Imagine for a moment that you don’t live in the United States (for those of you outside of America, it should be a fairly easy task). Now picture your first trip visiting the States is a stop in the middle of Texas during a giant music festival. And Hatcham Social frontman Toby Kidd thought television exaggerated the American lifestyle.
Just as the band was starting to get used to french fries (chips) being served with every sandwich they order, Toby and keyboardist Jerome Watson took some time after their performance at the Levi’s®/FADER Fort to speak to me about their first trip across the pond and their recently TBD / Fierce Panda-released LP, You Dig The Tunnel I’ll Hide The Soil. Like my interview with The Strange Boys, their demeanor makes me like them more than their music ever could, but their pretty good at that whole band thing too.
