After two excellent EPs, The Lions Rampant's full length album, 'It's Fun to Do Bad Things' (released next week), is a masterstroke of snarling, primal Garage Rock with extra helpings of deep fried Soul. "I can definitely see a change from the beginning to these songs," Stuart MacKenzie says. "This album is a lot more diverse than the EPs."
I recently sat down with Stuart MacKenzie from The Lions Rampant in a semi-professional setting (The Comet) to discuss the band's new album, 'It's Fun to Do Bad Things.' But instead of focusing on leather pants, his Sammy Hagar-esque blond ambition and Rock & Roll, the convo veered off the record into his love life and other things he doesn't want his mom to read about.
