S] How are you guys today?

Nathan Bailey] Good

Tayt Cockell – drums] On this day the 2nd of November: just fine

Hayden Hughes – vocals, guitar] Bangin’

S] What inspiration do you gain from your surroundings, and local scene?

Nath] I’ve seen 3 people fall off their bikes this week.

Tayt] It depends where i am. If I’m outside, different things may inspire me as opposed to being inside. In my house, my Mum inspires me. In my garden, my dog inspires me.

Hayden] There isn’t a music scene in Flintshire!

Nath] We don’t nick off the other bands, but even if we did we wouldn’t tell you, would we?

S] What about other media – films, games, art etc?

Hayden] Yeah Art and Film inspires me. I reference film a lot in the tunes. It all works itself into the songs somehow.

Tayt] Steven Gerrard is my idol.

Nath] How does he get his head so square? Inspiring.

S] What would you say your biggest challenges are as a band?

Nath] Hayden.

Tayt] Hayden.

S] How do you define success as a group?

Nath] Whether, like, you know… just whether John (my dad) thinks it’s gone ok.

Tayt] I just like it when people say they like my van.

S] What experiences inspired ‘My Girl’?

Hayden] I just imagined my ideal girl. She doesn’t exist.
