Of ‘English Tapas’, frontman Jason Williamson explains: ‘Andrew walked into some random pub and saw “English Tapas” scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were its components: ‘Half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie’. It says everything about this fucking place. It’s comedy, it’s make do, it’s ignorant and above all, it’s shit”.
