Hello and welcome to 'Catch Up With The Covas', our new blog, where you can read all about what's going on with us!
For our first entry, we wanted to start off with something special. So, as many of you may have seen, an incident occurred at our gig in Derby alongside No Hot Ashes which stunned the world. A lot of questions were asked, many of which we didn’t have the answers to, but now, we do.
Meet Ross, a home-grown 'Darbados' legend, who claims to be the one who ate the moth at our gig. We asked the questions that were on your minds and he didn’t disappoint.
Hey Ross, welcome to Cova-Question time, please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm Possibly one of the most awkward people you’ll ever meet. I have been described as moronic, weird and a knob head.
A few people are calling you ‘the moth man’ are the rumours true?
Like Muhamed Ali, I float like a butterfly but sting like a moth
What was going through your mind before you ate the moth which ultimately compelled you to consume it?
Its wing was damaged, I was putting it out of its misery, right?
Some would call that a heroic thing you did, do you have any remorse at all?
Nah, I was doing good because it was in pain. If I was hurting, sure I’d love to get eaten
Wouldn’t we all. Anyway, we digress. How would you describe the taste & could you compare it to anything?
Tasted somewhere between banana peel and dead grass. Not exactly the best flavour combination. Its texture was like eating old cardboard. All in all, I would not recommend.
Ross, Is this sort of thing something you would consider doing again?
I’ve already ticked it off as an experience I didn’t enjoy, so no. But this newfound fame as moth man, sure I’d love to be the new Spider-man.
How would you describe your feelings post moth-meal?
I can feel the withdrawals already, that buzz you get when you eat your first moth is incredible, a sudden rush of luxuriant happiness
One last thing from us, how tall is your dad?
I mean he’s a similar height to me, maybe a bit taller so I don’t know, I guess like 5’11”. His dad though is -6’0”. He's waaaaay dead
Thank you so much for speaking with us Ross and we wish you all the best with your future endeavours, it’s been real man!
