How do you feel to be playing on the bill at this year’s Neighbourhood Festival?
Yeah, class. Always feel really welcome in the north so looking forward to putting on a show.

What informs your music and songwriting?
Informs? Most of our music derives from straight-up, honest, indie rock ‘n’ roll – heart on your sleeve material while maintaining our best in the game attitude.

How have you evolved as a band over the years?
It’s insane, the progress we’ve made. From gigs in shady pubs when we were 16-year-old wee guys with bad haircuts and even worse jeans to taking over the whole scene in Scotland, we’ve had a pretty good run at it. Now our sights are south of the border to bring our brand of rock ‘n’ roll UK wide.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?
Second single out just now called Manhattan Project. Constantly got vibes working in the back ground as well so we move quite quickly artistically.

What’s on your rider?
Buckfast Tonic Wine – God’s juice. Joko loves Turkey Twizzlers too.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
Embarrassing moments account for over 80 per cent of my life but I’ve previously had to play an entire gig in the queue for a bar due to stage size issues.

What song do you wish you’d written?
Think it’s important to keep it fresh with music. Everything has its place in time and I’d rather be writing the tunes we are right now than anything else.

What’s your worst lyric?
Is it egotistical to say it’s all gold?
