foxholski: Whats been on your stereo on the tour-bus in recent
Dan: "Same things as always really. New Doves album. New 'Trail of
Dead album, new Do Make Say Think album. "
foxholski: Are you all
ok? Have you had anymore accidents lately? You seem to get bruised a lot...
Dan: Tom is once again at the heart of the violence. He managed to
smash his guitar into both his knee (might say *nuts*, I can't
quite make out handwriting there...although he has very lovely handwriting and there are no spelling errors.) and
my back within a couple of gigs. I also hit myself on the head with my guitar. I now have an egg head."
foxholski: Who will you be watching at the Reading
fest this year?
Dan: Weezer, Strokes, Black Rebel, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age (are
they playing?), Rival Schools, Jimmy Eat World. Aw, probably loads more."
foxholski: Tell us about your nearest Spinal Tap
-esque experience while on the road?
Dan: "We lost our Tourbus...and had to sleep on a service station floor
for the night."
foxholski: Whats more rewarding: writing, performing or drinking?
Dan: "Writing, though other band
members may disagree."
foxholski: How many crates of beer would you charge
us to appear on our demo?
"No beer, just Vodka."
foxholski: You have said Norwich has always given
you a good welcome when you play there but what do you really think of Alan Partridgeville?
Dan: "Seems a nice enough place. Although the high street late
at night is full of people after Indie scalp."
foxholski: Like many small places the disaffection
seems to produce a rather incestuous scene of many underground bands: is that something youve experienced with Reading/Wokingham?
Dan: "No venue in Reading, so nowhere to see Reading bands play, so
I haven't got a clue."
foxholski: We have heard vocals from Tom, Ben,
Dan and Didz will we ever hear the vocal delights of Kieran and Jon?
Dan:"We're trying to avoid it, but they are very keen."
foxholski: Have you written much stuff on tour?
And to what extent might the new lyrics reflect some of your experience of what must have been the total mindfuck of the last
Dan: "A bit of new stuff has been written, not as pacey as old stuff
but much darker. And there may well be some tour documentary in the lyrics. Possibly"
foxholski: ..and on a similar note: you have come
such a long way in just three years: how do you keep a reality check: like when you turn on the TV/radio or open the NME and
there you are?
Dan: "Our friends remind us that we are nobs. And there's no room for
egos because we've all seen each other in blue speedos in P.E. at school."
foxholski: Is there a fantasy song that you wish
you could go back in time and pretend you wrote like in the school dance scene in Back to the Future?
Dan: "For The Roses by dEUS"
foxholski: A not *particularly* serious question
now: What are your respective Porn Names? Our readers really need to know..
Dan: "Don't really know how you get them, but I think mine is
foxholski: Are you keen to tour the States soon?
Dan: "A.S.A.P. but they have to like us first."
