What have you been wearing on stage? Anything new you've been liking?

Ewan Mackenzie (drums, @pigsx7)
Generally, I always wear a t-shirt of one of my favourite bands or musicians (Dalek, Thraa, Cocteau Twins, Can, to name a few on rotation). I also tend to wear a baseball cap, most recently with a 'P' or the pirate logo for the Pittsburgh Pirates. It's an interesting baseball club for a number of reasons (check out the story of Dock Ellis Jnr!). I also have to wear shorts on stage, as otherwise the post gig experience can become very uncomfortable. We were recently introduced to the concept of 'gig butt' on our tour of the US. The less said about that, the better!

For the Land Of Sleeper touring I’ve mainly been wearing a pair of Fairtex muay thai shorts which feature a really colourful kabuki mask design with a Stone Cold Steve Austin vest. I guess I’ll change something up whenever our next album comes around, but for now, this is my get up. I do not wear any footwear. Do you know how filthy most music venue stages are? They’re mostly very grim and leave the soles of my feet filthy. This is the price I must pay for my art.
