2. What's this Tescoland like?

3. Who does Jamie T sound like?
The Clash, Rat Boy and The Kooks.
4. What's the good word from the papers?
“The riffed-up reggae of ‘Tescoland’ is worthy of a sneaky place on ‘Combat Rock’” – NME.
“Would not be out of place amongst the livelier tracks by The Clash” – The Edge.
“Propelled by a chugging, breezy Clash-influenced guitar line” – Headstuff.
5. Which bands inspired Jamie T?
The main influences on the new album are The Clash, Oasis, The Arctic Monkeys, Slaves and Wu-Tang Clan.
6. Why should I give Tescoland a spin?
The multi-dimensional rhythms and the old school punk make Tescoland special.
7. Does Jamie T have any more tunes worth a poke?
Zombie was NME's song of the year in 2014, another ska tinged singalong and hands down his best track. Robin Hood is another Clash-esque banger and Hocus Pocus is top notch n'all.
8. Any more words Johnny?
Get your snout in the trough of Jamie T's goodness.

To really understand”
