Whilst they embark on a few live dates and with the release of their “The Legend of Banjo Billy” EP we posed a few questions to FLING.

Q. How did you all meet?
We met in a space capsule in the centre of Bradford

Q. Where does the name come form?
It’s a word that means a short burst of excitement

Plinky plonk donkle dink cracka bang bang, bit of old pop music, put it on the old grammar phone!


He plays the banjo like you wish you could.

Q. For anyone heading to Live @ Leeds, where and when can they find you? and what can they expect from your live show?
Leeds Beckett 1, 17:00, expect all of the above!

Q. Who is Banjo Billy? and what makes him legendary?
He’s got arms, legs, fingers and toes, eyes, ears, a mouth an a nose. He plays the banjo like you wish you could.

Q. What are you future plans? and is there anything else you want to plug?
Play some music, write some music, release some music, play some music outside, play some music inside. Listen to our music! Next Tuesday, Glasgow Hug an Pint, next Wednesday, Manchester The Castle.
