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, DŠUŠBŠH, 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.
