A conversation with Boy Azooga June 13, 2018 by Rob Hakimian I wrote some dreadful songs when I was about 14. I remember I was obsessed with Nirvana, and I used to have my Nirvana chord book. My mum’s a clarinet teacher, and she had a little tape recorded that she used to help her pupils to record stuff, and I used to go in there and sing on the cassettes Nirvana covers. I found a bunch the other day, and I used to have this really cheesy American accent, I sounded so bad. I was writing songs then. I can’t even remember what they were about, just really terrible bedroom poetry; very very earnest and very depressing [Laughs]. Had a lovely time getting to know Davey Newington of Boy Azooga - here's our charming chat.
