If asked, we would have said that the LostProphets occupy a space in our hearts alongside cockroaches. We surprised to discover Ian Watkins would agree with us. But for different reasons:

"I don't know if it's arrogance or deluded self-belief, but fads and scenes change - and we've survived them all. We're like the cockroaches of rock.

"The benefit of not belonging to any particular scene is that if you're genuinely tied to something you're likely to go down with it."

This belief that cockroaches are indestructable seems to stem from the belief that they'll survive nuclear winters. The LostProphets, to be honest, look like they'd have trouble making it through a chilly autumn.
