Gavin: I got bit back in England when I was in primary school by some cruddy bloke from London. It took a while to get used to; shifting is pretty bloody uncomfortable – although I am glad I just end up turning into a plain old wolf instead of some monstrous hybrid.
Gavin: We take trips to different safe houses sometimes so I can run wild outside without any worry. It feels better than being cramped up inside at the downtown penthouse, but keeping me inside is better than having me shot by the LSPD because they think I’m some rogue animal from the zoo.
Jack: We also like leaving because he breaks a lot of shit if he’s kept inside. He’s just as clumsy as a wolf as he is when he’s in his human form, and all that shit ends up adding up costs over time.
Jack: Despite all our teasing, he doesn’t carry any canine traits when he’s in his human form, but other dogs are drawn to him like a magnet and follow him around. The week leading up to the full moon he gets really irritable, and then when he finally shifts – how did someone put it? Go full furry? Wolf Gavin loves to howl, no matter where we are.
Gavin: But… I’m not a furry.
Jack: Yes, you are, Gav; you turn into a wolf once a month. Sure, it’s not by choice, but you still make the cut. A circumstantial furry.

Rob Dyke talking about the absurdity (let alone danger and ignorance) of self-diagnosing and people who whine and demand trigger warnings at places like haunted house attractions who get scared and weren’t warned beforehand, bless.
Sucker is the gritty, brooding debut single from a new band from London named The Big Moon. The all female band had me riveted with the song’s dirty guitars and big, rough sound. In a looming sea of pop, R&B, and electronic music, it’s not often I encounter a new alt rock band with a gripping sound, but The Big Moon obviously has that and more. The quartet will release their debut single on Hard Up come June 15th, and they’ve swiftly become one of the latest Brit rock bands to watch on my list.
