Sex On Fire is a bit of an ungainly one for the band, given they have immature children.
It’s a tricky one, explaining to the kids because you’re warbling ‘Yoouuu your sex is on fire’, or even hear them singing it themselves, but Kings Of Leon have a way around the awkwardness.
Simple – barter a word and job’s a good’un.
‘It’s ‘Socks on Fire’,’ drummer Nathan Followill suggested to Radio X. ‘Uncle Caleb’s hosiery held on fire one night when we was drying them out on the heater.’
Bingo. Problem solved. And we will perpetually be belting out that the shoes has left up in flames.
Frontman Caleb Followill combined yet that Sex On Fire isn’t as cryptic as others: ‘I consider that strain is the slightest of the worries. We have much bigger things to tackle than Sex On Fire.’
Nathan concurred: ‘They won’t listen to Taper Jean Girl. Ever.’
Yeaaah explaining the C-word competence unequivocally be harder than swapping sex for socks.
Last night saw the organisation title the British Summer Time Festival, where they paid reverence to the Pixies.
In a singular moment articulate to the 55,000-strong audience, frontman Caleb said: ‘I also have to say… how crazy it is to be here this year on the theatre with the Pixies.
‘They were one of the biggest influences on this band. Last year we were here and we actually did a cover of a Pixies song. And to be back here and to see it live was really, really amazing.’
