To celebrate the release of last months Split 10" featuring KONG, That Fucking Tank, Castrovalva and Shield Your Eyes (out on Brew Records - Limited to 300 copies on orange vinyl) we got Castrovalva to ask Kong some questions, and Kong to ask That Fucking Tank some questions.

Castrovalva asking Kong questions:

Worst Tour/Gig Experience ever...and what happened?

Magpie (Kong) - Jesus Christ, take your pick. There's thousands, they're all bad! I'd go for LULU shitting his y-fronts on stage in France though. He ate steak tar tar in some shit hole restaurant a few hours before the show and I think during the first tune he farted and blew out some fizzy gravy, it was hilarious, he played the rest of the whole show stood rock still! His pants after had a perfect circular blob of turd in the middle surrounded by a huge ring of sweat like the devils fried eggs! Thing is we then played London next and they were still in his stage box, all the white elastic had gone brown, so he coloured them in with felt tip pen and wore them again. Filthy lulu.

If you were a professional wrestler, who would you face at WrestleMania and why?

Magpie (Kong) I'd go for someone like "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan or maybe Dino Bravo, any mid-card drug addict would do though...at least we could get smashed after.

Kong asking That Fucking Tank questions:

What makes you get butterflies, in your tummies, sometimes?

Andy Abbott (Tank) - I'm reminded of an anecdote Stef from Shield Your Eyes told me about asking a similar question to a surly drummer-friend of his (from an undisclosed band) in relation to their playing live and whose reply was 'Never, you'd have to give a shit to get nervous.' I feel we're not quite at that level of jadedness but I will say that I tend to be more twitchy about whether or not the venue will have a decent real ale on tap than whether we're going to play all the notes in our songs right. I was quite scared on our recent tour with SYE and Tank when we camped in Loch Lomond on our day off and thought we were going to have to fight off a gang of Moaty-lads.

When struggling with life stuff, what is the best plan of action lads?

Andy Abbott (Tank) - It's different for everyone I suppose, but in general I don't think there's many of life's problems that can't be addressed with a fine pint of real ale and a quick spin of Led Zeppelin III.

James Islip (Tank) - When the chips are down, I normally eat more chips. Or a Pizza.
