I think hopefully we’ve got enough brain cells left to decide if our music is really worth something.
I can’t do all that riddly diddly stuff. I’m not good enough. It’s all about not playing.
The first time we all played as a band, I think it was in January 1998, in Jonny’s bedroom.
At the end of the day, we’re just trying to prevent each other from going mad.
When you write something it has to hit the level that you accept as being good.
We’re also passionate about music and very critical about the music that we listen to.
Two weeks later, we played our first concert and had 100 people there. It was pretty cool.
