Huey and Fast are both ambidextrous! Huey holds his fork in his left hand and Fast holds his in his right!
The band's favourite sandwich is a Rocky Balboa sandwich, which contains steak, cheese and onion. Eeew.
FLC's 'celebrity' fans (and I use the word celebrity in its loosest manner), include Konnie Huq (the really irritating one off Blue Peter) and Steve Wilson (who was sacked from Live and Kicking earlier this year). I suppose Ian McCulloch, Garbage, and Republica #shivers at the mention# also count.
Mimosa was originally going to be called 'Lounge 'A' Palooza'. Really! Check the sleeve notes to 'I'm not in Love'
In the U.S. (well on CDnow.com at least), FLC's music is classed as DANCE. Nope. I'm not laughing. Not funny. Just a nervous twitch...#smothered laughter#
Motts, as in 'Yeah I got the Motts' in Passive/Aggressive is apparently apple sauce. I always thought FLC had started talking French. Mots rather than Motts. D'oh!
FLC in town? Look out for TransAm Trucking trucks.
