The 23's Q&A

Your name: 
Blair Ramsay.

Where are you from? 
Musselburgh just outside Edinburgh, Scotland.

Name of band: 
The 23's.

Who else is in your band? 
Ben Clark (rhythm and lead guitarist), Lee Anderson (bass) and Michael Ferguson (drums). My role is frontman, rhythm and lead guitarist. 

How would you describe yourselves and your music? 
As a band i would describe ourselves as confident and open. We are always up for making a scene about things and that's what we intend to do in future. Our music comes across a few different types of genres so we never really give ourselves a specific one but our mixes are rock n' roll, indie and possibly alternative. 

Who are your main influences musically?
We take a lot of influence from the likes of Oasis, Libertines, Kasabian, BRMC etc. 

What do you hope to achieve in music?
What we hope to achieve is certainly a record deal at some point but right now all that matters is getting our music heard. It's too early to make a call on our future cause we have only been a band for two and a half years, but we certainly dream of playing the big stages with the big names. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
We have a few highlights but selling out Electric Circus and Cabaret Voltaire in Edinburgh when we started as a band were big moments, so early in our time as a band as well. Also playing our first show in Glasgow at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut at the end of last year supporting The Blue Dawns was a big highlight. Definitely a band worth looking out for. Nice bunch of lads too.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
There's been a few gigs where myself and Ben have got completely fucked before even getting on stage and having a poor gig because of it. We are still bad for it to this day but we have controlled it a lot better now.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Our latest single She's Trouble is a big favourite for our fans. It's 7:04 long but doesn't disappoint.
