A self-confessed tired Albino Priest and Wrekked Train sit
down by the table near the cloakroom.
"I know it's only been four dates so far but it's been
non stop really, so we're all a little knackered," begins
the Priest, "We've got the weekend off and then three
more dates after that and then we'll be recording some B-sides.
So it will be more relaxing in a couple of weeks."
The Lo-Fis weren't expected to develop into a band. Maybe
the tiredness stems from that but with the taste of band life
has the band found it wants certain levels of success?
"I don't know," starts the Wrekked Train. "We're
quite happy with the way it is at the moment. I wouldn't want
to be as big as someone as U2. We're sought of taking it in
our stride. It feels quite natural. I mean our first gig was
quite experimental. We didn't set out to be a huge dance band.
Its sought of escalated and its felt right and if it doesn't
feel right, then we'll stop doing it and do something else."
The band don't really have a home town as the members hail
from different parts of the country as the Priest explains.

get to one I mean when we play Brighton it's always packed
and when we played Leeds the other night it was absolutely

would you consider playing the smaller venues, to be a little
personal with your fans?
"The thing is you've got to look at it quite logically
because of the demand for people to see us," starts the
Train. "I mean if we went to the smaller rooms and there
are four hundred people outside that's unfair and we'd be
making ourselves unpopular," he laughs aloud then continues.
"We would probably get enough people to fill the smaller
rooms but I can't see it happening."
"We won't be a big stage band whatever happens. That
sought of thing's horrible," admits the Priest.
The Train continues to the consider the fans "I can see
very little point in sitting or standing at the back not being
able to see or being outside listening. I mean you might as
well go home and listen to the album." >>
