The Washouts are that band with two bassists. They would consider a keyboardist, well, if she was on the right wavelength? Just no guitars.

It’s a thing.

But by the time they get their interview with Mona from Velocity Weekly they’re so past that. “I can’t blame the fans for clinging to the gimmick,” says the bassist, “the ones from when we were starting out, you know.”

“And when was that?” Mona asks.

He thinks. “Saturday?”

Mona’s only here because she’s crushing hard on the drummer, but there’s this goth girl clinging to him like a wad of white library paste.
