James Skelly says 'it's what you do it for'
Arctic Monkeys‘ Alex Turner has often name-checked the Wirral group as one of his favourite bands in interviews, and they invited the Scouse group to support them at the Arctic Monkeys’ Old Trafford Cricket Ground gigs last summer.
Speaking to BBC 6Music, The Coral‘s frontman James Skelly explained: “They’re a good group but if someone says that and likes you, then it’s good. It’s what you do it for.”
The Coral performed an acoustic set at London’s Royal Opera House last night, performing a handful of new songs – they were also joined by Lightning Seeds‘ Ian Broudie, who has produced the band in the past.
