‘The Mighty Boosh’: ‘We’re more rock ‘n’ roll than most bands’

Plus Noel Fielding reveals Billy Bragg's wild side at Shockwaves NME Awards

’The Mighty Boosh’ have declared they are more rock ‘n’ roll than a lot of bands.

Speaking to NME.COM after winning the Best TV Show category at the Shockwaves NME Awards last night (February 28), Noel Fielding declared his comedy troupe can outdo the people who are supposed to be rock ‘n’ roll.

“We’re going to get drunk. We’re pretty rock ‘n’ roll – we sometimes out rock ‘n’ roll the other bands,” explained Fielding of their party plans. “Some bands are really boring these days. They’re more worried about their hair!”

However the comedian did say he found one rock star who lived up to his expectations at the ceremony.

“We were on Billy Bragg’s table though and he’s pretty wild,” declared Fielding. “As soon as I got to the table he punched me to a corner and covered me in sick. Not his own, he’d been carrying someone else’s around in a bag.”
