JIM CHAN­CEL­LOR

Q (UK) - - The Maccabees -

Fic­tion Records MD

“I went to all three London shows. I did my cry­ing on the first one, I had a mosh on the sec­ond one and the third was a mix of the two. I’ve never felt like that with a band. I’d never ex­pe­ri­enced a band call it a day like that be­fore. The more I think about it, the more I think it’s the per­fect thing to do. Ev­ery record they turned in you’d go, ‘Oh my God, they’ve done it again!’ It’s been an amaz­ing jour­ney to see them grow and evolve and come out the other side. [ When the shows ended] I felt pretty dev­as­tated. I just stood there and cried for a bit. Af­ter quite a long time we all ended up in the dress­ing room and there was a lot of sob­bing and then we drank a spec­tac­u­lar amount of rosé and cham­pagne and thought, ‘Fuck it, just cel­e­brate, it’s time for the next chap­ter – what­ever that may be.’ As a bunch of guys, I be­lieve in all of them. I have no doubt they’re go­ing to suc­ceed in what­ever they do and I’m just very hon­oured to be part of what I think is one of the most per­fect rock ca­reers I’ve ever ex­pe­ri­enced in my life.”
