The Kundalini Genie Q&A

Your name:
Robbie Wilson.

Where are you from?
Glasgow/Cumbernauld, Scotland.

Name of band:
The Kundalini Genie.

Who else is in your band?
Julia McTiernan.

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
Psychedelic blues and experimental electric Indian classical music.

Who are your main influences musically?
We both have many influences in music and too many to name but for this project our main influences are Ravi Shankar and George Harrison, for our psychedelic blues stuff The Sizlacks are a massive influence and so is The Black Keys' album 'Thickfreakness' and a lot of White Stripes stuff and going back to 50's blues and such.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
A complete revolution in the music scene.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
A solo sitar gig where there was maybe 30-50 people and everyone was dead silent and I was playing electric sitar and there was a real magic in the air, every bend and flourish was captivating the audience and there was a deep spiritual connection.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Not a lot really, maybe a stolen microphone.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
It's hard because we have two main styles and both are so different. On one hand you have electric sitar and ambient guitar and the other you have electric fuzz guitar and drums. We have an electric sitar song which is a sarcastic take on Anton Newcombe's 'Pol Pot's Pleasure Penthouse' called 'Raving Ravi's Raging Ravioli' which is a 13-minute sitar piece.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?
On Facebook and Twitter under The Kundalini Genie and bandcamp under the same alias

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
