Lord Nelson - The Live Interview

On Tuesday evening, October 2,  Radio Meltdown DJs Shoo, Jester and Intruder spent a lively few hours with musical artist Lord Nelson.    We talked about his life and his career and played music from his latest release: Lord Nelson featuring Lies  “Fight – My struggle between heaven and hell”

The interview may be heard in its entirety at the listen link below.

Lord Nelson is a larger than life performer, and for man who describes himself as 6’ 5” and 300 lbs, that is a remarkable accomplishment in itself.   He grew up in a military family and as such traveled all over the United States and several foreign countries during his youth.  He learned to appreciate the different styles and genres of music he heard in his travels and today tries to incorporate many stylistic elements into his music.    When not on tour, Lord Nelson splits his time between his home in Columbia, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia.

Lord Nelson is the lead singer for the band Stuck Mojo, a Rap metal group based in Atlanta.  He was introduced to the group by his friend and the band's former lead singer, Bonz.  His first studio album with the group was Southern Born Killers, released in 2008.  Stuck Mojo is considered to be one of the pioneers of rap metal, which Lord Nelson carries successfully into his solo effort Fight.”  As DJ Jester observes, follows in the footsteps of groups like Run-D. M. C. and Aerosmith, Beastie Boys and others but with a sound that manages to be unique and authentic all by itself.

Jester asked Lord Nelson about the differences in the audiences when touring between the US and Europe.  He said that US audiences make you work harder for their acceptance as they have so many bands to choose from; if you meet their expectations, they join in and have a good time.  In Europe, they love American rock bands and usually come to the show willing to get into the music and enjoy it without hesitation.   The audiences in Europe are more immediately responsive, more willing to trust the performers.

When Shoo asked Lord Nelson about future plans for touring (with a special plea to come to Rio de Janeiro, her home town), he mentioned that he is in discussions about going out on tour.  He indicated there is a certain amount of difficulty getting a  tour established with LIES as they are a French-based band and touring in the US presents an additional hurdle that has to be overcome.  He mentioned future touring with Stuck Mojo as a possibility as well.  As for Europe, there is a tour planned for next year.

Lord Nelson spent a generous 3 hours with the three Radio Meltdown DJs, and the entire interview has an enjoyable, relaxed but informative feel to it.  We feel priveledged to have had this large-spirited artist take time from his busy schedule to spend with us.  All the DJs at Radio Meltdown truly love this man's music and will continue to feature it on our shows.   If you haven't heard Lord Nelson or his music, what are you waiting for?
