Interview - WHAM BAM!

WHAM BAM! is a unique collaboration creating unfiltered rock and groove with catchy dual vocal harmonies. if you grew up in the grunge era and also dig old-school rock & roll, this is your jam.

Hi guys and welcome to this interview. How would you describe your sound?
catchy / spicy /groovy / gruncy. Our music lives up to our name - focusing on keeping it simple, groovy and catchy. We specialise in creating unique sonic ear worms that sneak up on your ear holes and before you know it, their having a little sing-along jam inside your brain and you can't help but join party.

- What do you write about? 
Personal live experiences, sometimes direct, sometimes more abstract. Our songs deal with more serious topics like love, loss, depression, anxiety, fears, hopes and dreams. But it's always packaged in fun and groovy music that keeps it light and interesting.

- What do you listen to when you are home? 
Any good music, regardless of genre. But we grew up on old-school rock & roll and the 90's grunge scene, so that inspires our spirit.

- Your favourite live performance so far? 
No live performances yet, formed during Covid and living on opposite sides of the world (South Africa and UK), but hopefully something can be organised in 2022.

- Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage
We record remotely in our own studios, sending files via cloud and each of us adding our own spices so no super funny moments yet. Nico has been making our recent fun lyric videos and he is figuring out some crazy animation tricks that we'll be trying out in future videos. We've had some good laughs coming up with all the cool and crazy things in our videos. But we've also been making music together since 1996, and there's been so many crazy memories we either struggled to remember or try hard to forget.

- Your favourite albums? 
Old - Anything Alice in Chains or Stone Temple Pilots, more recent - Jimmy Eat World, Weezer, Royal Blood

- A musician you would like to meet for a beer? 
Jerry Cantrell

- What would you ask backstage if you were the most important band on earth? 
To hang out with the other bands on the bill, and invite some of our fans backstage.

- What are your plans for the next future?
