Rok 'n' Roll at Rokit Presents: Peter Parker's Rock 'N' Roll Club
Rok 'n' Roll continues this week with another great band, and as we progress into this trippy odyssey of music and vintage style, let us introduce you to another talented duo: Peter Parker's Rock 'n' Roll Club!
Here's are some of the answers that Peter and Sakura have shared with us about Rock'n'Roll and their inspiration.
ROCK 'N' ROLL IS:
P:About the spirit of Rock'n'Roll. It's not just about Bill Haley's Rock Around The Clock, but the music art and fashion that is inspired by Rock'n'Roll from the 1950s to now.
P:I have a lot of music idols and these are only a selection. Mozart for melody; Glenn Miller for arrangement; Elvis Presley for vocals; Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, ZZ Top and AC/DC for guitar riffs; John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton for songwriting; Mick Jagger for performance; Charlie Watts for drum arrangement; The Ramones for attitude; Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth for lyrics.
S: Madonna; Prince; Michael Jackson.
P: Johnny Ramone. I get the same haircut the same way as him. It's how I pay tribute to The Ramones.
S: My style icons are the people on the street.
GO TO GEAR ON STAGE:
P: Black leather jacket, sometimes my sleeveless black leather jacket, spare t-shirts, a couple of pair of jeans and a pair of converse.
S: Brightly coloured and sometimes sparkly tops, necklaces, baggy trousers and nice sturdy drum shoes.
THIS SUMMER IS GOING TO BE ABOUT:
P: The sunshine in Soho and warm weather!
S: Not really looking forward to anything, just the usual.
IDEAL 6 GUESTS FOR THE ULTIMATE DINNER PARTY:
P: Jesus; Socrates; The Beatles
S: Britney Spears; Elton John and 4 of my friends.
Peter's current mood is mostly described by the lyrics of their song: I Got No Money
