Wow, you seem to be tough as nails - any idea what you plan on doing when you graduate?

Hey Kev, you've talked in the past about how a Star Wars spin-off based on Boba Fett would be a no-brainer. Now that one is in the pipeline, can you give us an idea as to what take on the character you'd like to see?

Give that penis a sandwich,

You're out of the running for the script then I take it? ;)

Thanks for the answer man, appreciate it!

Wait, does the two hours take place entirely in the room? Or is there a longer, sit-down segment?

So this is a bit of a weird, personal...thing; I'm not even sure I'd really call it a question, more of a 'thank you'.

Round about the time I was starting my final year of uni, I was in a pretty bad way. I've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder for a couple of years, and medication can only really do so much. A few years earlier, I'd spent months doing little more than reading & listening to music, since it was just about the only thing that could get me out of my own head. I ended up reading Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie's 'Phonogram: The Singles Club', which turned out to be just what I needed. It was something I really ended up identifying with, and gave me a lot of cause for thought.

So when Jamie posted a couple of your early tracks; ZVVL and Science/Visions on his Twitter towards the start of my final year, I had to check them out. Each one of your tracks made me feel something I hadn't felt about music in a long time: excited. Along with some other synth & pop albums, your early demos and live sessions were a constant on my playlist; during the months I was feeling shitty and deeply suicidal, there was some relief in just putting on a great track that was quite unlike anything else, and you guys were a big part of that.

So I guess that's a long-winded way of saying that you guys have played a pretty big part in my life the last 18 months or so; both times I've seen you live you were absolutely fantastic, and I really look forward to seeing where you go in the future.

Iain, Martin & Lauren - thank you, and thanks for taking the time to read the angst of an early-twenty-something.
