The Grates FL Forum chat, thisFriday!

Ever wanted to discover the technique behind Patience Hodgsons’ stage diving skills, or find out how John Patterson carefully selects his on-stage outfits every night – well, FasterLouder is giving you the chance to ask all those burning questions and more when The Grates log on to our forums this Friday for an exclusive (and candid) chat with their fans.

Before hitting the road on their Summer’s Breath tour this October Patience and John are going to brave the murky depths of the FL forums to discuss MAB’s latest review and Spicy McHaggis’ pants. They’ll also be answering questions about all things Grates, so make sure you are ready for the first ever FL Forum interview this Friday 23rd September at 1pm.

Be there, or be dreamvsscream (whatever happened to that guy anyway?)

This is such a great idea. Can't wait!

I think we need to ask Patience if she likes your pants!

Is there anything we're not allowed to ask?

I want to know the real story behind their drummer leaving. Also, what's the protocol when the thread devolves into a screaming match between two forum members?

multiple questions about pants!

To ensure there isn't too much crazy, the mighty moderators will be keeping an eye on things (Just like that bouncer who lurks around Pony at 5am looking for punters slumped against walls)

Can I ask Patience if she's free on Friday night and wants to go out?

oldgregg

Their drummer left to go to cooking school?

Lucan

But now she's in the Finn's Pajama Club. Contradicts her losing interest in making and touring music reasoning for quitting The Grates.

Is it off limits to talk about her port wine stain birthmark?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 21st Sep, 2011

I'm sure she's talked about it before.

Sure they can, but that takes away all the fun of gossip and conspiracy theorising.

"hey err Patience.. So you've got a birthmark?"
"Yeah"
"err how long you had it?"
"Umm pretty much since birth"

I'll just ban everyone else on Friday afternoon and tell Patience that it's normally very quiet at that time of the day.

I don't have access to facebook at work but I think you should tell whichever ones you have on fb (Kassie, Lauren, Mel?) that this is happening so they can at least watch for nostalgia's sake.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 21st Sep, 2011

I don't know Mel, but I have Kass and Lauren.

It is the only thing I even care to ask, how far does it reach? Is Braveheart in danger of being put off his game when he takes the tongue express downtown?

batdan

batdan said on the 21st Sep, 2011

Not sure if I have the Patience to hang here on Friday. If she doesn't make BDO and Soundwave predictions she can GTFO.

mooney88

Whats it like being the worlds premier Yeah Yeah Yeah's cover band?

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 21st Sep, 2011



i'll help her cover it up.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 21st Sep, 2011



Even you don't have enough perri perri sauce to cover the whole thing.

I should probably change my avatar before Friday then. I don't want her thinking I'm some kind of creep when I ask her where she lives.

Brian, Chico and myself would like to know if they'd be interested in buying a horse.

Quicky

Quicky said on the 21st Sep, 2011

The only question I want to ask is why the Grates don't play all ages headlining shows in Sydney. Also if Patience would go on a date with me.

Jose Cuervo

Jose Cuervo said on the 21st Sep, 2011

Actually i would like to know if Patience lives by the rule "up the bum, no babies"

Demosthenes

Demosthenes said on the 21st Sep, 2011

This Q&A is gonna be ALL CLASS.

I can tell.

As long as you're polite. Please refer to him as Mr Guitar Dude.

Piko

Piko said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

So they don't swallow the meats then BH?

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

No Piko.

Vegos and vegans will only touch the meats.

I sometimes put more sultanas in my cereal even though the cereal already has sultanas so my question to Patience would be do you really want to hurt me?

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

Do you think Patience can fit her whole fist in her mouth?

Demosthenes

Demosthenes said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

Hoping we get a cameo from Panda Dan as well.

chico21

chico21 said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

Demosthenes

Demosthenes said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

Thylacineman? That should be some sort of Marvel Comics superhero, I reckon. Wonder what the superpower would be though...

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 22nd Sep, 2011



He throws thylacines with deadly accuracy.

Demosthenes

Demosthenes said on the 22nd Sep, 2011



Problem is he runs out of ammo very quickly.

I want to know if she has ever had a drunk bogan try to pick her up by singing Patience by Guns N' Roses.

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 22nd Sep, 2011



That is actually a very good/relevant question tbh.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

I'm going to ask her is science is really golden. Or in fact any colour whatsoever.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 22nd Sep, 2011

I'm going to ask if she uses the correct styrofoam protection around her bed when using it as a trampoline.

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 23rd Sep, 2011



by styrofoam do you mean Gregg?
