Q&A Scene: Slim Tim McLean & Blues Power

Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
Our debut single is We are all alone. It is from our upcoming record Generation Nothing. We are all alone is a spiralling, twisted pulsating piece of out of body mayhem. I tell of the secrets of blues & of the trials and tribulations of Blues Power being a genre unto themselves. It’s punk rock intensity with a real genuine disregard for melody. Some have said if Hendrix was alive right now he may have a song similar to this.? Produced by Slim Tim & acclaimed producer Brian Campeau.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why? 

Some kind of kale, quinoa, coconut oil, space cake cause it can really mess with your mind.

Which song resonates most strongly and why?
Different people like different songs. However the tune Got a lot seems to resonate with the people we have musically touched. It is a well funky, but well heavy song that tells the story of my blonde Telecaster, which is called Blues Power Da Guitar. How once it was a seed, It grew into a tree, Old Leo(Fender) cut her down, That’s the sound of Blues Power. I also goes on to sing it don’t matter how much you want cause Blues Power is a embarrassment of riches and there is more than enough to go round. While this enthralling coming of age story of guitar is going on, Blues Power lady singer Bhavani is creating a shamanistic chant of the words Blues Power that offers some insight into our love of the blissfully vocalising of Beach Boys and Mummas & The Pappas. Veronic

Any on the road anecdotes?
Nothing that needs to see the light of day in a
public forum.

Where do you draw inspiration from?
We draw inspiration from a variety of music. Blue Oyster Cult, Bukka White, Skip James, Howlin’ Wolf, John Carpenter, Heart, James Gang, George Jones, Roger Miller, David Lynch, George Clinton, Black Sabbath, Skip James, Cheap Trick, Mountain, Canned Heat.

What’s next for you?
Well I am is also a film maker and at the moment putting energy into the videos that accompany some of the songs.

Everything has created visuals for it off the forth coming record. All up comes in at about a hour of madness. It is filmed and edited just getting some tweaks now. It has acting too. This visual stuff has also been worked up as the visual foundation of live show via projection.

What’s your scene?
