Have The Feeling Got News For You?
NEW: In a new series of interviews we get pop's top acts to tackle the week's big music headlines...
Welcome Dan, Richard, Kevin, Ciaran and Paul...
News story 1: Keane have brought out a range of household goods (including shower curtain and coaster set)...
Paul: I reckon this is because whenever theyre on tour theres never a shower curtain or a toaster and they thought, 'Right if we have one on our merchandise stall, well never be stuck.'
Dan: Coaster, not toaster...
Paul: Oh. Well a toaster is a bit more useful isnt it? We could have The Feeling toasters.
Ciaran: And a The Feeling hoover.
Kevin: How about having The Feeling inflatable companion?
Dan: Would I buy a Keane shower curtain?
Rich: Are there pictures of Tom on it?
Dan: There arent pictures of his head on there! Have you ever seen Psycho? Sorry that was mean, maybe if it was a nice-looking shower curtain with their logo on it I'd buy it.
News 2 story: Last week The Sun ran a Stop The Cocks campaign to stop Westlife beating Oasis in the album charts...
Rich: Are they saying Westlife are cocks?
Dan: Thats quite harsh, the boys are just doing what they do " theyre totally different markets as well. Its awful when people turn music into a competition
Paul: The tabloids love that though " and youve got the word c*ck in there as well so theres the sex element.
Dan: Theres sex, competition and violence all in one headline. Great!
Ciaran: Keep up the other lot, or write a better song.
Dan: Who'd we rather have dinner with? I think Westlife because with Oasis youd eat your dinner and then theyd just...
Ciaran: Punch you.
Rich: I think it would be more interesting having dinner with Oasis, but I dunno if theyd wanna have dinner with us...
News 3 story: Take That mania strikes again...
Dan: I really like Take That, Im glad. Its great to have The Barlow back on the radio
Kevin: You cant beat a bit of The Barlow.
Rich: They could be successful again, 'cos youve got bands like Status Quo whove also got a massive fan base and they carry on touring every year. They could do that if they wanted.
Dan: I dont know how they feel about their fans standing outside shivering waiting for an autograph though. That makes us feel awful. It's alright in the summer when they wait for you, but queuing in the cold? Poor girls...
News story 4: Britney Spears has been 'over'-partying...
Kevin: Is there a baby issue here or something?
Paul: Shes just had a new one hasnt she? Shes got two now. When did she get the new one?
Ciaran: Shes been going through a hard personal time...
Dan: You cant tell someone to stay at home though can you? You cant lock em up...
Rich: Im sure shes with the kids during the day and that she gets someone to look after them at night?
Kev: Yeah, her husband.
Rich: No, theyve split up
Kev: Oh, have they? Oh, I see
Dan: As long as she doesnt lock her kids up in the cupboard before she goes out, she can do what she likes. You don't think she does though so you?
News story 5: Noel Gallagher said if he had one bullet and two targets he'd shoot Robbie over Phil Collins...
Paul: Thats the right answer, I mean if he had to choose.
Dan: Whats wrong with Phil?
Kev: Hes said something derogatory about Phil before.
Rich: Theyve got personal issues though havent they, Noel and Robbie? They used to be best friends, its a love/hate thing.
Dan: Who jilted who at the alter though?
Rich: Maybe they had the same thing with Phil? Something that didnt work out
Ciaran: Maybe Phil dumped Noel by fax?
Dan: Culturally Phil is not cool, but we rise above that because we think Phil is great.
Paul: And I personally find him a massive inspiration on the drum set.
'Love It When You Call' by The Feeling is out now.
