<br />
<br />

Jay : Actually a Wall of Death opened before us, two skinheads were in the middle of it and when they were wating for the crashing together they were smashing each other with their boots in their faces...and then it went *buff*<br />
I was absolutely loving it.. standing there thinking &裟Oh my God...&裟<br />
Padge : Like &裟 I need to be down there&裟<br />
<br />
<br />
Question : Does it ever kick off in the crowd and you you actually thought this is really gone too far and you kinda felt sorry for the people down there ?<br />
Jay : Matt said something once before..<br />
Matt : Yeah...I stopped some songs before. Not because of us enticing stuff, just because things getting off hands, like literally fights breaking out. And we could see from where we stood people getting crushed,having a hard time and passing out and no one else could see it and we just stopped the show and said like &裟Chill the fuck out&裟<br />
<br />
Question : Are you looking forward to playing Download this year ? <br />
Matt : Very much <br />
Jay : Can&裟t wait to play Download, this is going to be wicked!<br />
<br />

<br />
Question : What would anyone in the band do if not playing music and touring the world? <br />
Jay: Playing music<br />
Padge : Probably a semi-professional alcoholic *laughs*<br />
Matt : Probably making music and not touring the world<br />
Jay : Yeah <br />
<br />
Question : Why did you change the lyric of what it now &裟Pleasure and Pain&裟<br />
Matt : Because we wrote that songs as we did and then we went into studio with our producer Don and he thought it could be better and so we rewrote it and it was [better]<br />
<br />
Question : Does it happen quiet a lot that you get so far in the production process and be brave enough to change things and choke whole things out? <br />
Matt : I mean like nothing&裟s ever 100% final until the album comes out , so just keep an open mind.<br />
<br />
Question : Was it a challenge coming from Wales and trying to make it into the music business ? <br />
Matt : Yeah it was. But I think it&裟s a challenge regardless where you from in the world .<br />
It&裟s just being in a band and trying to get a record deal is like win in the lottery unfortunately.<br />
It&裟s super hard.. but it&裟s not because we&裟re from Wales. It&裟s&裟cause it&裟s hard for everybody<br />
<br />
Question : Where did you start gigging? <br />
Matt : We did started of local, around this area Bridgend, South Wales, Cardiff Swansee and taht was fine. And we started off to Birmingham and we did the Barfly show a few times on sunday night. It escalated from there really.<br />
Padge : It did start to grow there in the Barfly <br />
<br />
Question :So do you actually remeber the night you got signed ? <br />
Matt : We know exactly when it was. It was a show in the Barfly ( London )<br />
Moose : Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong<br />
Jay : It was a terrible show but they loved it .<br />
MySpace : So there were a record label around there ? <br />
Matt: A few actually. After the gig we got the offers and then we had to get a layer and go into associations and stuff<br />
Moose : We signed the record deal and then the Rock&裟n&裟roll moment happened. The TV wouldn&裟t fit out of the window so we peed on it.<br />
MySpace : There&裟s plasma-screens...you can&裟t get them out of the windows anymore<br />
Jay : It was a big TV , with a big back, so we couldn&裟t get it out of the window and he ( points to Moose) peed on it.<br />
Matt : We also put a sofa through a wall...<br />
MySpace : But you put out the plug before you peed on it, right ? <br />
Moose : No I did not..I was so drunk...<br />
MySpace : A lot of current running through<br />
Moose : Well..we didn&裟t think , we were so happy you know... <br />
Jay : Oh we had a good old fight , don&裟t we ? <br />
We smashed the room up pretty well<br />
&裟Look at the TV, we couldn&裟t throw it out, but Moose pissed on it&裟<br />
Matt : We told the security guard to basically fuck right off. He was baging on the door, screaming, I opened it, the drunkest I&裟ve ever been ,staring him into the eyes, screaming into his face, telling him to fuck off. And he left.<br />
Moose : At that point we haven&裟t even sold a record at that point<br />
<br />
<br />
Question : Why are you touring with &裟FEVER&裟 in the US first ? <br />
Matt : Because we want to. We&裟ve always ..for the last two and a half albums started to here in the UK and this time we just wanted to do it a little different..there&裟s no business side reason to it, it&裟s just because we wanted to. And we&裟re be doing big european festival this summer so there is no point in doing a european tour now &裟cause in june we&裟re doing those big european shows anyway. So this is just lets do the US this time.<br />
Padge : It&裟s not because we wanna make of it money, we&裟re going to lose money propably... just soemthing we have to serve...it&裟s just sickly that we have to do...<br />
<br />
Question : Do you think that bands are resigned to losing money on these things ? <br />
Padge: These days definately<br />
Matt : It&裟s more about building to make a nut money.<br />
I mean we have made fortunately a bit of money which is amazing but we do sometimes a lot of tours pay-to-play-technically, &裟cause we have a lot of overheads we like to put on a show , especially with big headline shows .<br />
It&裟s still not about making money, it&裟s still early days in our career and we are still putting the money into more important things which is the shows, and crew and comfort.<br />
<br />
Question : Who would win in a fight ? <br />
Matt : I would regardless against who it is.<br />
MySpace : Oh sorry... it&裟s actually Zack Wilde or Kerry King ?<br />
Matt, Moose : Zack Wilde <br />
Moose : A fist fight ? <br />
Matt : As scary and feisty as Kerry can be, Zack&裟s a big boy and Kerry is quite small, so I think he would just overpower him unfortunately ..but I could be wrong..<br />
Moose : You never know..<br />
Matt: Kerry King could be like a letahl weapon badass..<br />
Padge : Kerry if you see this : Kick him in the nuts and it&裟s all over <br />
<br />
Question : Who would win in a fight between you guys if it came to it? <br />
Jay : All of us<br />
Moose : We probably beat each other up.<br />
Jay : Anyonewould give up until the others are knocked out properly...<br />
<br />
Matt : The last few years Jay and Padge constantly every night would get tank-drunk and fight.<br />
And then ten minutes later they&裟re like &裟Sorr man, I love you...&裟<br />
Jay : It was really bad a few times... we totally crashed this one hotel room in Japan...it was blood all over the wall...<br />
Moose : It was horrible...<br />
Jay : the table was smashed...our manager kick the door through to get into the room and stop us and get us off each other .<br />
And the next morning we had bite-marks on our faces, bloody eyes and we had to go to this interview and the guys were asking who we fought to it we pointed at each other.<br />
And why was it ? Becaus I drunk all the whiskey...<br />
Padge : Yeah, you took the last sip of whiskey<br />
Jay : Yeah ..and he tried to kill me.. I can just remeber I drank the last sip of it and he ran up to me, picking me up, slamming me to the floor and that was it...fighting for like 3 hours...<br />
