Racking up appearances at Download, Hevy Fest and as support for pop-punk heavyweights, Blink-182, it’s certainly true to say that 2012 has been a bumper year for Essex’s own The Jellycats. Their wholly British brand of ska punk, whilst reminiscent of a glut of trumpet toting companions, charms with a rather distinctive Cockney, cheeky chap flavour, although tackling some surprisingly weighty issues such as drug abuse and political turmoil, making ‘When I Do’ a release which is undeniably characteristic.
Now that Slam Dunk is out of the way and Download is happening this weekend, this year’s Red Bull Bedroom Jam festival line-up have now got a bit of experience behind them to tackle the many opportunities that will no doubt be presented to them. We caught up with Essex based rockers The Jellycats to talk about it all:
