We aren’t cool and never will be.
Maybe it’s because I’m English, but in terms of how people perceive us I only pick up on the negative side of it.
I’m competitive with anyone who writes a good song – I don’t care if it’s a band or solo artist or whoever.
I always dream about other musicians. And they’re never interested in hanging out with us. It’s like being at school and the bigger boys don’t want to play with you!
I don’t actually own a car.
So I have probably 1,200 little bits of paper with notes, which when the Ambien really starts to kick in, don’t really make much sense. Say what you like about prescription drugs, but they do help when you’re sequencing a record.
Economically, unfair trade will benefit nobody in the long run, as poorer countries will be bled totally dry and will become unable to produce anything.
Music is split up now into little pockets.
I think we’re a band with a lot of history now so it’s nice to come up with something that doesn’t have any history at all.
It’s difficult when you’re successful, to admit that you need help.
I’m just a public-schoolboy. I’ve got a degree. I’m from a middle-class family in Devon. I’ve got no story.
I think shareholders are the great evil of this modern world.
Being such a big band is never a problem but it can be distracting.
I know being on a major label is meant to be antiquated, but we’re fine with it.
I can’t believe we’ve got away with becoming this huge band. And we still haven’t done anything I think is that good yet.
