Johnny Borrell: Big Bands Take Things Too Seriously
September 30, 2010
Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell has accused big bands of getting “too serious about things”.
The singer is currently recording the group's follow-up to 2008's 'Slipway Fires' and said he had adopted a care-free approach to the record.
“You get very self important and rock and roll is not worth taking too seriously,” he said.
“It's gonna be my fourth album but I want it to be like a debut album because I think that's where it is at."
Borrell told XFM that the as-yet-untitled effort would be like a “party album” and contain the “energetic rock and roll” of Razorlight's early sound.
Meanwhile, Borrell play a one-off gig at a charity shop in London last night (September 29) as part of Oxfam's month-long Oxjam events.
As with other recent shows, the singer was once again backed by a band that included none of Razorlight's original line-up.
