An exclusive interview with the Beirut-based blues-rock-revival band The Wanton Bishops and Beats and Breath founder Jackson Allers. It’s Part 1 of an interview THAT WAS released in early 2013, and was conducted in december 2012 right before the launch of their first album – sleep with the lights on.

Voice-over introduction : “A musical anathema from Beirut rises like a sweaty, humid late August day in Biloxi, Mississippi or Houston, Lake Charles, New Orleans, Gulfport, or Huntsville. Stomping music. Real humid. Real raw. Two musicians. Two guitars. A Gibson Epiphone. A Fender Telecaster. One harmonica. Effects pedals. One banjo. They are The Wanton Bishops. Bred in Beirut. Established in 2011. They’ve crafted a powerful underground following in Lebanon….”
