Frontman of the London post-punk band chats about names, new music and working with your heroes
‘What does ‘Warmduscher’ mean?’ echoes the artist known as Clams Baker Jr, who fronts the band of the same name. ‘It’s an old German insult which my friends there used to call me – it’s like calling someone a wimp or a punk, like they take warm showers. Which is funny, because the word looks so macho. In fact, a lot of people think it must mean something dirty.’ It’s a name which represents the music they make, as most recently heard on this year’s third album Tainted Lunch; dirt现金捕鱼的胜率y, macho Southern-style rock (Alabama 3 would be a good comparison), with a soulful, soft-centred heart.
Warmduscher are Clams’ (Craig Higgins Jr) thing, although he used to share the band with Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family. Clams is originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, but he’s been in London for eleven years; Adamczewski was a fan of his previous group Black Daniel, and when his invite for them to play a 2014 New Year’s party didn’t come fast enough to beat the band’s split, Clams and various Fat Whites members instead played an improvised set, giving birth to the earliest prototype version of Warmduscher.
