Last Valentines day, I went to The Borderline in London to watch Palladium perform, and also to interview them. They are lovely guys and I got a good interview for the student newpaper, Canvas. Here are some of the bits that they didn’t include in the article, plus a link to the article!
Liz: Where did u all meet?
Peter: Well we all met in London, ‘cause we were doing bits of session work. So…yeah, word of mouth you know, it’s not a big music scene in London really, so everyone knows each other
Rocky: Yeah we all met doing a small gig. That’s when we did our first gig together , in Greenwich. And then the next couple of days later, Pete asked me and Rufio to come and do a little bit in the studio, and it kind of all went from there, you know!
Peter: That would have been October 2006
Liz: As it is valentines day, how many cards did you receive?
Rocky:You know what, you wanna know truthfully…97! But that’s an absolute lie!None,I got none. You know what? My mum called me and gave me a valentines greeting.
Liz: Have any of you given any Valentines day cards or…?
Peter: I got one.
Rocky: We didn’t get any you know! (speaking to readers) Send us Valentines gift!
Fez:No, I’m not bothered!
Peter: Fez doesn’t agree with it, Fez thinks it is some horrible pagan ritual.
Rocky: Yeah I manage to always, “skilfully” manage to miss having a girlfriend on Valentines day. Bit gutted about it, but saving some money.
