So who is the boss?
Tom: He’s the boss. Yeah he’s the boss, massively. He’s the boss. He’s the boss!
Serge: […] I do the reading and writing, he beats people up for me.
Tom: I don’t beat people up!
Serge: In a psychedelic way!
Tom: Oh, in a psychedelic way, I know what you’re saying. He’s the commander… no he’s the boss. And I’m just fucking Merlin, with a fucking wizard’s hat on. It’s me and him and, we’ve known each other since we were junior kids, man. […] We lived with each other for fucking four years when we got the farm, y’know.
Serge: What’s fucking weird is, for two years we slept in the same fucking bedroom as each other, all four of us did.
Tom: That’s weird, innit?
Serge: Until one of us started snoring - I’m not gonna name any names - somebody would start wearing cowboy fucking long johns to bed, and started snoring, then we all broke up. But it was still a bit weird.
So you’ve seen each other nekkid?
Tom: Oh fuck yeah. Smelt everything as well. We’ve lived with each other, so we know everything.

We kind of felt it in the studio. This [record] was the one that was going to make us, you know? Really make us and turn everyone’s heads. You get that feeling, I can’t describe it. We knew this one would take us to another level. It’s just fate, you know? It just happens. All we do is make music, put it out there and see what happens. Funnily enough, we’ve been alright. I just think we just went for it.

Honesty. If you’re honest, you’ll be all right. As a kid, I was really inspired by Michael Jackson. I idolised him and mimicked him. Then you have the obvious ones like Liam Gallagher, Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison. You look at those people and think ‘wow.’ Nick Cave inspires me – what a dude.
