Found an old radio interview from when the Bellies were in Boston last March.
I quite enjoyed this as Paul and Dave were feeling rather cheeky. :D

I listened to it again to get all the good bits. I love how Paul and Dave handle the interviewer's rather odd comments, all the while being the perfect gentlemen, sans snarkiness or attitude - masterfully done. :D

The interviewer asked where the name Bell X1 came from.
Dave: It was a NASA experiment; the first rocket to break the sound barrier. What year was that actually?
Paul: *in his best scholarly voice* Why that would be 1947 Dave.

After they played Bad Skin Day, the interviewer notes, "I have to say, you've beautiful skin - looking at both of you".
Paul: Well thank you. We've had a bit of work done.

The interviewer asked about Damien and declared that "he left Juniper and became a superstar".
Paul: Superstar? Is he a superstar?
Dave: We never heard from him again. He just left, disappeared.
Paul: He's in Tuscany growing vegetables as far as I know.

The interviewer asked Paul who shaped his voice when he was growing up/who he listened to.
Paul: David Byrne was a big influence. As a kid, I remember looking at videos, Talking Heads' videos, for songs like Road To Nowhere where there'd be this comedic daft element, which is very attractive. Even as a child you're very much drawn to that. I've always loved how unmacho they were, which has been quite an inspiration.
Interviewer: I would have to say, that is a word I would use for Bell X1: unmacho.
Paul kindly replied that there are some guitar moments and something about monitors that I couldn't make out. But what an odd thing to say. I don't think of Bell X1 as unmacho. :?

What piqued my interest was when Paul said the band used to swap instruments on stage but don't do that anymore as it caused a lot of falling over each other's gears. That would've been fun to see - someone should yell BELLIES FIRE DRILL! at their next gig.

Pigo - that was more than I expected, but thanks a lot for taking the time!
I owe you ;)

As for the 'unmacho' comment...yeah, that kind of fits :lol:

I was around a bit, but I'm more of a "reactive" poster.

"The band that is now the core of BELL X1 but at the time had a lead singer called Damien Rice - and what became of them all - sank into obscurity no doubt!" Dan Hegarty, 2FM 2006 (with tongue firmly in cheek)

Everyone leaves Dublin in the summer?
It's the opposite here; everyone leaves Toronto in the winter when all your nose hairs have froze because it's -20 degrees outside! :lol:

Not quite a mass exodus, but it does get noticeably quieter, especially since the weather's been so changeable :?

-20. Jaysus. :shock: The sun's just come out here after a day of heavy rain. I guess we don't have it all that bad :)
