Eat, sleep and breathe: Meursault
Neil Pennycook reveals some of the band’s on-the-road eating habits
This article is from 2012.
What time is breakfast?
The five minutes between waking up and getting in the tour van.
Tea or coffee?
Smoking or non-smoking?
Sweet or savoury snacks?
Savoury. Anything peanut flavoured … except peanuts.
What food do you miss when you tour?
Melon. Except when melon is on the rider, in which case a different kind of melon.
Who’s the best cook you know?
That would be Sam, our drummer.
What’s on your rider?
Cheese, fruit, bread … Nesquik (this is a real deal breaker).
Which country/city has the best food?
Zurich, Switzerland. Cabbage and chestnuts, oh yes.
Do you eat out a lot?
On tour? Yeah, it kind of comes with the territory.
Do you drink onstage?
Only Nesquik – strawberry, or no show.
