Interview with... Captain Yarrface of RUMAHOY - Glasgow O2 ABC 14.02.18

CHRIS STONES

 

Chris managed to catch up with eccentric frontman Captain Yarrface from support act Rumahoy. Dressed in full pirate garb and wearing a balaclava – the interview was a shouty affair, made all the more bizarre by the Captain’s nameless wingman (also in balaclava) who only uttered one word!

 

DTF: Thanks for speaking to us Captain. Welcome to Glasgow on Valentine’s Day. Is there love in the air tonight for you?

 

CY: Oh yes, I will be loving many women tonight. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: Any pillaging on the cards?

 

CY: Oh. I went to the pub next door and pillaged 15 pints of beer. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: You’re a big lad, that wouldn’t have affected you too much?

 

CY: Oh yes. I am a big lad. It’s like liquid to me. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: Why the balaclava?

 

CY: I need to keep my identity secret. I have pillaged widely and you would be able to identify me. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: And can you introduce me to your friend?

 

CY: He will talk when I tell him to! I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: What can we expect from Rumahoy tonight?

 

CY: I will abuse the crowd and play pirate metal. Nobody wants to listen to boring music! I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: And what do you expect of your crowd tonight?

 

CY: I expect them to be Scottish and say ‘foood’ (delivered in a beautifully crafted Scots accent). If they don’t I will be disappointed! I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: Your new album was released on Napalm Records on 9th February. Can you describe what our listeners will be hearing? I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

CY: It’s the story of Captain Yarrface! I wanted to call the album ‘The Triumph of Captain Yarrface’ but the record company wouldn’t let me. It’s still about me though. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: And what will we hear tonight?

 

CY: We will play the songs from the album minus one or two. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: You sing the song ‘Pirateship’ in German. It’s a great track.

 

CY: I am fluent in many languages. German is only one of them. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: What adventures does 2018 hold for you?

 

CY: That is a secret! We will visit many ports. If I told you that, you would know our secrets. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: Well we’re looking forward to what will be a fantastic show.

 

CY: Thank you my friend. I am Captain Yarrface. Welcome to the sea!

 

DTF: And thank you to your silent friend (SF)!

 

SF: Ahoy!
