No worries, always happy to buy you guys a beer 🍻❤️

Or, did I just pay for the subscription to get some recognition from my favourite band and will now immediately cancel it? We will never know.

What beer was it though, that's the question? So glad it was enjoyed, I love being here!

I think the whole Brooklyn accent thing is probably revenge for Americans always portraying British accents as either super posh for Cockney

Thanks so much for clearing all that up - I’ve taken the liberty of finding out some functions of the humble neckerchief: for morse code, for knot practice, for a makeshift bandage, for a smoke signal, to patch a canoe, etc.

You can pronounce it za-FAR if you like. My husband uses that pronunciation as more of a stage name because it sounds pretty excellent announced over a mic. Though it is za-fur (like suffer, but with an a) 🫠

I love that you don’t sound like Charli XCX because she’s already the best at doing that. But would love to hear more about what hip hop you’re into? Also have to agree with what you say about not being excited about artists within your genre: Nobody does it better. It actually makes me feel sad for the rest. Nobody does is HALF as good as you. Babies(??) you’re the best.

Also, how have you never come across a “which animal would win in a fight?” debate before? I remember having this conversation with my sister before my wedding 25 years ago about a rhino and a tiger, or such like (her question). And my son recently posed the question at dinner - Who would win, a billion lions or the sun? Admittedly, this could be a little more esoteric, but the whole battle thing is surely universal.

Thanks for this! I think, out of all your features, I love the Stoop Chats most. I probably was not expecting quite so much chat about chest hair tonight but it’s always good to defy expectations, I guess.

Would just like to confirm that you are definitely doing what you do better than anyone else so it totally makes sense that you would choose other genres to listen to. It seems obvious now you’ve said it, but thanks for clearing that up.

As always, you’ve made me laugh a lot too. Loved the comparison of the straightening iron to a bite from a hot duck! Looking forward to the next one.

Genuine question. What is 227ing?

Yay! A discussion about songwriting.

I like listening to you guys and other rock esque bands, but most of what I write is very Bon Iver. It’s super interesting how as much as I love rock, I’ll probably never make a good rock song. (Also, my songwriting coach Greta Morgan said I sounded like Bon Iver, and some rando I met in group therapy once. Am I the new Bon Iver? Who knows!)

Also, I’ll never call my straightener anything but a hot duck now.

Bloody brilliant, as always! I chuckled my way through on my walk to work and received some rather strange looks from passer-by’s. So yeah...thanks for making me look crazy I guess!
