Buster Shuffle recently released I’ll Take What I Want. Jet Baker (piano, vocals) took some time to answer a few questions about the album, their latest music video, and more. Check it out below.
With the band being around for a decade now, how do you continue to develop and come up with new ideas for the music?
We write all the time, on the road, in hotels, wherever we can and so that helps keep pushing it forward and keeping it fresh. That helps.
What was the process like when you were working on I’ll Take What I Want?
We took a good while writing it about 2 years off and on as we were touring so much. The recording part we did fast. We cut the album in two days, vocals we did in a week and we mixed in just two days. We did it all fast so we captured the energy and rawness of the songs.
With a sounds that can’t be defined by one genre, which artists would you say have influenced the band the most?
The Clash, The Specials Ian Dury and the Blockheads are our home influences and also the likes of Little Richard and Fats Domino
Is there anywhere you’d like to tour that you haven’t made your way to just yet?
Yeah. Japan, South America and Australia.
Who do you work with on the music video for “I Don’t Trust A Word You Say”?
A friend of the band who offered to help out. We cut it fast one Sunday morning.
What can we expect to see from the band in 2018?
Lots of touring… we ‘ve just been announced for Punk Rock Bowling 2018 and we cant wait! See you there. Oi!
