Hot Chip member Joe Goddard admits the group do argue "from time to time" and have even punched each other when drunk
Hot Chip argue "from time to time".
The dance group - made up of Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard, Al Doyle, Grovesnor, Owen Clarke, Felix Martin and Sarah Jones - do have issues with each other, but Joe claims they have too much "mutual respect" for it to ever go too far.
He said: "Yeah we do argue from time to time. We've never had anyone throwing plates at each other or anything like that. Maybe a couple of punches have been thrown in very drunken moments but generally it's just the normal stuff that doesn't really have a huge impact on the band.
"There're always decisions to be made and someone's bound to feel differently about something but there's never been a major bust-up and I doubt there ever will be to be honest. We get on, and we don't tour continuously to the point where we hate each other. There's a lot of mutual respect in the band."
Joe also admits he does sometimes find the job "boring" at times, but thinks the good stuff outweighs the bad.
He added to Clashmusic.com: "There are definitely a lot of boring times, like, when you're just hanging around in hotel lobbies, airports and backstage at festivals, but those boring moments are far-outweighed by the pleasure of playing the actual shows."
