No really, why are you so shit?
with, can't you be a bit better?
Rather than not be constructive
i just think every band should be asked that in interview.
does this mean we can get the good people of DiS to answer the questions too then?
Do you make a habit of touching men whilst their trying to wee, or was I just one of the lucky ones?
How are you?
What is beneath that hat?
why weren't you at Gindrinker last night?
- it is habitual, but that doesn't make you any less lucky
- ok thanks, a little sleepy, and am trying to figure out a suitably witty response to the questions above, without suggesting we've taken the question to heart...
- the only way you'll find out the answer to that is if you touch me back while you're at the toilet
- i was doing some emergency shopping in Tesco, though I've heard that Gindrinker were (predictably) excellent, which has now slightly tainted my otherwise excellent shop
has recently interviewed you. Was he obsequious in any way?
he was practically e-sucking our toes the whole way through. But that's quite a nice thing.
answer my question first?
SO GUYS WHAT'S THE NEW SINGLE ABOUT?
are "shit" because we are part of an elaborate marketing "joke", to see if an "indie" "band", dressed "up" in "indie" "t-shirts", on an "indie" "label",can trick "the" public into "buying" "their" records, no matter how "shit" they "are".
WHAT IS YOUR NEW SINGLE ABOUT GUYS?
HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?
your favourite colour?
thats MY interview technique
*has never used this technique, but has discussed it*
how many band t-shirts do the band own?
Is it more fun to trick-or-treat in the middle of August with or without Huw Stephens?
you have Big Black, Shellac, and the Neutral Milk Hotel one that makes me boil with jealousy.
your special Going Out Clothes?
our management buys them all for us in an attempt to market us as 'cool'... Neil's never even heard of Shellac...
You forgot about loads.
Are you aware that the press-release sticker thingy on the promo CDs that Wichita sent out is seemingly written in TXT SPK, claims that the band's called 'Los Capmesinos', and that the single is called 'We Throw Knives You Throw Parties'?
Thoughts on this please.
Bowen is in SO much trouble...
but I did a little LOL when I read that sticker.
used to play for Norwich, left back. We're gonna take it out on him.
More questions: are you going to Attack+Defend/Heck/Hornby Pylons on umm Thursday, and Piney Gir/The Loves/Sweet Baboo/Little My on Saturday?
which band member would be left standing?
if los campesinos were to endorse any beer, which beer would you choose?
The Wombles and The Clangers?
i mean, in relation to how big Wimbledon is and how big The Moon is, surely by matters of scale Clangers would be humungous.
write a new song? or a song which makes it into your setlist? cos it seems to take me forever to write and record new songs, also lyrics are the hardest part right?
if the band were labelled with spice girls style tags like sporty or scary or whatever, what would yours be?
- Lost Los Camp
- Camp Los Camp
- uhm...i've run out of ideas.
what's your favourite colour?
The world must know.
a happy ending, in harmony.
What was with you being double booked for Bristol-it showed you down for playing the mighty gigboat on the same night as polytechnic up until yesterday?
Also, will any of you be coming to this http://drownedinsound.com/event/attendees/22278 It is going to be gigboatastisch and on a giggery related note, my girlfriend swears she spotted one of you at Brand New lastnight...confirm or deny please.
they did go on for aaaages. Great Hall is the worst venue in Cardiff.
Will any of you be joining Monpot and a few others in the Black Parade when My Chemical Romance grace the fields of Cardiff and draw in the troublsome youths with their "flagons of cider" and "charecteristic wailing in the streets" (God Bless reactionary local Journalism)
i have to quickly change my ringtone when i am occassionaly in the same cafe as you because it would be awkward as fuck to have someone ring me and you to hear one of your songs, wouldnt it? yes. yes it would.
I want my interview to be fresh and exclusive and you're ruining it for me! :'(
- whether turnips are better than parsnips
- whether they think wood pigeons would like their music
- what their new single is about
Now if you'll excuse me, i'm off to strangle the bishop.
to shake hands on this or something.
with a member of Los Campesinos. I win.
Just helping you plug :)
why is your manager saying you can't do a session for student radio? Student radio. We're almost a charity.
And he emailed back. He was actually quite aggressive about it. I mean, I imagined him getting really angry and going all red-faced and stuff as he typed it. Might not have actually happened. Anyway, I thought the numbers thing might be a problem, but then I thought it would probably just be fun. We'd all be bumping into each other and sticking instruments into each other and saying "Oops!". So if you're up for it, that would be awesome, but I should probably check with someone who knows more about these things than I do that it would actually be okay to have all of you in there at once first.
I'll just make a bootleg of the gig and play it out on air.
in Cathays. But everyone knows that asnwer.
as it's on my walk home and the woman who works there calls me Stephen. My name isn't Stephen. Good egg mayonnaise though.
Clearly. I also recommend Dough down on Salisbury Road.
