completely written off. This is the first time you’ve played the whole album on tour, Wolf Alice. What’s the reaction been like? Joel: We’ve been playing ‘Silk’ and everything. ‘Turn to Dust’ in the encore. ‘Giant Peach’ is still the one going down best. It’s just that ending. We’ve got the lights and everything to blind everybody. It’s a completely different everything, this tour. Theo: It’s a lot more of a ‘show’ show for us. We’ve got proper production and we’ve had time to think about it. It’s less frantic. Hopefully people are liking it, or they just get bored. Like that guy who said he’d rather be on his Sky Sports News app instead of watching us. Eoin: That was on our Facebook page. And you know, we’ve all been there watching a shit support band. Getting out the Sky Sports app and then going on Facebook while they’re playing. Rob Graham, Drenge: I was really bored on stage, so I was on my Sky Sports app. How’s the glitter been selling? Ellie Rowsell, Wolf Alice: Everyone’s wearing it. Theo: We’re gonna make it like the Odeon where you can’t bring your own glitter in soon. The fans have been out since 7am and I went out to see them earlier. They asked me if I wanted a drink, I said no, and they unleashed a two litre bottle of whiskey. At 10am. It’s good to queue. But it’s also good to queue and not die. They’ll be there in the front row with a hangover and a coffee. How have Made Violent been, joining you guys on tour? Joel: They’re great fun. They’re really cool to have on tour. It’s so good live. Rory: They’re so American though. They’re just sat round drinking Budweiser and talking about hunting. You couldn’t get any more American than that. Ellie: It’s really weird watching them on stage over here and in America. They’re really talkative and then it’s so different when they’re playing somewhere like the Guildhall. Joel: They play American bars and there’s a lot of hollering. We miss that. Brixton must be a rite of passage for you guys. Joel: Brixton Academy has big memories for me. I went and saw Linkin Park here and I walked down
