5 Fast ones with Coasts singer Chris Caines
What is the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done?
This is gross… I once p***ed into a beer bottle and left it on the side when I was 16, at a party. Some guy thought it was his beer, drank it and spat it out everywhere. I still haven’t told him to this day!
Do you have recurring dreams?
Yes — I’ll start running through a field, then I’ll kick off and realise I can fly.
Have you ever had a near-death experience?
I haven’t, but our drummer Ben [Street] did, four years ago. He jumped off a waterfall in South Africa, but didn’t realise there was a rock under the surface. He cracked his head and scalped himself. He broke his neck and back, and was in a pretty bad way for a few months.
If you could slap anyone in the face with a fish, who would it be?
Nigel Farage with a really stinky river trout.
Did you suffer from ‘difficult second album’ syndrome?
We probably felt less pressure. We’ve been given more freedom and we’re doing things on our own terms.
Coasts second album, This Life, is out on August 18.
