Tom shared: “I said to Serge [Pizzono], ‘Let’s go back to our roots, let’s go back to guitars.’ He said, ‘That’s what I’ve done.’ He played me the demos and I was like, ‘F***ing hell! That’s great that is.’ It’s nothing like ‘48.13’, there’s not f***ing interludes or any of that s**t.”
Meanwhile, guitarist Serge has revealed that they were inspired by John Lennon’s theory that rock ‘n’ roll is like a chair and you have to create your own version of that chair.
He told Q magazine: “I heard this John Lennon interview and he talked about the chair. He said what rock ‘n’ roll is, it’s just a chair and The Beatles’ version of rock ‘n’ roll was the chair. So I thought, ‘Wow, I want to make my version of that chair.'”
Meanwhile, Serge previously revealed that he’s been stockpiling guitar riffs, melodies and lyrics for their next record, but admitted a lot of it was “utter nonsense”.
He said: “I’m mooching about. I’ve got a little studio at home so I’m always in there, just escaping from reality … I hate phones, I can’t stand them but the one thing that I use is the voice recorder. The problem is I’ve just got thousands to sieve through and most of it is complete and utter nonsense. It’s me in the middle of the night, recording like a melody, and then going in the next day and it’s just like a load of noise – oh, it’s terrible!”
