Big Boy Bloater & The LiMiTs will be kicking off their UK tour in September in support of their brand new album Pills. 

Pills is the follow up to 2016’s hugely successful Luxury Hobo

Over the last two years the band have toured the UK to packed shows, headlined Wychwood Festival, pulled in new fans at Camden Rocks Festival, supported Joanne Shaw Taylor and The Quireboys and enjoyed “one of the most enjoyable” gigs they’ve ever done at Ramblin’ Man Fair in 2017 as well as this years Ramblin’ Man Fair as the main suport to headliners Gov’t Mule. Big Boy Bloater has already picked up fans in the shape of Imelda May and Jools Holland.

We caught up with Big Boy Boater and asked our five questions:

Current Mood:  Rock and Roll Star

Q1: Describe your band using another bands album title..  
The Very Best of Showaddywaddy
Q2: If you could steal credit for any great piece of music, What would it be and Why? White Christmas! Biggest selling song in the World. 50 million sold and rising. Think of the f****** money – I could finally get that bicycle I wanted.
Q3: Your latest release: What is the title, what was the least interesting part about making it and why?Latest album is called PILLS. The least interesting thing about making it was the amount of tea we drank in the studio. Why? Because drinking tea is boring!
Q4: Number 1 Albums of 2017: Keep, Bin or Give it to Muggle: 1, ‘GANG SIGNS & PRAYER’ by Stormzy, ‘GLOREY DAYS’ by LITTLE MIX and ‘÷’ by Ed Sheeran (bonus point for naming the Muggle) GANG SIGNS & PRAYER – would give to Stormzy and tell him to go away and think about what he has done. GLOREY DAYS – I would keep, gotta be worth something on Music Magpie one day. ÷ – I would bin. Ed Sheeran is a talented guy but he keeps turning out rubbish!
Q5: Taking your position in the band, what would your advice be for someone who’s looking to do the same thing? DON’T! Listen to your parents, stay in school and don’t do drugs!
