Rock'n'roll is the wild wild west. Isaac Holman is well aware of this. On an unassuming week day, he finds himself in the middle of the Nevada desert by a ranch, surrounded by rock formations and dirt tracks. A sign reads 'NO HIKING'. As his bandmate Laurie Vincent marches beyond the sign with an acoustic guitar in hand (“I haggled this down from $60 to $50 in a Vegas pawn shop”, he boasts), Isaac gets nervous. He's terrified of snakes. “I don't know why anyone would keep a snake as a pet,” he says. Recently Isaac's been thinking of getting a duck as a pet. “Or a bat, but you can't keep bats as pets.” I don't think you can keep ducks as pets either. But rules haven't stopped either of these men in the past. Slaves has been built on a rejection of rules and it's served them well since the release of their Mercury nominated debut album 'Are You Satisfied?'.
