Lea: “A lot of it is common sense. Me and Mark had a chat in the studio when we first started, saying what we wanted to set out to do and it all worked out fine. Naturally we don’t get in each other’s way.”
Mark: “We’re fortunate in that way. We can feel it. You can’t really explain it. There’s not that much scope to do something unexpected. I’m sure if we did do something unexpected we’d both look at each other. Or worse still George would turn around!”
Lea: “Then we’d both get sacked! This gig is all about the vocal and when we don’t play anything we get to have the best seat in the house listening to George sing.”
