I suppose in the end it's almost too easy to look back and say what you should have done, how you might have changed things. What's harder - what's much, much harder - is to accept what you actually did do.
There's a very fine line between being artistic and being a dickhead - it's like love and hate.
It's quite ironic I suppose, it's that thing about being in a group when you all start out as friends and then invariably end up hating each other. So I just thought they needed telling really, in case they were labouring under the apprehension that they were still friends.
The chemistry involved made everything Factory did quite special.

I think people expect mud at festivals, I think you'd be asking for your money back if you didn't get it.
Nobody is the same. If we were all the same it would be bloody boring.
The fact is that you don't want to be away forever, but you want to lead a normal life.
