If he can do that on guitar, what’s he going be like on drums? He’d been playing guitar since he was ten or 11. He was small framed, sinewy with long hair, wore an oversized yellow cagoule and had a really warm smile. OK, I’m obsessed with teeth and hair. Dave was watching everything: always observing, tentative, taking it all in. As the UK tour would go on, Dave would bring humour and stability. He was the most fun. He was filled with a great sense of how ridiculous everything was becoming, a bit like all the footage of Ringo during Beatlemania, refusing to get too carried away and brilliant at dealing with the extraordinary things that were happening to them every day with a great sense of normality and a concise, quick-witted retort.
We worked pretty hard around this period. There’s one weekend, from Friday, 4 October, which stands out, and here is a truncated version for flavour and feel of events, a snapshot of how things were happening for Captain America before we went on tour with Nirvana. Teenage Fanclub are rehearsing next door and come in to see us. They are really supportive and excited by the sound. Gerry the bassist, in particular, is very upbeat. During breaks, Brendan comes in about four times and I play drums while he plays electric guitar.
One particular newspaper interview came a bit later, on Tuesday, 14 January 1992, with Alistair McKay of Scotland on Sunday. I was more interested in his method than what I had to say to him. It was brilliant to watch how he approached the piece. We were in The Griffin bar, he’d taken time to get to know us, spent the day listening to us and he skilfully distilled the whole piece, had a theme, a narrative. We then went for a photo shoot and on to listen to the DAT [Digital Audio Tape] of the second EP.
