1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or came out just like that?

JIM: I was in a band with someone who transitioned. I started to write a musical about it called Mrs. Beckett, I write a few of the songs and thought "This needs a real band, not a fucking musical, and Mrs. Beckett became that band.

DAVE: Jim's mysterious imagination

PETE: Jim’s best at explaining the name. It’s a great name. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

JIM: Guitar riffs are what the angels play in heaven. The choir invisible sings songs based on guitar riffs. Guitar rock n roll is in my DNA, I’ve tried other stuff and it just depresses me.

DAVE: I always loved this sound. Jim asked me if I knew a drummer that would be into this kind of thing. And I did.

PETE: You can’t beat a riff based power trio! And with the quality of our songs, it’s a potent mix 

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

DAVE: Now, the one I'm playing with. Back in the day, Free, Jimi Hendrix Experience

PETE: It keeps changing over the years it’s been AC/DC, Queen, Maiden, The Who, The Jam. I suppose Bruce Springsteen and his E Street band will always be there. But there are loads.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

JIM: The fact that life is so fucked up.

DAVE: Well it certainly ain't the bank manager.

PETE: That’s Jim’s department. He’s got the secrets. When they’re presented to us we keep it simple. Let the groove and song shine
