Nice work. Although I'll have to stop using the heavy cockney accent I always used while reading your posts.

That is very neat. Congratulations. I hope you get very successful very quickly, and then we can say we knew you back before you were famous.

You sound like you're 10x more sane than the DJ. And I didn't expect that. You should have used the opportunity to plug Celebrity Lando.

Great song, btw.

Nicely done! You didn't sound a bit nervous and you got your minute in perfectly. Wish you all continued success.

yes that was surprising to me too. Stefan came across as an intelligent, articulate man, while the dj came across as a wanker.

I didn't see this but I'm listening now.

Also no slagging on Steve Lamacq. I am excited to find out what song is played.

It was a good song and a good interview. Maybe we'll have to accept your awesomeness now.

Stef's accent sounds like Martin Gore's. This is my first time listening to any sonicflyer songs, and it is pretty good.

Thanks everyone.

Steve Lamacq was cool. He seems like a nice enough fella. He's got a slightly intimidating tone, and he takes music very seriously, but he doesn't make me want to carve words into my arm or anything.

Anyway, I was a bit nervous before they put me on air because at the last minute the producer explained that Steve would just be asking me a few questions and then I would have a minute to say whatever I wanted about the band - 60 seconds of dead air, with just my voice to fill it. I hadn't been expecting that at all, and I wasn't really prepared.

"I hadn't been expecting that at all," I said to the producer, "And I'm not really prepared."
"Oh, you'll be fine," he replied, "Just don't SWEAR! Right, I'm putting you through to Steve now..."

It all seemed to go well in the end, and I managed not to SWEAR. It's lucky I don't have Tourettes really, isn't it.

Also, our first live review, from our last gig, seems to have made its way onto the internet. It's half-way down this page (http://the-waiting-room.20six.co.uk/):

"First up were Sonicflyer a female fronted shoegazey sort of band - I was very impressed by the huge pedal board that the lead guitarist had (I'm always a sucker for lots of LEDs on the floor). And I really enjoyed this lot - they had good variation in pace and approach whilst maintaining chiming guitars and occasional harmonising vocals and there were some good hooks in their guitar lines. However they were a bit restrained, and I was disappointed by the lack of true noise - perhaps they were holding back as half the audience seemed to be made up of band parents!"

Hmph. That's the last time I invite my Dad to a gig then.
