Fast Five: The Greasy Slicks

Carrie Humphries


When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

Around 4 or 5 years ago. We were all in different bands but started casually jamming together and stuck with it. Originally we wanted to be a function band but struggled to learn other people’s songs (too many chords…), so we tried writing our own.

How would you describe your music?

Loud. It’s rock and roll. We listen to all the best music from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, along with some royalty free karaoke covers for inspiration. We’re just three guys breaking a sweat and making a racket.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

Playing lots and lots of shows, finishing our album and then playing even more shows across the UK and Europe. Also, we have been creating new scales and trying to incorporate them into blues. For instance, something we like to call “the blues scale”.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

A woman, because there aren’t any in our band. Tina Turner, perhaps…

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

The Greasy Slicks debut album (but it needs finishing).
