Whilst on the road in Seattle, Doves drummer Andy Williams gave a phone interview to the Detroit Free Press, and had great things to say about the band’s U.S. fanbase…
“We get reviews saying ‘This band should be much bigger than it is. They should be playing stadiums,’ ” Williams says. “But the people who get this band really get it.”
“We’ve had people flying in from New York, and others trailing us down the West Coast, spending a lot of money and travel time to follow the band around. To have people willing to do that, especially in this economy, makes us feel incredibly lucky.”
Andy recently spoke with L.A.-based lifestyle magazine, LA2DAY, whom have published a very short interview on their site, here.
“We feel like we’re playing our best right now,” Andy explained. The band’s live experience features arrangements of classic songs, like the closer, “Caught By The River,” which is a real treat for the true fans. “That’s half the fun of it,” Andy continued. “You don’t wanna hear exactly how it is on record, you wanna hear a live version of it.”
We still have more live recordings from the past month to bring you, but as a change of pace, here’s Andy discussing the records which influenced him, with BBC Radio One’s Session Obsession. I’m unsure of the original broadcast date, but I’m guessing it was just after the release of The Last Broadcast.
