Yannis from Foals admits 'we've never played a gig sobre'

You've watched Foals live: they're electric, all over the place and pretty exhilarating. Well, frontman Yannis has admitted why: they're pissed.

"It's an inhuman amount of alcohol to be drinking," he told ShortList. "At the end of a tour the bus pulls back up in London and you could throw 40 parties and a couple of weddings off it. All the champagne gets smashed pretty quickly but there's lots of bourbon and beer left over. We were thinking about starting a wedding catering business on the side."

Philippakis admitted it's a huge part of the band's identity.: "We've never played a gig fully sober. There's a part of me that'd like to do it sober. I just don't know whether it would be any good. Most nights are mental."

"I missed a flight recently because we were drunk," he continued. "In terms of how we operate, it's not a problem, but booze is imbued in the band because we started out playing house parties. And anyway, I've got the rest of my life to clean up."
