2. Describe your music.: Pop with big sharp teeth.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: We started off as a duo then kept adding more dudes until there was five us and we were ready to take on/over the world. That’s not three sentences but I guess you were just trying to avoid our life stories, nobody needs to hear those.

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: Dreamt of being in a band, attempted some sports, skimmed a few stones, drank milk etc.

Tom- Robin Hood Prince of Thieves Soundtrack
Nick- Once Again Queen Latifa is Back – De La Soul and Queen Latifa
Matt-Now 32
John- REM Automatic for the People

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: We’re playing Reading, Leeds and End Of The Road festivals which we’re turbo excited for then there should be another tour and possible single around October if all goes to plan.

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: Not had fan mail in the post but had some whacky emaiIs. At a gig Nick was once given ‘love heart’ with a fanny drawn in biro on the back.

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : There’s often a lot of Rap classic’s like DRE 2001, 90’s NOW tape collections. We also rock plenty of Hold Your Horse Is and other family Alcopop and BSM bands.

9. What gear do you use?: Mostly Martin, Fender, Gretsch, Gibson, Cooke and Johnson. Maybe they will send us some free stuff for this sweet plug??

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: Something bad always happens to Nick when we play in France. Usually involving keys, staircases and piss. I’ll leave it at that.

11. What do you demand on your rider?: I don’t like to demand anything but we’d be very happy to find a few litres of chocolate milk and a copy of Mandolin Monthly.

12. What’s your website?: http://www.stagecoachuk.com/
