Woahnows. For anyone unfamiliar with Woahnows where would be a good place for them to start?
Well there's not a whole lot to chose from and you could get through everything we've ever released in about half an hour, but if you're really short on time try something like 'Painfully Safe' as it does a little but of everything. No chorus though!
You've released two incredible EPs so far, as you continuing down that road or are their plans for a full length and how long are we going to have to wait for that?
Ah shucks, there is a full length in the works, probably be out nice an early next year.
You guys are pretty active and seem to be playing all over the place, a lot of the time. It's always hard to balance touring and a job, what do you guys do?
It's not easy, we toured a bunch at the start of the year so had to chill out for a while, just doing weekenders and festivals in order to keep roofs over our heads. We'd love to tour more but life can just get in the way. I teach music at a youth club, Wherly builds playground percussion and Dan has jut closed his venue the White Rabbit after nearly 10 years so he's somewhere in between starting a new one and becoming a landscape gardener.
What other tours have you got in the works?
A few short ones with some good friends to be announced for later in the year, we'll probably hang on until the record's out before we go out long enough to get properly weird again though.
You're playing alongside fellow Beach Community pals Gnarwolves and Apologies, I have none at ManchFESTer. How did the Beach Community relationship come about?
Dunno what you're on about Kieran you crazy bastard, we're on BSM. I can safely say Lee from Beach Community is a lovely guy though. I guess our relationship came from hanging out with him watching Wherly take over the kids circus area at festivals.
Long live the three piece. Who's your favourite three piece of all time?
Wherly - Blink 182
Dan - Lemonheads
Tim - Hop Along

You're out on the road with Masked Intruder and Throwing Stuff with a stop at ManchFESTer on Saturday. What are your feelings about this completely mixed bag of music and returning to play another ManchFESTer?
How did the Red Scare relationship come about?
How did the Specialist Subject Relationship come about?
If Andew (SSR) and Toby (RSI) had to fight each other to the death - who'd win?
What are some things you've learned from touring in the past year that you'd never known before? What have you picked up off supporting bands that have been playing longer than I (the interviewer) have been able to run?
2. Brendan Kelly – Drive your own road. Find the weird bars and hide away all afternoon, be tight, be wet, be bald.
3. Roy Berry – Everything is worth something. Pay close attention to the little things. Be a soul detective.
4. Jimmy Islip – Everywhere has a backdoor. Always know at least one good joke for the crowd and and fifty bad ones for the drive.
5. Toby Jeg – Records cost money. Watch out for bullies. Always stand for what you think is right in the moment, you can say sorry later. Be generous.
6. Chris McCaughan – Stand up straight, appreciate light, be patient, be mindful, slow down.
7. Jeff Funburg – Stand for something. Twerking is as high an art form as opera or sculpture. Be a friend to the road and the road will be a friend to you.
8. Frank Turner – Go big with a pretty girl on your arm and the world will trip over its lips to suck your dick off.
9. Sam, Barman at Huddle’s in Newport, Kentucky – A honeymoon ain’t always a holiday.
10. Tim Barry – Never do anything just because. Know your mission and always give everything you have to give.
11. Neil Hennessey – Tinned peaches and cottage cheese can cure anything. The night is never over.
A lot of acoustic folk have been doing StageIt shows recently (Chuck/Tim) [doing live shows over the Internet via webcam] - How do you feel about this medium of performance and would you ever consider doing it, if the demand was there?
Finally Sam, what will it take for you to join Throwing Stuff permanently?
