Your frontman Julian emphasized his heterosexuality by marrying his girlfriend Juliet Joslin in February. Were you invited?
Fab:No, I had to wait outside, they don’t like Brazilians in the “Tavern on Green” (laughs)
Nick:Sure we all were there. Nikolai was the best man and the three of us were there as a backup.
What did you do as a backup?
Nick:Being there and just in case Nikolai fucks up.
Fab:We had all gathered in this small room behind the altar and I felt as if we were about to have a concert. That was really strange.There you can see how deep the Strokes are in us.
So in the church was one side for the bride’s family, one for the broom’s family and in the middle The Strokes?
Albert:Yeah, a bit like in the video “November rain”
Nick:With a big lightshow…
Fab:The guy run out of the wedding cake panicked by the rain..
Nick:The pyrotechnics had a lot to do. When they both said: “I do.” on both sides of the stage started big fireworks. Because it was really a stage, the thing happened in Madison Square Garden.
Albert:Nothing of that is true. The wedding was quite traditional, Juliet had her bridesmaids and all… Fab: We shouldn’t really talk abotu the wedding with Julian, a wedding is something pretty personal, right?
Nick:True! It’s a pity, I was just getting started… But, let’s drop it.
