Brighton based punk-rockers The Jackdaw stopped by to chat about their bewitching second single ‘Tales of a Blonde Wig’, why music is the right decision and Queens of the Stone Age.
To anyone new to your music, name 3 words that best describe your sound.

What would be your dream support gig?
Supporting Queens of the Stone Age at Ally pally would be nuts. The best band and the best venue – I respect the ‘no seats’ policy.
What made you decide music is the right path for you?

So yeah right from the very first gig, the music has been something we all wanted to take a lot more seriously.
What’s your writing process like? Do music or lyrics come first?
