Walking into Larrikin loves dressing room its quite obvious that there's not going to be much of a interview here, fresh from celebrating guitarist's Micko Larkin's birthday, they seem a little worse for wear..
So, what's the story behind Larrikin Love?
Right. So, how would you describe yourself to someone that's never
heard Larrikin Love before?
Its all going swimmingly, but at this point in walks 'Pete', their sound tech, who I'm told is fresh from prison. Ahem.
How's the tour been so far?
How has the reaction been to the album so far?
At this point Edward calls a break in the interview to discuss my lip ring, and he tells the others that I've fallen into some "lip metal". Right, moving on..
What has it been like recording under label pressure? Did they try
and control the bands sound?
Are you looking forward to the Dirty Pretty Things tour in December?
Finally, what's next for Larrikin Love?
And with that, I leave, with the band telling me how bad they feel
because they weren't very responsive, but as its Micko's birthday, can
I let them off?
Thanks to Claire at Hall or Nothing for setting things up...
