Richard Hawley [Guitars]

"Not mentioning any names but our guitarist has a habit of leaving pubs face down, also the real reason why he was allowed to play on stage with Pulp during Common People was because, not only is he one of their best friends but he's the most common person they know. For some reason obviously by Crispins ability to turn up to Dover without his passport, Richard decides to top this by forgetting to get off the boat at Calais, without anyone realising it until paris. Oh dear..."

"[Identified] probably the easiest due to the fact he had a table full of beer..."

Simon Stafford [Bass]

"Simon used to own a capmer van, but some poor little kids pushed it down a hill, and smashed it up. When he gets to a services on tour, he always buys the biggest bag of crisps he can find. He used to clean the streets of London. And the naughty little rascal was once deported from Holland for stealing Tarpaulin from a building site where they were building a police station."
"[Seen] with his cheesy grin, chubby cheeks, and machine gun, it could only be Mr. Pacifist himself..."

Crispin Hunt [Vox]

"Crispin has a fascination with saunas, Jacuzzi's, mini bars and anything that seems to cost money, including peas which he has on toast for breakfast. The guitar he smashed, at T in the park, was only valued at £1700, so don't ask him to lend you a tenner for the next four months."

"[As he] would probably pull most of the birds in his nursery, not much has changed Crispin Hunt."

Dee Boyle [Drums]

"Dee Boyle, is renowned for checking into hotels with his Sheffield city library card, and when it comes to checking out, all we can say is he's still taking lessons, and trying to overcome that sleep problem of his. Likes Guinness a bit, of a lot, of an even bigger lot. His Mecca, for some strange reason is Bramall Lane, the home of his beloved Sheffield United and half-time pie feasts which he insists on having with that family favourite, Henderson's relish. (Some northern thing...)"

"With those dark eyes, and dark hair, and showing off a strangely Irish jumper, it has to be Dee Boyle."
