Last night they loved you...
The band happily answered questions as diverse as Simone's: "Do you have pets?" (two peacocks, 3 highland cows, 14 snakes, 1 llama and a gaggle of bats) and Andromache's: "What is your favourite pasta shape?" (Grasshopper - Bowtie. Jeff - Fucilli. Jonathan - Enneagrammo)...and they even had the good grace to answer Alecz's predictably boring and miserable question "What's it like being the most boring and miserable band in the world?" with: "I don't know, you'd have to ask the Manic Street Preachers." He he.
The subject of David's music was mentioned on more than one occasion, and it soon became clear that his appreciation of Mercury Rev was mutual when dbfan1847 asked: "...Do you listen to any of David's music? and if you do, what are some of your fave songs by him?", this was their reply:
"Yeah we love David's music. Some of our favorites are: Jonathan - Duet with Bing Crosby. Jeff - Quicksand from Hunky Dory. Grasshopper - Ashes to Ashes"
You still have time to catch Mercury Rev live in Philadelphia tonight and New York tomorrow. The band also have five Japanese dates starting next Monday 17th December, perhaps Eri will put you up if you ask nicely. Go
By the time you read this, you should be able to read the full transcript of last night's chat (including David and Tony's questions) here...if not, pop back a little bit later, if it's still not up try a little bit later and so on. };-)
