“When I was growing up, I played cymbals. I had a Sabian starter pack for 10 years. I was playing in metal bands at home, it was all very heavy, I loved it.
“Then I went to uni in Leeds, I started playing with these guys. We were playing in a bedroom, we had so little room that originally I had just a snare drum. Then I brought my bass drum from home and I was using those.
“For a hi-hat I used a saucepan that I turned upside-down and tied to my leg. The pan worked - it had the right sound and that’s actually on the album.
“It was mounted onto a boom stand. I couldn’t use it live anymore because it wouldn’t stay still. It was a nightmare, so I got a cowbell and that’s packed with newspaper so it doesn’t have much resonance.”
