The Brew – Pre-Tour Chat with Bassist, Tim Smith

This item was published in the mag’s former incarnation, ‘NMNM’, during January 2018.

After touring extensively in Europe, The Brew bring their brand of good old-fashioned balls-to-the-wall rock to The Bodega on February 16th. I spoke to bassist, Tim Smith the day before their upcoming UK tour.

Stewart
Afternoon Tim – how are you doing?

Tim Smith
All good mate ready to rock ‘n’ roll from tomorrow morning!

Stewart
Awesome! Looking forward to it?

Tim Smith
Yes – always looking forward to hitting the road. That’s what this band is about – we are a live band and that’s where we are at our best. Some bands prefer it in the studio, but not The Brew.

Stewart
I’m personally the other way around, but it’s obvious from what I’ve read about you that you love the live side!

Tim Smith
Yes indeed, a couple of years ago we were voted in the top three live acts in Europe by Eclipsed magazine – one of the leading rock ‘n’ roll magazines in Germany!

Stewart
That must feel good!

Tim Smith
Well awards are nice it’s a recognition that people do appreciate and understand what you are trying to achieve.

Stewart
Yea, absolutely, it’s always good to get recognition from your peers! So, tell us a bit about The Brew.
