"It’s a real beautiful place actually, spectacular to look at. I wouldn’t live here but it’s beautiful."
— Tom Meighan at Snowbombing Festival
"We’ve had a few freaky moments…We thought a UFO was outside one night. We heard a noise coming from outside so we went and looked out the window and we could hear this kinda ‘FF FFF FFFF’ [makes noise of a helicopter]. We were like ‘What the FUCK is that?’ and we thought it was a UFO! I think it was a fan or a heater in the cupboard. We’re such fucking idiots, man."

"I normally start singing along! It’s an amazing feeling. We went through a stage of playing Chelsea Dagger after we scored, which didn’t seem right to me. Chelsea have always been such a big rival to Leicester! It’s nice that the club do that, we’re really proud of it."

"She’s a bit young at the moment, but I might try to convert her! Fatherhood is wonderful. It’s tiring, but once they start communicating with you it’s amazing. My missus is from Liverpool and her family brought Mimi a Liverpool kit, which was a bit naughty, I thought! That’s my say! You never know, she might be a football fan."
— Tom Meighan on taking Mimi to football games & fatherhood
"I do. When we played Chelsea in the FA Cup last season, me and Serge were in Florida and we had to get up at eight in the morning to watch the game. We were both on the tour bus praying that the channel in America would be showing the game, then we saw Leicester in the tunnel alongside Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and we were screaming! We were having our cereal at half past eight in the morning, shouting at the television and watching the match. It was wonderful. Wherever we are in the world, we always try to watch the games when we can, but there’s nothing like being there."

Noel Fielding just said on that radio that after their sets at Give It Up For Comic Relief Tom Meighan gave Noel a pint of Sambuca, a pint!
I suppose this is words of wisdom: play a show, have a pint of sambuca.
"He wants to get out of his little world, y’know all of them people, people are in a recession and people are struggling to do things, and they paid that little git, that much money, how much his bloody tickets are and he leaves the kids for 2 hours, it’s a total lack of respect he wants bringing down a bit, doesn’t he. Yeah I think it’s awful and like I said just a real rude thing to do…Put him in your pocket or something to shut him up, sew him like a Borrower, sew him away for a while."

The BRITs this year was a slow death, like a funeral parlour with Simon Cowell as the messiah – horrific.
Poor James Corden has ran out of lives.
I like him but it was awful – he knows it’s terrible as well. He died a death and should stop doing the BRIT awards now.
— Tom on the 2013 Brit Awards
"We keep writing fight music. I don’t know what Serge puts in his tea. There’s nothing aggressive about Serge, he’s a lily pad on water."
— Tom (Q Magazine, March 2012)
