I interviewed dubstep/D&B duo Nero about LARPing, Nero-esque tendencies and their forthcoming album, Welcome Reality.
I don't think they were quite ready for this:
I read a tweet the other day about a famous band whose rider stipulated that it must include 'a locally sourced present'.
'We had something like that in New Zealand. I got given a mug that someone had customised with paints and glitter, which said “We love Nero” on it. Then they gave us a teapot to go with it and it contained the cheapest, most horrible vodka ever. But I took the mug home, because it was nice to remember our fans out there want to customise mugs for us.'
That sounds a bit 'Blue Peter'.
'Yeah, I know. Giving a DJ a mug on a big night out is a bit weird.'
