Lawrence Arabia just wrapped up an extremely successful run through the U.S. with Fanfarlo and Robert Francis. The band, London-by-way-of-New-Zealand, is lead by George Harrison-loving frontman James Milne and live they comes across much louder than they do on their U.S. debut, Chant Darling, (featuring the fantastic pop ditty “Apple Pie Bed”). Milne says that after a run overseas, Lawrence Arabia will be back on these shores, so do your studying now.
I grabbed James for a quick interview before Lawrence Arabia’s set in Columbus on April 1 (no fooling here!).
