New Scottish hip-hop outfit Young Fathers mix up an interesting and fun-loving blend of power pop and r ‘n’ b to make them stand-out as one of the most exciting new bands around. We caught up with them after their performance at The Edge Festival.

According to their myspace profile: The excitement of making music to this group of 20 year old ping pong fanatics was like making convulsive motions whilst standing on a thin surface of glass on the roof of a 300 million dollar condo in the Hollywood Hills.

They performed at Cabaret Voltaire, sharing a bill with Unicorn Kid, in Edinburgh. We found the band to be in high spirits and a jovial mood when we met in Edinburgh for a chat about producing the Young Fathers sound, the live set-up and their forthcoming debut album.


This gig was recorded using a Line 6 UX2 audio interface, MacBook Pro and Audacity. The interviews were recorded using Line 6 BackTrack+Mic portable recorders.
