Stay Thirsty Media has a great interview with the Legendary Shack Shakers front man Colonel JD Wilkes. It it the Colonel dicusses his new movie Seven Signs, and the latest LSS release “Swamp Blood.” A sample:
Do you feel like you are becoming more popular in the mainstream media?
JD: Yeah, I feel like weâ€™re sort of maintaining. Weâ€™re sort of a staple on the scene that people can rely on. You know we never got a major label deal, so we couldnâ€™t really coast on that momentum. We had to build our own momentum by creating the legend thatâ€™s in our name. We have to toot out own horn more. We have to work harder, tour harder, scream louder because we donâ€™t have big bucks behind us. We just have a lot of road miles and blood and guts and sweat invested in this , thatâ€™s what drives us. Thatâ€™s what makes us more authentic . Thatâ€™s what gives us more credibility than some flash in the pan, you know, emo band that here today gone tomorrow . We plan to age with this thing as we go and it will morph into who knows what the next record, cause itâ€™s a living, breathing thing, like the Constitution of the United States. Itâ€™s a living document. Itâ€™s alive!
