|Four Day Hombre interview | Middlesbrough Empire | 27/09/03|
'Ooh, I love it when you're coy!' chips in Ash, giving his broad Yorkshire accent a distinctly camp air and making everyone laugh.
Getting back on track, Jason adds: 'I think an album will probably come after the single. We definitely have more than one album's worth of material ready to go, and we have the will and we have the way.'
The band's main aim is to continue to build up their profile: 'We just want to live off this - do this full time,' explains Rich, who enjoys both the full shows and the acoustic sets which Four Day Hombre perform: ' I think they've both got a place really, but I think if we could only do one, I'd do the full band.'
Asked about the songs they most enjoy playing live, they admit that nothing is set in stone: 'It's usually whatever we've written latest. Or something you haven't played recently,' says Simon. 'At the moment we've started playing some old stuff again and I've been really enjoying playing that.'
'It can be any song though,' Rich adds thoughtfully. 'I don't think it's any particular song; it's if a song goes well on that night.'
To end, then, the majority of reactions to the band have been extremely favourable, but has everyone been charmed by their vibrant guitars and soaring vocals?
'We had a review of the demo which said "Four Day Hombre have been penetrated by the double dildo of mediocrity",' says Simon, a wry smile suggesting that the description amused rather than angered him. 'That'll stay with me forever. Brilliant.'
