ELECTRIC SOFT PARADE QUOTES 2002: TRANSLATIONS
Route Du Rock, Haldern, Benicassim + French interviews

Here’s something from the old official website: “My dad played the clarinet and he plays the piano now” says Alex, the more talkative of the pair and thus the band’s natural spokesman. “He is very into music, classical music, so we were taught classical music and listened to classical music, as well as the ‘classics’ of rock and pop, like the Beatles”

When they eventually found a way of channelling their youthful exuberance into something worthwhile, it was, initially at least, little more than an excuse to indulge in a spot of teenage drinking out of reach of the elements. “It just kind of evolved, as most things do, I guess. It was all very much a mate’s thing, just hanging out, and we’d play music as well. We’d set it up like a gig and get our mates along and have a party. It was a good excuse to get bottles of White Lightning or Strongbow and, rather than sitting in the cold park to drink it, sit in the cricket pavilion. We’d play a mixture of songs we’d written, which started off as two and then it was three and then four, and stuff we were listening to at the time. Stuff like the first Ash album and Everything Must Go by the Manics”
