2 Tony Allen interviews promoting Rocket Juice And The Moon

Tony Allen, the drummer in Damon's projects The Good, The Bad & The Queen and recently Rocket Juice And The Moon, has given a couple of interviews in the past week promoting Rocket Juice And The Moon.

First there was an interview with website thequietus here and you can also read the Damon extract by clicking 'Read More' below.

Secondly, Tony talked on BBC6Music radio yesterday on the Gilles Peterson show. You can 'listen again' to the show online here for a week. The Tony Allen segment is from 1:32:00 to 2:3:00 and the Damon-related discussion is at the start. You can also click 'Read More' below for a transcript. Perhaps most interestingly, Tony mentions that RJATM were originally set to play dates in 'April' (the Mojo magazine article about RJATM had said they were going to meet up in March for preparation for more live dates). Currently Flea is on tour with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. He would have had March 17th - April 26th inclusive off from the tour originally but on January 11th there was the announcement that RHCP member Anthony Kiedis had broken his foot and the RHCP dates had to be rescheduled, leaving Flea which much less time off around the time the proposed RJATM dates were due to take place.
