THE BOSS – No School Blazers (interview)

Thirty years in the making, No School Blazers, a punky power pop gem.  Sweet Sweet Music talked to Danny McAllister about being back! 

What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?

It was great to be back in the studio recording again after many years with the original 80s Boss lineup.

There can be a tendancy to go over the top in the studio so we play live to get the feel and sound right.

I always enjoy getting the guitar sounds and blending the vocals.We are very happy with the album.

If we want to know you, which song do we have to listen to? And why?

I like all the tracks.The newer songs for me standout because they are a bit different from the older tracks

So Butterfly, Magic Carpet, Seashell. It’s still the old Boss though, punky power pop.

The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?  

We were never darlings of the music companies. Our timing was out. We were too late.

There were a couple of record companies in 87-88 that looked like they might sign us but it never materialised and here we are.

Who is the best musician in the world nobody has heard of yet? 

Best musician the worlds never heard of…dunno

I’m the best songwriter I know lol.

She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mix tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?

Bit old for dating mate… 

I have been married for years.

I’d just put on what I felt like … if she didn’t like it … too bad.

My tastes vary a lot…if I’m getting ready for a gig I like to get in the mood … something loud and stomping

That could be Slade..Little Richard..Sex Pistols..The Beatles..The kinks..The Who..Dr Fellgood..Tamla.

What’s up for the next couple of months?
