I Went To School With Plastic Jeezus! (Interview)
In something of a first, I was actually in the same class as one of my guests this week, as I actually took A-Level Religious Studies with Simon! Yes, I went to school with Plastic Jeezus! Interview:
This week I'm chatting with Simon and Aaron - collectively known as musical comedy duo "Plastic Jeezus". There's lots to talk about, including how they got their start, their musical backgrounds, their award-winning shows and their attention-grabbing performances at ukulele festivals up and down the land.
But it turns out that Simon and I were actually in the same class at school together and haven't seen each other for over 20 years so there's also a fair amount of chat about GCSE music lessons, underage drinking, and the famous Bournemouth music venue, Mr. Smith's!
If you haven't heard of Plastic Jeezus before, do yourself a favour and check them out - they're hilarious, and they're going to be huge. The video E for Effort, which we discuss briefly in the interview, is a great place to start.
