61: The Maccabees - Felix White on the story behind award-winning albums, electric live shows, and indie-cricket crossovers!
The Boys in the Band Podcast
This week on The Boys in the Band Podcast we talk to Felix White from The Maccabees about the band's four albums, electric live shows and why they bowed out on a high in 2017 with a series of stunning farewell shows at Alexandra Palace. Felix takes us through the story of how the band's sound evolved as they became more skilled musicians and honed their craft, relives remarkable stories from their tour bus, and explains the inspirations behind their most-loved songs and the special chemistry they had as a group. He also discusses his life after the band, including his record company, his new book, and his enduring love of cricket. And reveals other indie stars who love the sport too! The Maccabees fan?

Season 10, Ep 15: Most of were kids who dreamed of being rock stars. None of us had the single-minded determination to set about making it happen. Felix did, taking a bunch of mates at uni in Bristol to No.1 on the UK charts with the Maccabees. What's even more unexpected is the part that cricket played in Felix's life, two obsessions forming an unlikely partnership. Now he's written down that story, in a beautiful debut book that ties together ambition, grief, and loneliness, and the extraordinary power that any of those can have. Felix is a very special guest to talk through the tale of It's Always Summer Somewhere.Your Nerd Pledge number this week:3.02 - Glenn FinkeldeSend us a Nerd Pledge at patreon.com/thefinalwordFind previous episodes at finalwordcricket.com44% off Wisden Cricket Monthly at bit.ly/wcmtfw20% off primo WoodstockCricket.co.uk gear with the code TFW20Check out Brick Lane Brewery on Instagram, FB and TwitterThe Final Word is part of the Bad Producer Podcast NetworkTitle track by UrthboySupport the show: https://patreon.com/thefinalwordSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
