Check out this nice interview with Babeshadow!
What’s for breakfast?
Usually something completely unsuitable like a rich pasta dish. We’re always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
What’s the best food city and why?
Best place we’ve eaten was called ‘Under the Stairs’ in Edinburgh. Everyone ordered something different and we were all mighty impressed. Edinburgh is probably the best we’ve experienced on our tours.
What’s the first food you eat when you get home from tour?
Usually, we will still be drunk, so nothing.
What food is on your backstage rider? Or what food do you wish was on your backstage rider?
We always request fruit. Kiwi, bananas, lemons and apples.
What’s the weirdest thing you have eaten on tour?
Tom will eat about 3 cucumbers a day, and I’ll usually buy a fish and everyone hates me for it.
Regular or Diet?
I’m regular, the doctor weighed me last week and I’m under 10 stone, so I could do with puffing up a bit.
Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Raw?
None of us are vegetarians. Our drummer Sam and I will tuck into a sushi. Tom will have a cucumber instead.
Spicy or Mild?
I think were all somewhere in between the two.
What’s on your bar tab?
Always a grand supply of Spitfire Ale. Some vodka and then by that point we can’t remember.
Do you see the dessert menu?
Never. We are all savory.
Best fast food?
Boojum Burritos in Belfast.
Favorite cocktail? How do you make it?
Don’t really do this. We are brusque drinkers.
Do you grow your own food?
I have cress in my room but I didn’t request it.
Are you adventurous or stick to trusted favorites?
My eating is always very visceral. This almost always backfires. I need to calm down and just eat a cheese sandwich every now and then.
Coffee? How do you take it?
Coffee makes my heart stop.
Do you like to cook?
Tom is the cook in the babeshadow household. Very talented.
Broccoli and Stilton soup. This may be because a girl I love made me this once.
Pepper. Is that boring?
Favorite midnight snack?
It changes too often. Again It’s usually highly inappropriate for it’s hour.
Do you eat for pure taste or nutritional value?
Nutrition is tasty. I always win.
What do you eat before you hit the stage?
Never. And I don’t want to find out what happens if we did.
If your sound had a taste, what would it taste like?
Pineapple salad with coco beans.
Do any of your songs conjure thoughts of food? If so, which ones? and what would it taste like?
We have a song called juice. It refers more to politics than apples though. Personally, I wouldn’t eat a sea serpent.
Anything else you want to add?
If your full, just stop. ok?
