Keyboard player freaked out by bananas

Milo Cordell, one half of highly-tipped electro-tinged noise mongers The Big Pink, has confessed he has a rather odd phobia: fruit.

While his bandmate Robbie Furze is terrified of sharks, Milo admitted: "I hate bananas. Fruit, I don't like any kind of fruit.

"I find it so alien. There's something about when an apple core turns brown or when a banana skin turns black. I just hate things perishing in front of me."

He added: "Maybe it's just a metaphor that I'm extremely scared of death."

The Big Pink talk to the Quietus in depth next week.
