Mighty Boosh reveal ‘doughnut and reading’ on-tour antics – video

Julian Barratt and co speak at Shockwaves NME Awards

The Mighty Boosh have joked that their on-tour antics usually comprise such rock ‘n’ roll antics as reading books and chatting to confectionary items.

Julian Barratt, Dave ‘Bollo’ Brown, Mike ‘Naboo’ Fielding and Rich ‘Bob Fossil’ Fulcher were speaking to NME.COM in a video interview after picking up the Shockwaves NME Awards prize for Best DVD for The Future Sailors Tour.

The group also created a balloon replacement of Noel Fielding for the interview which you can watch on the right now.


“I talked to a doughnut,” Fulcher said when asked what he got up to on tour. “Lots of books, reading,” Brown added.

Fulcher also revealed the worst thing he had ever done in a hotel room. “We sat down once and I made a crease in one of the sheets,” he declared. “It was crazy!”
