That’s the link to the full text but the Um bit is:
Who’s in your band?

Describe your music.
Still can’t do this question. Kinda structureless miniatures of gnostic electronic rock married with metaphysical protest [...]

That Ipswich gig was good in the end. Not masses of people and Simon had to pay me in microphones but we all had a laugh. A lady called Crumpet took some photos:
