COSMIC ROUNDUP - WAYNE ADAMS OF BIG LAD & PET BRICK
Hi Wayne, how are you?
I’m good mate, just got back from touring with Petbrick and a couple of dates with Big Lad
You’re a busy little sod in that studio of yours. What are the best recordings you’ve done this year which we can look forward to next year?
Yes indeed, loads of killer music is coming! New Bruxa Maria is killer, Casual Nun, Luminous Bodies, USA Nails all have records landing that I’ve done and are probably their strongest efforts. Black Shape have just finished a new one, Beggar, Black Helium, all amazing stuff, plus there is a couple more that I probably can’t mention yet! But yeah loads of great stuff!
You’re in a band with the drummer from Sepultura. How did that come about? Did you grow up listening to them? Are you still pinching yourself?
Haha, yes Iggor was in Sepultura, he saw Big Lad play and got in touch, and we kinda just stayed in touch as we found we had a pretty similar music taste! Yeah for sure Chaos AD was one of those records that definitely had an influence on me growing up when I was getting into heavy music! Nah it just feels very natural in a way although our musical paths to this point have been very different it kind of makes weird sense how we found each other I think!
Any plans for a new Big Lad release?
Yep we have just started recording a new record! It’s gonna be a bit different I think! Probably more raw than the last!
What was the best gig you played in 2019?
We played some bangers this year it’s impossible to pick one, but notable ones are gonna be
Petbrick album launch at the Shacklewell
Big lad at Bangface
Big lad at Arctangent
Big lad at supersonic
Petbrick at supernormal
Petbrick at LaGuessWho?
Petbrick at Visions in France
All equally nuts for different reasons!
Best gig you attended?
Really enjoyed The Bug at Laguesswho
Best festival you attended?
All of um, I think I did something silly like 20 this year!
What are your favourite releases from 2019?
I’ve only been listening to stuff that’s coming out in 2020 I think!! But Probably the latest Deaf Kid
What the hell are you up to next year?
More of the same! Petbrick have some exciting collabs with Deaf Kids and Uniform in the works, there will hopefully be a new Big Lad album, looks like I’m gonna be busy with festivals again! So yeah pretty much the same as this year, loads of playing, loads of recording and a load of coffee!
