perhaps Wallis is on the streets right now asking Jay: when you gonna learn man??? hehhehe
or maybe: don't you remember the morning glories we lived.... don't you remember we used to make music as partners???

he's a great musician, but it seems Jay Kay loves his computers and not natural instruments... it's a real sad thing cos i really love the old sound!

Pre-show Interview: Wallis Buchannan
Broadcasted before the Finsbury Park show, transcribed by the Dancing Buffalo Site.

Wallis - Hi I'm Wallis Buchanan, Didgeridoo player.. for Jamiroquai
Lisa - So when did you, erm.. first hook up with the band
Wallis - Erm.. from the beginning really.. Erm, me and Jay, its like.. we have known each other from Ealing days, long time ago.. we used to skateboard and stuff. I hadn't seen him for couple of years and I was living in Camden.. and I heard that he was.. erm.. playing on this track called er.. "When You Gonna Learn.. and he asked me if I'd play on the intro.. so I said, yeah.. ok.. so I played on the intro and then it worked. It was about the environment and it was a earthy instrument. So then I thought.. ok we put a middle eight section in it.. just to spice it up, and it started from there really.
Lisa - What is it about the Didgeridoo, that... you know.. that turns you on
Wallis - Basically just the sound, you know.. when I first heard.. its like.. boy, I need to hear this sound again, and I did not know anyone who played it or where I could even buy the music from, so, I just thought.. I had to teach myself, so that's how it started and I had a plastic tube, to start of with.. did not have a didg. I learned the certain breathing techniques, took me about three months to get it and then, I had this tube.. and I never stopped..

Lisa - From West London, to Fort Worth.. (Wallis giggles) last time you played at Fort Worth, tell me about that gig
Wallis - Eleven on us on stage, and there were about five people in the audience.. but as the night went on.. we just had a laugh. More people came in and it was packed by the end of it
Lisa - What usually happens when you come of stage
Wallis - Normally, we just have a drink.. have a slaggin match or, like, some people start complaining about, you know.. the sound was not right or sometimes its like.. yeah, excellent gig or really good vibe, like specially in America now, like.. we have come over and started off in Vancouver and went down to Seattle and San Francisco, San Diego and Denver.. and its like the vibe, now, is.. just seems to be happening here now for us. You know what I mean.. the response, I think we have cracked it or, am I speaking to early..but, do you know what I mean, it feels like that
Lisa - Its all the excitement in the air
Wallis - And every seems to be talkin about Jamiroquai.. like in L.A.. and were doing Finsbury Park as well, and that's like 35,000 people and I think its sold out, already
Lisa - Does that surprise you..
Wallis - You don't feel any different. Ok your wages might go up. Yeah, I don't feel like I'm pop star, you know, I just like I'm Wallis Buchanan. I go to Tesco to do the same thing as everyone else does, you know.. back at home. Its like when your on the road, you sought of see it more, cause your just in it and its like.. the response you get from people and even like when where doing the arena's in England.. and Europe.. like in France, you play to 17,000, like that's when you know.. 17,000 people come to see you

Lisa - Do you feel.. I mean Jay is obviously the center of everything, without JK, there would be no Jamiroquai.. how do you feel about all the attention.. because.. obviously, its on you guys, but its all on him, as well, mainly on him..
Wallis - No, he can have the attention, that cool with me..
Lisa - Suits you fine
Wallis -Yeah, that's cool
Lisa - Do you feel he hogs the attention, though
Wallis - No, his a real showman, but we all have to be sometimes.. you know what I mean, but your not really being a showman.. your just being yourself.. what you are. I think everyone hogs it now or then

Lisa - Alright.. my final question is "Where do you see it all going in five years for now, say. Its always hard to predict the future, but.. general directions??
Wallis - I just think it will just go on. I don't know where it will branch too.. No one really knows.. but I just know, its just a progression, a natural progression, I mean.. we have done three albums now... say it was a piece of cake.. you've just had a a quarter of Jamiroquai. Theirs plenty of more to come. Its just the beginning
Lisa - Might we have a Mister Buchanan solo venture
Wallis - Ohh yeah, yeah.. don't worry about that. That's in the pipeline.. thats in the didjeridoo (manic laughter)

yeah missed wallis on the last album, sad that there wasn't a laid back didj instrumental thrown into AFO in teh tradition of 'Journey to Arnhemland' or 'Didjirama' but then, i suppose bands have gotta move with the times and keep it fresh. Love the old skool didj songs though :)....would like to know what became of him though.

Yes, it would be great to have him back. I miss so much the didjeridoo on the tracks. When they played in Toronto for AFO Wallis couldn't make it because he was having stomach problems. I don't know if he's OK, has anyone ever heard that he's healthy again?

You remember him on stage...
When there was no song for him to play.
He was always jumping up and down getting the crowd to go wild!!!
He's a great entertainer!
