Quote of the day

"Backstage, Slipknot and Rage Against the Machine were coming up to us and telling us how hardcore we were – how they wouldn’t have stayed out there. It was definitely the best thing we did, our crowning achievement."

Daphne & Celeste recall the experience of being bombarded with bottles of piss while attempting to perform at the Reading Festival in 2000. I was there for the Leeds leg, and it wasn't much different - though they didn't get a wheelchair lobbed at them there. "Someone lost their mobility because they hated us so much!"

Tim Jonze's interview with the pair is prompted by the fact that they've got a comeback single out - bizarrely written and produced by Ben Jacobs aka Max Tundra, who has himself been out of the limelight for some time. And it's pretty good...
