The Rumble Strips - Charlie Waller on trumpets, performing with Mark Ronson, and Copenhagen vs Cuba

Jul 11, 2020, 05:00 AM
Charlie Waller was the lead singer of The Rumble Strips - a 00s indie band with a distinct sound thanks to their use of brass instruments. He talks us through their debut album Girls and Weather and follow-up Welcome to the Walk Alone, which they shaped with Mark Ronson.

Charlie also reflects on his messy departure from Vincent Vincent and the Villains, some wild nights in Cuba, and why the Rumbles' reunion for The Lightship Recordings didn't materialise into a full-on comeback.
