So as I sit at the laptop trying to work out what on earth I am going to write about, I’m currently sat listening to an album that I used to sit and do my homework to when I was at secondary school because it ‘made me concentrate’ – apparently. (Smashing Pumpkins – Machina/the machines of god)
So as we look at releasing our 2nd album, my first full album in the band (as I only played on 4 songs on the Neurotica album), it does make you think about the journey that we have all been on together.
Firstly, there’s the introduction of me, having audition to pass, passed it, writing ‘Shock and Bad Taste’ together (first time the 4 of us...

DRAG have always been an independent band. Inspired by not just the music, but also the DIY ethic of the 90’s grunge and Riot Grrrl era, it is no surprise that we decided to employ this same ethos when it came to our debut album! For those of you who don’t know, Kickstarter is a ‘crowdfunding’ platform – this means that instead of approaching record labels for money, we could approach our fans directly to help us to fund the album – which means we could provide a high quality product, but keep our DIY roots and full control of our music!
Our Kickstarter Campaign page, where you can see the rewards we offered is here:
