Festival Q&A:
The Everly
Pregnant Brothers

A powerhouse of parody fuelled on best bitter, pork pies and raucous gigs. The Sheffield band’s frontman Big Shaun tells us what to expect from their set at Cotton Clouds in Saddleworth, 12 August

Who else are you excited to see at Cotton Clouds Festival this year?
Sugarhill Gang are a must see, for that old school vibe obviously. Also looking forward to watching Pins – they’ve got some great songs.

What’s your best festival memory?
My favourite festival memory is looking out from the main stage at Kendal Calling at noon on a Sunday and seeing almost a thousand people slowly gather and get their EPB on. And also (on the same weekend) getting our van towed out of the muddy field by the biggest tractor we’d ever seen!

What are your festival essentials?
My festival essentials are moist toilet wipes and my poncho.

How does playing a festival differ from playing your own gig?

Less time to set up, soundcheck – less time to play – but priceless joy watching the faces of people who have never watched you before and are crying with laughter from the songs and lyrics.

What are you planning for your Cotton Clouds Festival set?

A rabble rousing set, topped off with The Brothers’ infamous classic No Oven No Pie. Hoping for plenty of crowd participation.
