One Question Interviews: Felix Hagan

SPB: What song (by any artist) has the best use of bongos?

Felix: That would be “Funky Nassau,” the version by The Blues Brothers. Never has bongoing been so succinctly demonstrated as a musical force. It’s in the second Blues Brothers film that I saw when I was ten, and it made me want to never sleep until I could play songs as well as they could. Plus it made me drench my first hundred songs in a whole school orchestra’s worth of percussion. Bongos forever. On a bongo-based sidenote, check out the 1959 film Expresso Bongo. It features a young Cliff Richard playing a character called “Bongo Herbert,” and is also a timeless parable of the music industry.  

Also, you may be interested to know that our new single just came out. If you fancied featuring it in any way that would be absolutely wonderful:
