Mit ihrer treibenden Mischung aus Rock’n’Roll, Ska und Pop knüpfen Buster Shuffle nahtlos an die frühen Madness an und verwandeln jeden Gig in eine große Party. Als Support der Broilers konnten sie schon einige größere Bühnen in Deutschland kennenlernen, nun spielen die Londoner am Freitag, den 18.1. im Jugendhaus Hallschlag. Frontmann und Pianist Jet Baker hat unseren Fragebogen ausgefüllt.

What was the most wonderful gig you ever played?
At the moment it’s always the next gig because it’s an exciting time watching the crowds get bigger and bigger…

Where would you absolutely love to play?
It would be nice to play on the main stage at Glastonbury one day…

Please describe your worst studio experience.
All good experiences so far although we once lost a day’s worth of recording when the hardware failed which wasn’t very nice…

What would your music sound like if Elvis had never existed?
Well, you could argue that without Elvis there would have been no rock music and then maybe things would be different, but I think someone else would have emerged to take his place eventually…

The title of the book that touched you most is…
Empire Of The Sun by J G Ballard

Which ringtone do you use?
Just the standard ring that comes with the phone…

The most beautiful love song ever is called…
‘It Must Be Love’ (the version by Madness)

Which song (except your own songs) do you know by heart?
I’m not so good at remembering the lyrics but I know quite a few David Bowie songs pretty well…

Which Beatles song deserves a decent cover (by you)?
‘In My Life’ is a wonderful song…

Which TV show is essential?
The Wire was great. Breaking Bad is good at the moment…

Please tell us your favourite joke.
Not my favourite but it’s the only one I can think of at the moment. What’s the difference between 365 shags in 365 days and a Formula 1 racing tire? One’s a Goodyear and the other is a very good year…

Describe the perfect stage outfit.
The ultimate stage outfit would have to involve a cape and maybe some kind of mask.

Your favourite candy?
Galaxy bar

What would you be today if you had not become a musician?
A virgin

In which band would you like to play (except your own)?
Madness

What’s your favourite instrument?
Keyboards and guitars are the most versatile and, as a result, probably the best as well…

The greatest musical genius (dead or alive)?
Keith Moon, what a legend… Or maybe John Entwistle…

The most beautiful woman in show business?
Charlize Theron

How would you spend an unexpected gift of 1000 Euro (you’re not allowed to invest in alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, holidays or prostitution)?
I’d buy a new keyboard of course…
