Our first interview with David Longdon was published in the winter of 2018, and since then, both he and Big Big Train became household names for RVG and its most faithful listeners. Fast-forward two years and you’ll find us all here, having just finished the preparations for the publication of our follow-up interview with David, thereby marking the start of a new decade for Vox Groovy in a grand way.
David Longdon is the lead vocalist and co-songwriter for Big Big Train—a British prog-rock band that’s been on the rise since its revitalization. It’s interesting to note that its newfound success came about as a result of the changes that were made in 2009. Of course, the band has been around since the 1990s, but its current roster is very different to what it was twenty-seven years ago. David said that he had joined the band alongside Nick D’Virgilio and Dave Gregory, and it would seem that combining these musicians’ talents with the remainder of the band’s members was a recipe for success. Still, I urge you to listen to The Underfall Yard—a 2009 album that would leave expectant crowds hungry for more Big Big Train.
