To me the new album (which I really like by the way) sounds less "layered" and more lively than ...Must Be Destroyed, especially the guitars. Can you confirm this is the case?

(apologies everyone for this slightly geeky question)

Ginger, in the recent article in Kerrang you stated that, as far as depression goes, taking medication is just pushing your problems off in the corner.

I'd like to know why you feel justified in making that statement. It may be what works for you, but isn't it irrepsonsible and naive to think that everyone with depression (especially clinical depression) can get by without prescription medication?

EDIT: A further discussion on this topic continues here.

This kind of a multi-parter and has most likely been asked before, but I'll ask it just in case.
Have the band been approached to play Jools Holland's Later,or any other current TV music shows, and if not are you pushing your PR people to get the band on. If not, I would be interested to hear what the rationale is behind not appearing on these shows.

and on the subject of TV appearances is there a plan to get The New Flesh a slot on Channel 4? They tend to have video premiers around 11pm and getting the new single on there could help a mount a serious attack on the charts.

Hey Ginger,

I noticed that on the Howling Willie album, and also during the encore of "I Wanna Go" recently at Milton Keynes, you played an extract from the theme tune of Z Cars. Was this a tribute or merely a coincidence? One of the TV highlights of my childhood days was the fire brigade of "Trumpton". Any chance for your next acoustic tour that you could take a look at that wonderful guitar piece as Pew, Pew, Barney, McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb slid down the pole and jumped into the engine ready for action?

OK, last question this time around. Why oh why such a shortage of XL Tshirts during the tour? I managed to grab a shield and radiohead T in XL, but what I really was looking for was the album cover T in XL so I can proudly fly the flag and spread the word back home. We're not all lean mean fighting machines like the band......the large size T makes me look as though I have bigger tits than my fourteen year old Niece!

How / where can I grab a couple of XL album Ts?

At the Newcastle there was only Large & XXL of the album sleeve. XXL is rather comfy.

Back on topic!

sure you've probably been asked this before but fuck it....
you've never hidden your love for country music and in recent years its become far more prominenent influence on your songs - have you considered re-recording 'truth'?

"The Revolution Will Be Televised"

I've heard that C.J. admitted that this song ("The Revolution Will Be Televised") sounds a lot like Green Day. To my ears, it sounds like it could have been included on American Idiot.

Was this intentional? Maybe a British perspective on the world events they commented on?

P.S. You guys are WAY better vocalists than Green Day could ever dream of being. :D
