Dom was the long-haired jazz rocker whose parents saw his drumming as a hobby that would never lead anywhere - his interest in music as a child extended no further than messing around on his sister’s keyboard when he was five and drumming on anything he could find. One of his earliest memories is of catching a fish and hitting its head on the ground until its eye poppet out, an event about which he feels no little shame. Matt was the track suited wide boy with the flat-top haircut and danger in his snarl, who just happened to be a secret piano prodigy on the sly.
