The Latitude interviews – I Am Kloot

Many people were delighted to see John Bramwell, better known as I Am Kloot, gain some long-overdue recognition last year. The Mercury-nominated Sky At Night was a continuation of their darkly attractive worldview, more fully realised and hinting at the possibility of a larger audience to match their critical acclaim. We caught up with John to ask him his thoughts on the band’s appearance at the` Latitude Festival.

 

Who is your ‘must see’ performance at Latitude this year?

 

I hear Adam Buxton does a very good turn – gotta see that.

 

Not including items used in your performance, what is your ‘must-have’ festival item?

 

A skeleton key so I can get into the JCB digger that I sleep in every time I play latitude.

 

Do you have anything special planned for your performance at Latitude?

 

We are playing a lot of the songs from our last album. Our band is an eight-piece now instead o f the usual three-piece – looking forward to the bigger sound.

 

If you could have anyone (dead or alive) to introduce you onstage who would it be?

 

Bill Hicks – a man of rare insight and a fearless attitude.

 

Having been to Latitude before, what was your favourite memory?

 

I enjoyed seeing Nick Cave get tangled in a guitar lead and without looking at it kicked it away as if he was being attacked by a snake. A delicious violence.

 

Latitude is…

 

…the festival that all your bloody mates want a guest list for.

I Am Kloot play the Word Stage at Latitude, Henham Park, Southwold Suffolk 14th-17th July.
