What’s on your rider? The raglans CORK DERRY DUBLIN CAR­LOW KILKENNY WICK­LOW

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

What’s on your rider?

What­ever they give us. We’re not fussy.

What would be on your fan­tasy rider?

Ev­ery­thing and any­thing. Wa­ter, fruit, beer, pizza, hum­mus.

What’s the best gig you’ve at­tended?

It’s not re­ally a gig, but last year’s Elec­tric Pic­nic was amaz­ing.

And the worst?

Ste thought he saw Pub­lic En­emy once but it turns out it was just their road­ies sound check­ing.

Tour bus bunks, ho­tel rooms or couch-surf­ing?

We can only speak from ex­pe­ri­ence, so we’ll go with air mat­tress on a kitchen floor. That or the van.

Who is the most fa­mous per­son to have shown up at one of your gigs?

Chris Moyles, Keith Allen, John Cooper Clark and King Nidge are a few “fa­mous” people who have come to see us.

Tour bus tunes? Which are your ones for the road?

A bit of ev­ery­thing, depend­ing on whose iPod is plugged in.

Chat­ting be­tween songs – good or bad?

Noth­ing wrong with it. But no­body wants to hear your life story or how you wrote that song about that girl while sit­ting be­hind a shed dur­ing the best sum­mer of your life.

How big is your en­tourage?

It’s mainly just us, but we have a few help­ing hands mu­sic. Deighton Hall 8.30pm 114 car­lowarts­fes­ti­val.com

While on tour, do you do your own laun­dry?
