The Candle Thieves

"We're pretty friendly but you have to remember that these people are businessmen," states the Glock. "You think that spending a lot of time with people you think you can get that sort of friendship bond but you have to keep reminding yourself that there are not your mates.

"When we went to SXSW for 4 days I forgot to turn off the 'data roaming' on my iphone and I got a bill for a thousand pounds," laughs Scott. "I also find it more nerve racking playing to lots of people. If there are less people you can look them all in the eyes." He laughs again, "and that's when I start making mistakes."
