Velofax are cool - it's true. In fifteen years time when they have conquered the charts so many times that they have taken to wearing big Bono sunglasses and spouting loads of righteous crap about the third world and AIDS, perhaps this wont be the case. But right now they are hot. So we thought we'd ask singer/guitarist Chris Wackrow to do some word association with us... around the theme of media of course.

RUPERT MURDOCH

News.  I know our bass player Kevin is not a big fan but neither am I particularly. We recorded our album opposite his empire funnily enough. I think The Sun and all those papers are a bad thing. It’s horrible.  They are responsible for keeping people thick.
 
TABLOIDS
Haemorrhoids.

MEDIA WHORES
You mean people like Paris Hilton?  They shouldn’t get paid. I don’t care about any of them. They’re probably lonely, pathetic people inside… but some of them have great tits!
 
PAPARAZZI
Is a fantastic Pizza topping. We’re too alternative to face the limelight and we’ve had no personal experience of the Paparazzi but having seen them in action they are like animals in the Serengeti waiting to pounce on their next prey.

NEWSNIGHT
Bedtime.  Boredom.  Jeremy Paxman.  I’m not an avid viewer to be honest unless the subject matter is interesting. I prefer to watch The South Bank Show... or Coast.
 
COCAINE
The media are full of shit and so are people when they’re on coke so the two things are perfect for each other.

CELEBRITY
I can see the fascination with celebrities but it is all bollocks.  People should worry about their own happiness rather than someone else’s.

EMBEDDED JOURNALISTS
I’m a singer in a band, not a politician.
