Depending upon my activities, I sleep between five and ten hours every night. I sleep in an extra-wide single bed, and I use only one heavy down comforter over me, summer or winter. I have never been able to wear pajamas or creepy nightgowns; they disturb my sleep. Marilyn Monroe

I know I've got a degree. Why does that mean I have to spend my life with intellectuals? I've got a lifesaving certificate but I don't spend my evenings diving for a rubber brick with my pyjamas on. Victoria Wood

The band perform songs from their two albums, Some Were meant For Sea, and the 2014 NZ Music Award winning Best Alternative Album, Brightly Painted One.
