THE DOVE INTERVIEW

DOVE.

The first band we met were Dove. We were new at this interviewing thing,
 and when we turned on the recorder, the riots started!

GRAHAM: Testing, testing 1,2,3. Testing Testing, 1,2,..8!

US: WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR NAME?

G: 	Well, the band used to be called Dubh, DUBH, because it is Irish
     for Black, and we1re Irish, and we1re black, but we had to change it
    because no-one could spell it outside of Ireland.
LORNA: 	They were calling us dub...huh instead of Dove. Its still the 
     same word, but a different spelling.
DONALD:	 exactly.
L: 	Even though Doves are white...
D:	 It1s just to confuse people!!
(laughter all around)

US: WHAT ARE THE GROUPS AMBITIONS FOR THE FUTURE?

D: 	Just to make it as big as possible, to take it way out there...
