Reading & Leeds 2017: Blaenavon: “The excitable guy isn’t in the rhythm section”
Hello Harris and Frank. how has your summer been so far?
Summer so far has been cool, it’s always good in festival season to have the weekdays off.

Do you have any onstage tricks that always go down well with a festival crowd?
Yes of course, we are all trick and no stick. Frank and Ben each have a set of impromptu dance routines that always get peoples noses wet.

Is there anyone you’re particularly looking forward to seeing play, or catching up with?
Honestly, no. Not that we’ve seen the line up.

Which is your favourite of the headliners: Muse, Kasabian or Eminem?
If you’ve been reading up on us you might find that we formed when we were 14 to play Muse covers. So yeah, Kasabian should be fun!

Who’s the best band you’ve seen there?
Leeds 2014: Harris disappeared for a few hours and we found him naked crawling back to the tent after seeing System Of A Down. He’s never been the same since.

What’s the best thing about Reading & Leeds?
Warm Fosters can sculptures.

What else are you excited about right now?
Nothing at all. The excitable guy isn’t in the rhythm section.
