Band: The Boxer Rebellion

Interviewee: All

Venue: Relentless Garage, London

Date: October 22nd 2010

What is your most memorable live moment as a fan?

Radiohead doing Exit Music For a Film in Hammersmith was spine tingling. It was a sell-out crowd but you could have heard a pin drop. Also anything Sigur Ros did on their tour in 2008.

What is your most memorable live moment as a performer?

The Bowery Ballroom was great because of the vibe of the place, but probably the most memorable was this same venue this time last year. It’s kind of an adopted home town gig for the band, and after all the shit you go through on tour sometimes to come home and see 600 people there for you, giving it their all, it’s hugely inspiring.

Have you had any disasters on stage?

We played The Victoria Inn in Derby, which is supposed to be haunted. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. We blew the PA on the first song and had to go off stage again. After we came back on it just got worse. We had problems with both the bass and lead guitar, the hi-hat flew off and to top it off a deaf stray dog came on stage and started sniffing Todd’s crotch while he was playing. We finished by blowing the PA permanently on the last song.

Do you have any live performance aspirations?

We saw My Morning Jacket play a venue called The Greek in LA, which is in kind of a natural amphitheatre. I’d love to play there, plus it would be great to headline Brixton.
