  • Tim Williams - I also saw them play The Nashville, supporting Elvis Costello. That was a fantastic gig; I traveled with them in the back of the van. I remember Elvis Costello standing outside the Nashville waiting for it to open when we turned up and swigging from a carton of orange juice. It was cold, it was the end of the year, we invited him in the back of the van to keep warm. The guys were just taking the piss out of him basically, I felt quite sorry for him and stood up for him a little bit as he was ravaged by the questioning intellect of a bunch of 16 and 17 year old Bristol schoolboys. [What were they saying?] Just kind of ragging him really, and they had that kind of piss taking sense of humour. I don’t know whether it was his glasses or whatever, they were just taking the piss out of him. He's gone on to be an absolute super star, but that was it they had a real arrogance about them, which was all part of the thing that they created. - bristolarchiverecords
