Bros’ Matt Goss says he’s ‘still passionate about conkers’ and delivers another great one-liner

The Goss brothers became a viral hit after the broadcast of their recent documentary

Bros’ Matt Goss has said that he’s still “passionate” about conkers in a new interview which sees the singer deliver another classic one-liner.

Goss, along with his brother and bandmate Luke, became viral sensations in late 2018 after the documentary Bros: After The Screaming Stops was broadcast on BBC Four. Amongst other things, the film showed the pair arguing throughout rehearsals as they prepared for a comeback tour of the UK. 

Appearing on today’s This Morning (January 25) the brothers were asked if they locked horns because they are “intense creatives.”

“Any great meal needs spice,” Matt replied. “That’s what we are – we are two very separate ingredients that are essential to what we do as a band.”

The duo was also asked about their takeover of meme culture and their so-called “Bros-isms”.

“I like speaking in analogies and metaphors and similes,” Matt replied. “Sometimes it’s a descriptive way of speaking. I realise that more now and I love the conkers thing. I still feel passionate about conkers and not wearing goggles.”

He was referring to a moment in the documentary in which he asks Luke if they can start a petition “as Bros for this ridiculous thing where you can’t even play conkers, you have to wear goggles.”

“That is the biggest problem,” he added. “You can’t play conkers in England.”

Earlier this month, Luke Goss denied that he had complained he was “sick of being ridiculed” after the documentary was shown on TV. He was quoted by The Times as saying: “There is a contingent who like a freak show. They will always take the piss. But if that’s their contribution to the universe then I pity them. I’m kinda sick of being ridiculed. I focus on the good people out there.”

He took to Twitter after to clarify his feelings: “Contrary to a certain UK newspaper….I’m over the moon with the reaction of the documentary!” he wrote. “Those guys love an angle lol anyway…thank you all for being so vocal and supportive about our #film sending #love as always.”

Meanwhile, Bros have confirmed details of a new London show this summer. They will play at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on July 5.
