begins lead singer Jonny Green. "It's not as boring as
we thought it would be."
After the brief interruption and a few sniggers, the interview
begins. Some of the lyrics for 'Take Me To Bed' are "dragging
you under", would Jonny mind explaining what they are
"There's a brilliant scene in David Lych's 'Razorhead',
where this man goes to bed with his next-door neighbour and
they have this sought of weird slow sex and they sink down
into the bed and that was the image I was sought of thinking
The band met at a London art school, with the exception of
bassist Tony Holland.
"They picked me up at a new years party," adds Tony
"When we started off we couldn't play our instruments,"
explains Jonny. "It started off as an idea rather than
something that we could make concrete. We met Tony and he
seemed someone who knew what he was talking about with instruments.
He could play."
Fours year later they are playing Bedford on a mild November
evening can they remember their first band practice together?
"I rang you," says Jonny to Tony. "And asked
if you would do a gig, because we had a gig booked and we
didn't have a bass player. He came along and learnt in two
hours six songs, something like that. It was just chaos. The
first practice that Miles and I had together. . . . ."
"…..was just ridiculous," concludes guitarist
Mile Heseltine. >>
