Next up is an interview with Adam on behalf of the legacy. one of the u.k's up and coming bands on Dead And Gone records so
check it out...
*How did The Legacy get together?-give us some history.
A-We started out in summer 2002 under the name A Fighting Chance. after a few shows, we changed it to Thhe Legacy and
recorded a well received demo. after our original guitarist left, we got Mark on board, after more shows we recruited Pid
on 2nd guitar and recorded our MCD in september 2003.
Current line up is:-
*What are the main musical influences for The Legacy?
A-Bands such as Turning Point, Chain Of Strength, In My Eyes, Lifetime, Embrace, Minor Threat, Suicide File but we listen
to a variety of music and all give varied influence to our music.
*How would you describe The Legacy live show for people who haven't seen you yet?-are your shows energetic/enjoyable?
A-I'd like to think we give a good gig, we all try and give 100% when we play live, we play energetic, fast music so it's
only natural we move around and get into it. me, personally, I get quite nervous playing shows so I can't stand still so by
jumping around lots I get rid of all my nervous energy.
*Has there ever been any trouble (fighting) at a Legacy show and if so how do you react to that as a band?
A-Not to my knowledge has there been any fighting, if this ever happened we'd stop playing and try to sort it out. There's
no room for violence in hardcore.
*How did you react when Dead and Gone records offered to put out your cd?
A-We were over the moon, having known Ian (runs D and G records)for a number of years, it seemed only natural to do something
on D and G, after all we're based in the same city and he's helped us out since day one. Ian's done a great job with our cd
and D and G is a great label with lots of new bands so check it out!
*How has your cd been received?- I know it got a good review from Kerrang! magazine, is it doing well?
A-It's doing better than expected, I don't know how many we've sold but it's nearly out of it's press of 1000. The Kerrang!
review was really good, to be honest I've not seen a bad review yet, we've had excellent responses to it from places such
as America and Portugal, and most people seem to like it so we couldn't be happier.
*Have you any other releases planned for the near future?
A- Not at the moment, speedowax records is hopefully pressing four songs from our CD onto a 7" so look out for that
soon. At the moment we're just concentrating on writing new songs and maybe recording again later in the year, we'll wait
*Have you got any gigs/tours lined up?
A-We've got quite a lot of shows coming up over the summer. Tours with Modern Life Is War, Scraps And Heart Attacks, Stand
and Fight and Over My Dead Body our all planned over the Summer. For a full gig list check out Dead And Gone.
*Since In The Clear being around a few years ago, Do you think the Sheffield scene has gotten bigger or better?
A- It took a while but it's getting there, gigs are generally well attended and there's a core of people who show up to
most gigs. I think In The Clear paved the way for a Sheffield scene to begin with, they were a huge influence for us and I
think we've just carried on the ground work they did. There's a few new bands coming up in Sheffield, check them out...
*Anything you want to add?
A- Check out www.deadandgone.co.uk for info on our cds/gigs etc; our website might be finished soon but who knows?
Thanks for the interview and a big shout out to Ian, The Sheff kids, This Time Around and all the UK kids and bands that
have supported us since day one, thanks!!
