Miloco: Who was your studio assistant, and how was your studio assistant?
DRN: Catherine Marks – She has a good soul and was in and out of the way at the right times in the right places all day.
Miloco: How did you come about working with Ciaran Bradshaw on this project?
DRN: He was recommended to us by Nick Seymour. He heard us and wanted to hear more.
Miloco: What does Ciaran bring to the project that other producer engineers wouldn’t?
DRN: He knows that how he feel while playing is very important. We also like dressing up. We dress up sad or happy, sexy or sassy, tough or angry. He knows our songs backwards and is like a fifth member.
A few silly questions / requests that really don’t mind silly answers!! –
Miloco: The song you wished you’d written:
DRN: ‘Orinoco Flow’ by Enya
Miloco: The song you’re glad you didn’t write:
DRN: ‘The Birdie Song’ by The Tweets
Miloco: What’s the strangest rumour you ever heard about yourself?
DRN: That I chew the floor and eat heros on a shelf.
Miloco: You are placed in front of a time machine. Which year in history would you travel to and why?
DRN: I’d go to before ‘Back To The Future’ was made and I’d make a bet that it would be made. I’d win loads of money and spend it on honey
Miloco: Draw us a picture!
Miloco: Any additional info you’d like to let us know about?
DRN: We like beans
