I’m not sure how that’s been connected with our music, though. We used to wear tracksuits and play rock ‘n’ roll in a way. But even that, I think, linked up to the sound of the first record… and I just think you just move on. I like it when a band looks cool, for sure. It’s fuckin’… Like, I went through the same thing with The Strokes. When they came out, I went and got a pair of Converse and drew on me jeans and borrowed your mum’s blazer. Your mum’s blazer. My mum’s blazer. Your momma’s blazer. And wore a tie. Didn’t quite get it right!
