This year, at the Greenman,
we got drunk, passed out and were set upon by a hoard
of screaming three year olds, one of our friends woke up
completely covered in grass, they had buried him alive!
What’s your funniest festival story?
So you managed to combine the
two. Well done! I don't really have a funny festival
story. I'm generally not at one long enough for something
funny to happen!
In the song "Fashion
Parade" you appear to take a swipe at certain
contemporary indie bands. Whats your gripe?
The main gripe is with the bands that seem to spring
up whenever a band, say Franz Ferdinand, gets big and
then for the next year or two, proceeds to rip them
off. Particularly when Franz Ferdinand ripped off a
load of bands in the first place. It's boring to say
the least. I find the music scene depressing at the
moment because being in a band should be about trying
to be original and do something different and although
there are people on the fringes doing just that,
the music industry is clogged up with bland uninspired
bands whose only aim is to one day be posing on
the front cover of the NME. Whilst being sponsored by
Shockwaves and Topshop. Money for music is good. Music
for money is bad.
