I play adequate. If I had been to play any additional than I play now then it would tip the balance more than,” he told NME’s Andrew Trendell at Worthy Farm.

“For me, a set is a small bit like a film exactly where you get all your scenes in spot. Sooner or later you get them in the correct order as what you want to be as great. From time to time if you play about as well considerably, as considerably as I like it, you just modify the dynamic.”

Speaking of future collaborations, he hinted: “I assume me and Bernard [Sumner, New Order/Joy Division] will possibly do a thing once again in the future, Perhaps I’d like to rope Stephen Morris in at some point. Stephen’s constantly been one particular of my favourite musicians – not just simply because he’s from Manchester, but no one’s ever managed to play like him, prior to or due to the fact. Also, I truly price Gillian as well. So possibly I’ll just join New Order… on bass.”
