Metronomy: “If you see a band wearing a waistcoat or a hat, they are shit!” (Q337 Preview)

metronomycropMetronomy leader Joe Mount has let Q in on the rules that govern his band.

Speaking to Laura Barton in our new issue, Q337 out now, the frontman reveals he has his own personal onstage etiquette.

“I’ve got rules like: I’d never touch the hands of the crowd. And I’d never step out onto a speaker. Or read out your website address,” he declares.

“And never wear a waistcoat or a hat. If you see a band where any single member is wearing a waistcoat or a hat, they are shit. I would challenge you to find an exception to that rule.”
