Slaves

Slaves

Town Centre

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?'.
