British India keep it close to their chest whilst smelling fresh

We chat with the boys of British India before they play Shoal Bay Country Club

Over the past 10 years British India have notched up 8 entries into triple J’s Hottest 100, released 6 albums, played every major festival in Australia and have headlined over 700 shows. They have toured with many international acts and even supported The Rolling Stones at their Hunter Valley gig back in 2014.

They are now approaching another milestone, a departure and a new line up. So, to celebrate founding guitarist Nic Wilson’s awesome career the band will play one final tour with him. 

This will be the last chance to see the original line up on stage and we asked them 5 questions ahead of their show at Shoal Bay Country Club on Saturday, 15 December.


NL: It’s been over a year since you released Forgetting the Future. What have been the stand out tracks to play live from that album?

BRITISH INDIA: My Love – it’s precious

NL: The band formed in High School. How do you think your Catholic education influences the music you make?


NL: Tell us how Harry Vanda and Glenn Goldsmith have influenced your career.

BRITISH INDIA: Harry is a genius and was instrumental us putting it altogether and Glenn is still with us after 11 years

NL: You spend a lot of time in transit with each other. Who has the worst personal hygiene?


NL: We invite you to a party and you have to cook something to share. What do you make?
