives the band. There’s very little help from outside sources and unless you’re incredibly lucky, it’s what you do that determines your success, nothing is handed to you on a plate. Politics influence everyone and everything around us whether you like it or not. Everyone has a voice, why not use it.
Redstar73 Blog: Give us your Top5 Punk, Reggae & Ska songs.
Almighty Uprisers: I think it would be sweet to end up with a list of not run of the mill/well known tracks here as opposed to anarchy in U.K. – sex pistols etc so it makes for an interesting read. Obviously it’s impossible (or at least we find) to have an ultimate favourite song in any genre so a cool list of tracks people may not have heard will be better for the reader. Here’s three from me as a starter:
Ska: Dry Acid – The Upsetters
Reggae: Jah Jah Give Us Life To Live – Wailing Souls
Punk: Tube Disasters – flux of pink indians.
Scott/Lead Guitar/Backing vocals
Ska: Hooligans – Wailers.
Reggae: Come into my parlour – Bleachers.
Punk: Big a little a – Crass
Ska: soon you’ll be gone – blues busters
Reggae: talking blues – bob Marley and the wailers
Punk: cheat – the clash
Ska – toots and the maytals, 54-46 whats my number.
Reggae – Bob Marley – iron lion zion
Punk – iggy pop – The passenger
Ska: Skatalites “Sakaravan”.
Reggae: Culture “Natty Never Get Weary”
Punk: Subhumans “Animal”
Redstar73 Blog: Last words!
Almighty Uprisers: Plug the facebook/social.
Look out for us.
Destroy Fascism and Unite.
