The Duke Spirit

The Duke Spirit stayed at the Joshua Tree Inn this past summer.

The Duke Spirit

L-R: Leila Moss, Toby Butler, Olly ‘The Kid’ Betts, Luke Ford, Dan Higgins

You recorded most of the ep out in the desert at Joshua Tree. Surely a rock star fantasy…was it as much fun as it sounds?
Leila: Of course. We woke up in a mexican style casita on a mountain side every morning. We looked for snakes everyday. We recorded whilst some of our favourite rock and rollers would pop by for a burrito. It was hot as hell. We drunk margaritas and our new friends played us music by people we’d never had the chance to get into before, like Fatso Jetson and The Shaggs. And because we’re english everyone kissed our asssses in LA. They love the brits!

Did you manage to make any pilgrimages whilst you were out there? I wouldnt have been able to resist a trip to the infamous joshua tree inn…
Leila: First night in from the airport, we stayed either side of the room he (Gram Parsons) died in. Nothing freaky happened. But our thoughts were with him. We swam in the pool, and thought about him and Keith Richards doing the same, way back in the day. Olly thought the fact that they served cereal at breakfast was awesome. He loves cereal.
