The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS -

What’s on your rider? A piece of ginger. It’s not very imag­i­na­tive, is it?

What’s the best gig you’ve

been to? I saw Lau a few months ago. They gave me shiv­ers like no other. And the worst? Any gig where peo­ple are not lis­ten­ing rather dis­turbs me.

What are your favourite and

least favourite venues? There is a place in Dorn­birn, Aus­tria called Tik, which I re­mem­ber as be­ing very spooky.

Most em­bar­rass­ing on-stage

mo­ment? I once used the word “tantric” in the wrong con­text and went red. What’s your crowd-pleas­ing num­ber? Some like The Burger Van song.

Groupies. Would you? Ha! Have you a spe­cial stage wardrobe? I don’t have many clothes. Full stop. What’s the worst thing ever thrown at you? Well, it wasn’t thrown, but some­one blew a high-pitched dog whis­tle at us last night. If you could be in any other band, which one? I would like to do an ap­pren­tice­ship in a band like Björk’s. What’s your best tour story? I did a rap for an en­core a few nights ago.

In con­ver­sa­tion with Tony Clatyon-Lea. Rachel Ser­manni plays Din­gle tonight; Clon­akilty, Co Cork on Wed­nes­day; and Cork on Thurs­day
