When asked in a recent interview how Angus
Crowne and The Family Jewels materialized,
Angus stated "As we start to get older,
especially in our late 40's, society seems to
want you to slow down and let the youth have their turn. I say bullshit! I still have a lot to say."
About Uke-Billy Punk: "It's a new genre - mine. My music is ultimately about honesty and truth. And if I get to piss a few people off along the way, then my work here is done."
"It's about where I am in my life right now. It's about getting older, wiser, but at times feeling frustrated and bitter. The message in all of my songs aren't too difficult to figure out. Some are tongue-in-cheek, some are hard, but all of the songs are me - and that has made working on them very special."
The Family Jewels consist of music producer and guitarist Gavin Ross, drummer Tino Marrufo, and bassist / guitarist Rod Kashani.
