"A 14-year old Czech girl sitting by the radio and listening to a show broadcast by the BBC to her country which re-gained freedom only six weeks earlier. She doesn't know the band but loves the music! That girl is me and I still have the bootleg I made that night."
"There's something about performing our songs in front of a large crowd which works. It's to do with the fact that a lot of those people at those shows are there to celebrate not just their favourite band or a favourite band, but actually part of their history and their life and the music that they have grown up with. As much as we're getting applauded, I think people are also applauding themselves and their experience and their life."
