London band Enamel: a Mongrel child of Wham and Foo Fighters
Enamel is a five-piece band from London. Drummer Chris Egglestone discusses the band's sound, who Enamel would like to share a bill with, and what the members would be doing if they were not making music.
Describe your sound for someone who has never heard the band.
Raw bass and drums grooves with 'Springsteen-esque' guitar together with melodious vocals and intricate keyboards. Sounds wank...A mongrel child of Wham and the Foo Fighters.
How did Enamel come together?
Four out of the five members have been playing music since school days, thrashing out bad versions of Cream and early Radiohead songs. Then Tim (the singer) joined in 2004 and it's been lots of fun since.
Why should Enamel be in my heavy rotation?
You'll enjoy the disco.
If you could put together a bill with three other artists/bands (active or defunct), with whom would you share the bill?
Ultravox, The Cure & Sting (the lute album).
If you could write and perform a song with one artist, who would it be? Why?
Beyonce.. You would definately know that her band would have the chops to do anything you gave to them. We could provide the raw rock soul.
What would you be doing if you weren't making music?
All of us have different ideas but it would hopefully involve something creative.
