The Temperance Movement Interview – 18/09/2013 – Oran Mor, Glasgow

I recently caught up with three members of The Temperance Movement in the grand, recently refurbished and rather plush dressing room in Glasgow’s Oran Mor. Guitarist Paul Sayer, Bassist Nick Fyffe, and Vocalist Phil Campbell kindly gave me some of their time before taking to the stage to perform.

About Del Preston

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweet shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me and Keith Moon and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweet shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shop owner and his son, that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business really. But sure enough, I got the M&Ms and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.
