I recently had a chat to Richard (the lead singer of Retro Dizzy) about the beer festival, beer and a few other things. This is what he had to say:

What do you think are the major differences between the Gauteng and the Western Cape?

The temperature and the sense of impending doom. The Western Cape has the ocean so it wins.

(Good point, but at least Gauteng has water, so that has to count for something – I think)

You are playing at your first ever Capital Craft festival, what can people expect from your set?

We actually going to be doing a set that delves way deeper into our albums, doing songs we haven’t played for awhile and possibly some news tracks we are busy working on.

(Thanks, us Gauteng folk are looking forward to it)

Do you think that one of you will ever become a Seaboat Captain and what is the first thing you would you do if you became one?

Wake up, have my coffee and my pipe and then prepare for a full day of honest hard work.

(Sounds about right, just make sure you get a parrot to enhance your captain image…)

Who would win in a celebrity deathmatch between Popeye the Sailor and Long John Silver and why?

Jesus, he always wins. Ahem.

(Well played, well played…)

What do you like the most about beer?

The sense of freedom it brings. That this decision, be it good or bad, is mine and I have the choice to do what I want, whenever I want. And also getting gesuip.

(I agree, life is all about making choices and beer helps…)

What is your favorite drinking song?

“Jumpin’ Jack Flash” by The Rolling Stones is our anthem. Hell yeah brother.

(Good choice, that is one kick-ass tune – it always gets the party started)

I’d like to thank Retro Dizzy for this interview. I wish them all of the best with their set at Capital Craft 2018.
