Q

How would you describe the bandís sound?

A

Itís usually better if we donít try. Itís loud and noisy.

Q

How do you approach your song writing and what is your lyrical theme/content?

Obliquely. We sneak up on the song and murder it. The words are Generation-X odes to self pity.

Q

Who gets involved with writing of lyrics and melody? Is it down to specific individuals or a collaborative process?

We donít talk about melody. Matt writes sentences; Mark writes paragraphs.

1.5 times a week; D & P 16th Feb; Semi-final of Get In The Ring on the 20th or the 27th of February.

Q

What has been your best gig so far, and why is it so memorable?

Donít remember Ė weíve been doing this for a very long time. These days, still being alive at the end of the set is a result.
