A few weeks ago Gin Annie graced the shores of England’s south coast to play their first socially distanced gig at Madding Crowd in Bournemouth.
Hailing from Wolverhampton in the Midlands, the heavy rockers have been making waves with their late 80’s Sunset Strip sound which has seen them support the likes of Deadline Ritual, Last In Line and Ugly Kid Joe.
They’re also familiar faces on the Uk festival circuit with Hard Rock Hell, Winters End and Ramblin’ Man Fair slots firmly under their belts.
After the boys had finished sound checking for their show, I stole them away for a chat about how 2020 was set to be their biggest year yet, who they’re named after, how they feel about the lack of support for the music industry and also to try and get some dirt on album number two, which is currently in the making.
As we were setting up to interview the band we were all aware the British government were preparing to announce that England would be going back into it’s second national lockdown in an attempt to control Covid-19 cases across the country.
As we finished the interview the news broke that lockdown 2.0 would start in a matter of days.
Despite everyone’s best efforts life would be back on hold temporarily and live music events at a standstill once again.
That night Gin Annie put on a fantastic show and we rocked out as hard as you possibly can at a socially distanced gig!
