Matt talks about Choice of Support Acts

Page 10 of this weeks NME where Matt talks about the support acts - some snippets from it -

'While I (matt) was dealing with the visual stage stuff, dom was dealing with all those choices of support bands' ' they're great. The streets are on, CSS is that what they're called? We Are Scientists , Plus we've got MCR on the second day and we managed to get Biffy Clyro too'

'My Criteria was, 'Are they good people to hang around with?' as opposed to what is their music like?'

'So I can say on all counts they they're nice people to hang around with. I can definitely say that'

On Choice of MCR

'Gerard Way and MCR always put on a really good show. With what they've done on this latest album, there's a few moments that I really like. I like their kind of stuff that's around the fringe of what they are. I think what they are is a quite straight - and they're starting to add these elements to their songs. They're good showmen, they put on a good visual show'
'Our recent tour with them was a bit too doomed too quickly to really get to know them that well. They're really nice guys and very friendly towards us, they seemed to enjoy us very much and they were watching our gig every day. Musically our two bands are very far apart, I think there's a few fringe elements where there might be a collaboration, but the heart and soul is very different. But we have a slight crossover'

On Choice of The Streets

'Mike's a really good guy. We Toured with him in Australia for the Big Day Out, we got to hang out with them. Morgan used to play in his band although he doesn't any more, but I'm pretty sure he'll be drinking with them. Mike's really funny - I'm sure Morgan will be very happy to have two bands to get drunk with rather than just one. He's like a walking aftershow party'
