For those of us who believe rock music is repeating itself, Alpha Male Tea Party are a ray of light in the murky night. However, it’s ironic - given AMTP are one of a dwindling number of rock bands with something to say - that the trio are predominantly instrumental.
Hailing from the North West of England, they make an exhilarating, forward-thinking racket best evidenced on 2014’s second album, Droids – Matt’s favourite record from last year.
In this candid and refreshingly open exchange, Matt speaks to frontman/guitarist Tom Peters about an awkward childhood and finding his feet in music; the surprisingly healthy experimental heavy rock scene; and the serious reasons behind the band’s famed sense of humour.
