Tell us the story behind your name.
Picking band names is hard. Swiss Lips popped in my head when I was driving, then we found out it was a slang term for a vagina. Decision made.
If you had to choose any musician in the world ever to replace you, who would it be?
Nobody likes to be replaced…My ex girlfriend’s new boyfriend!
What is your favourite thing about playing city based festivals?
It’s just like playing a gig in a normal venue, but its lunchtime, and everybody’s already drunk.
Are there any other bands from the line-up flyer who you really want to see at Dot to Dot?
Rae Morris, awesome voice.
What is your fave item to take on tour and why?
This mad guy called Lawson, who sorts us out for sweets and stories.
If you could play any instrument that you can’t already, what would it be?
Cello, Like Arthur Russell. My mum bought me a how to play cello book for my birthday , just need a cello now.