I really ought to be in bed.
i see we're both still not sleeping properly.
anyway, my questions is...
do you fancy interviewing some mechanics for me in about an hour?
no, some real grease and oil mechanics. I'm going to embarass myself.
where it goes 'One blink for yes, two blinks for no, etc'
do you not think that goes on for too long?
I didn't used to think that but then I listened to it on headphones on drugs and it definitely went on too long. I kept anticipating it finishing but it didn't.
Thanks for clearing that up!
real or urban myth?
When are you coming to America?
why don't the other members of the band read DiS?
are you djing at twisted?
how cool are gindrinker?
what's your favourite brand of tobacco?
how do you stop yourself being a nervous wreck at indie clubs?
maybe a marlboro light? and then learn to roll cigarettes (there's a strange sense of satisfaction you get when you've mastered it), and then you can move on to anything. (or stay with rollies because you're a poor student type like me :( )
Bourbons or Custard Creams. This is important business, I'll have you know.
Also, pack in the studying and come and play Brighton. All the cool kids are doing it.
bourbons, custard creams have no place in any discerning biscuiteer's biscuit box.
We want to play Brighton, but y'know, degrees n'stuff. Soon...
in my estimation from this thread.
question: does a culture of drawing within architecture lead to an eltist profession at odd to the necessities of participation for a hopeful urban environment?
please answer in 10 000 words. with references. ta.
to do your coursework for you. It doesnt work. Silver mt Zion thoroughly turned down the question 'is democratization spreading?'. Then again, it had 'democracy' in the title...maybe i shouldve gone for the one about terrorism.
i'm actually interested to know whether anyone realises this as a problem? or whether my research actually perpetuates the closed elitist discipline i'm writing against?
"Architecture students are like virgins
with an itch they cannot scratch,
Never build a building till you're 50
what kind of life is that?" (Malkmus, Stephen, 'The Hexx' in Terror Twilight, or that Pavement album that noone seems to like, despite it being amazing)
Can you you use it in your dissertation??
that sounds like the Knave interview all over again...
it also has the hilarious 'readers confessions' bit where some 'girl' 'recalls' the time she got 'done by the office black man'.
yeah, it's great...i believe Pete and our housemate Helen mysteriously 'won' one of those 'competitions' for writing a dirty story. It WAS NOT fixed.
Oh, and will be there Thurs, but not Sat... you going to Long Winters tonight in Newport?
And since when do you get to ask me questions?
what sort of person 'wins' those especially FHMs one.
I'd do anything for you Gareth. Shall we go out for dinner?
1) did you get any new fans who quite clearly found out about you through Knave?
2) how many cardigans does Gareth have? and please tell all the stupid cardigan haters why man-cardigans are so awesome.
3) does Tom ever take off his hat?
you have loads of clothes. Even I only have five cardigans.
You will be spammed to thousands of people in approximately two hours, look out for it!
for answering all the questions hehe oh well...
I saw you play at the Water Rats in September and two days later I got sick. Is there a correlation between these two events?
a time machine *sigh*
I don't re-call such an incident.
that gig was too hot and loud.
but great fun too. i hadn't seen so many smiling faces at a gig for a very long time.
is 'doing' ver Camp as their New Band Of The Day tomorrow, it seems. As it's Paul Lester, I suspect it'll be a kicking.
Whats the best present you ever got bought?
and i'm not even in the band.
why do you book gigs on the same day as, not only my 6aside weekly game, but the most important one too - against our rivals which could us go top, with an extra game in hand still!
why, for the love of god, why?
i live in wells.
umm, it's a "spekal" kinda place.
ie, everyone i know that comes from there is a mugger, or has been mugged.
so which are you: mugger or muggie?
onto the topic of "munging" and someone will provid an urban dictionary link and things willget sick (quite literally).
going to ATP this year? i promise not to drunkenly gatecrash your chalet this time.
actually, i imagine neil at least will be there trying to replace the photo of him with bill callahan that he accidentally deleted in may...
neil and i should co-ordinate some kind of attack on him. maybe while he's playing.
to annoy Paul Lester?
i don't mind that he doesn't like them. i just don't get why he wrote it. If you get a spot to write about new music in a national paper (or it's website) then why not write about something that genuinely excites you, rather than having a personal dig at something you don't like?
and it's not their second single and they've not credited the picture to Grace.
But I get things wrong often so I should shut up really.
i went on your myspace from the link in your profile and I saw that you have Asaurus Records as one of your friends. Would Los Campesinos! consider ever doing any releases with them/touring with their bands? Because that would be cool.
can you guestlist me for the spitz?
with the lead notes played up and down the D string, then an open D string with notes played up and down the G string.
it's not that hard.
with the open A bit it's -
and then the open D bit is something like -
it would be impossible to transcribe to the rhythm, but there are the frets.
with '-' denoting sliding between frets:
open A string with the D string going:
11 11-9 9 9-7 7 7-2 2-4 4-2 2-11 11 11-14 14 14-16 19 16 14 11 11-14 14-9 9-11 11-6 6-7
and then it gets a bit harder to work out
are you in the band now then?
you never sent back my questions:*(
