We’re going all the way back, through all the interviews of the year, to give you the scoop on the best interview quotes of 2012! Here’s Part Four, featuring our interviews with Django Django, Maximo Park, Turin Brakes, Charlotte Cooper from The Subways and The Pigeon Detectives!
AMBY: And lastly, tell me something that nobody knows about each band member.
DD: Tommy- he breeds rare stick insects. Jim- he has toes where his fingers should be and vice versa. Vinny- he sleeps in a girls nighty and eats cat food for breakfast. Me- I can’t read or write.
AMBY: You are one of the most frenetic and charismatic performers I have seen. Where does that come from?
PS: A love of the songs – I get immersed in the sound and the emotion of the lyrics.
AMBY: Since it took you “frickin’ hours” to put your Twitter space suit on, is there intelligent life in outer space and have you seen it?!
OK: I have one piece of advice for the humans, forget outer space and focus your telescopes on inner space, it’s far more rewarding ;)
AMBY: I noticed that live you are insanely energetic! Even your Live At Abbey Road segment was kinetic. What’s the craziest thing that’s happened to you at one of your live shows?
CC: It’s got to be one of Billy’s many stage diving incidents. One that sticks in my mind from recently was at a festival in Austria where Billy crowd surfed to the Front of House tent and dove off the top!
RW: Yes we’re doing a few small intimate gigs in November in preparation for a big tour next year. There’s been lots of crazy things happen to us, band members have missed flights, got on wrong trains but one of the most crazy things we have done was getting on a tiny plane in Norway and hitting bad turbulence, we all thought we were going to die!
