To celebrate the release of Blue Planet Eyes, the long-awaited debut LP from The Preatures (go buy it, it’s awesome), I’m reposting my chat with Preatures drummer, sample pad trigger man, songwriter and all around good dude Luke Davison. Luke sat down with me a few months ago for a chat about the classic 1962 debut LP from legendary groove merchants Booker T and the MGs - Green Onions.
Along the way, we break down classic tracks “Green Onions” and “Twist and Shout”, talk about the accidental creation of the band, how the MGs songwriting process parallels The Preatures on songs like “Is This How You Feel?”, Luke’s work in R&B band The Fabulous Rumble’ators, why simplicity is the hardest thing to pull off and how music ends up in Viagra commercials.
