Today’s Creative Sessions band being featured throughout the day was Boxcars, a recently formed 5-piece alternative band from Southend. We heard two of their songs during my show – The Road and Promises – along with part of Bob Simpson’s interview with them shortly after recording their session back in April. Bob started by asking them to introduce themselves:[audio:https://www.phoenixfm.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Boxcars-interview-PART-ONE.mp3|titles=Boxcars interview – PART ONE]
Bob also asked why they chose the name Boxcars:[audio:https://www.phoenixfm.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Boxcars-interview-PART-TWO.mp3|titles=Boxcars interview – PART TWO]
We also caught up with Bob ahead of this afternoon’s Summer Fair at the Woodlands School in Warley, where Phoenix were to be providing the musical entertainment. I know everyone keeps saying it – but now all we need is a bit of summer weather!
