We're loving this new album by The Guy Hamper Trio! Who's in the band sunshine?
Mainly myself on guitar, Julie on bass, Wolf on drums, and of course Jamie on Hammond. A great bonus is Thee Headcoats with Bruce and Tub guest as rhythm section on a track or two.
You and James Taylor go back a long way. Do you remember how you first met?
The Prisoners were a young group who played with us (the Milkshakes) in the early 1980s. One day they turned up with an organ player, Jamie. Jamie used to then borrow my Selmer guitar amp to play through.
You've revisited a few old classics on this album, and given them a true makeover. How would you describe The Guy Hamper Trio's sound?
I guess there must be a derogatory term for it but I might need some help finding it. In the very early days of The James Taylor Quartet (Wolf was their drummer back then), I was in the Natural Born Lovers (A blues group with Big Russ and Sexton Ming). We used to be the support for them. I really liked their sound and I guess The Guy Hamper Trio is not a million miles from that blues-influenced, film soundtrack vibe, man. There you made me say 'man'. Next thing you know I will be saying 'cool!' Let's just say it's a wizard sound, Jamie is such a great player.

Prior to this album The Guy Hamper Trio's sole release was the 'Polygraph Test' 7' from 2009. Why such a big gap?
It takes time for all of us to get all our solders in line. 'Get on with it mush! And trifle not, your time is but short!'

What inspired the album's title track All The Poisons In the Mud?
It's actually the title of a novel I've been writing, and rewriting, over the past 12 years, and is taken from a quote from I Claudius by Robert Graves - a formative influence on me as a 15 year old.
