Black Orchid Empire Interview Part 2 1/3/17


Described as Hard Rock with a soft underbelly, we saw the awesome Black Orchid Empire headline at Camden's Monarch in early February. At yet another Camden Rocks showcase, The Monarch is a real rock pub, a microcosm of today's music business as bands bartered equipment with each other during their sound checks, whilst we were interviewing BOE consisting of New Zealander Dave Ferguson (bass/vocals), American Billy Freedom (drums) and Brit Paul Visser (vocals/guitar) backstage beforehand. In fact the interview was so good and long that we split it into two parts - the second and final part is today's Track Of The Day where the guys talk to us here about, amongst other things, guitar heroes, production, music videos, festivals and Petula Clark!
