Woodstock-based "un-tempered, no-frills rock 'n' roll" outfit The Bobby Lees have just released their new ep, Hollywood Junkyard, and will play Irish dates from Friday, 1 July. We ask drummer Macky Bowman the BIG questions...

Tell us three things about yourself?
A) I am 6'4".
B) At the time of writing, I'm dealing with one of, if not the most putrid sunburn aftermaths of my life.
C) I love Sonic the Hedgehog!!!

Fishbone, DEVO, PJ Harvey, Desmond Dekker, The Breeders, Paula Abdul, Hall and Oates.

What was the first gig you ever went to and the first record you ever bought/downloaded?
First real concert I ever went to in a cognisant state was Black Sabbath on their 13 tour. First gig ever was probably seeing my parents' band play live in a time too nascent to remember. First CD I remember owning as my own thing is KISS Destroyer. I think I was five.

Favourite song right now is probably The Real Thing by The Brothers Johnson.

Where can people find your music/more information?
Our band Instagram is @thebobbylees and our music is everywhere that one would reasonably try to find it! If a callow and wretchedly languid individual like myself could find it, I guarantee an attractive, well-mannered, lithe, and punctilious person could get to it with your arms tied behind your back! By the way, have you been going to the gym recently? You look amazing.

The Bobby Lees play Whelan's in Dublin on Friday, 1 July; Limerick's Kasbah on Saturday, 2 July; and Belfast's Ulster Sports Club on Sunday, 3 July.
