We did a show in Dublin about a month ago and we found
a giant crucifix backstage, Mike balls was going to get on it and actually
do the crucifixion but it was too hard to keep the cross upright. I want to

Gruff Rhys once described the prospect of a GLC tour as 'frightening'.
What's been your scariest on-the-road moment so far?
Once on tour in germany me and Billy had stopped to
have a fuel break when the bus drove off without us, we rang the driver and
he stopped to drive back, we had to wait for about twenty minutes on the
side of a forest road. After 15 mins we saw this massive german bloke with
no top on carrying an axe through the woods. He screamed some stuff at us
and starting trying to charge at me and me and Bill. Just then the bus
turned up and we ran on locking the door behind us. He smashed up the front
of the Bus and we had to hold him off for an hour before the police turned
up. After they restrained him they told us he was a local psycho who had
just cut his family up............FUKIN BONKERS.
How do you prepare for a tour?
We go paintballing as adam used to work for British
Gas and he can still get a good rate on corporate events.....He sexed up a
woman who can get us a deal. We usually talk about girls for a bit and then
watch a horror film in a small room with zero ventilation, this event
prepares us for true Bus life..............FUKIN YES!
How have the group progressed musically and personally since debut album
I think we have tried to express ourselves in as best
a way as possible, Adam can stuff a load of fifty pence coins in his
foreskin and shake them like a Marraca.............This is actually true
which is what makes it even worse......Oh god hes going to kill me...Fuck
it...it is funny when he does it.

Maggot is trying to become the face of "Axe deodorant"

Was there and inter-band jealousy caused by Maggot's high profile post-Big
I was so upset by the whole affair that i locked
myself in my room for twelve weeks during the summer............That teached

Who are the group's musical and non-musical influences?
