The Enemy Invite Lord Mayor For A Curry!

The Enemy
The Coventry Telegraph has reported this week how The Enemy have turned down the pomp of a civic reception in favour of a poppadom at a local curry house. Below is the full article from the Coventry Telegraph:

CITY indie rock band The Enemy have sent an invitation to the Lord Mayor of Coventry asking him out for a curry.
The chart-topping group fired off an e-mail to Councillor Dave Batten suggesting he joins them for an Indian meal.
The offer came amid calls for a civic reception to be held for the group.

Cllr Batten wants to honour the Holbrooks-based band for putting Coventry on the map with number one album We'll Live and Die in These Towns, the first band from the city to achieve such a feat.
Following a ceremony held by the city council for street dancing group Kombat Breakers, Cllr Batten agreed with fellow councillors that it would be a good idea to do something similar for The Enemy.

Invitations were dispatched but, ironically, at the same time, band members Tom Clarke, Liam Watts and Andy Hopkins demonstrated their more informal tastes by e-mailing the Lord Mayor and suggesting he join them for a curry.
A spokesman for Coventry City Council said: "We sent a formal invitation to The Enemy inviting them to a civic reception.

"At the same time the Lord Mayor received an e-mail from The Enemy offering to take him for a curry!
"We haven't heard back about the reception yet but it would be great if we could arrange both."
The Lord Mayor said: "Hopefully I will get to meet them soon, although they are very busy, which is very good news."

Cllr Tony Skipper, shadow cabinet member for culture, sport and libraries, believes a civic reception for The Enemy, currently at number 18 in the charts with the single You're Not Alone, would be a great idea.
He said: "The lads' achievement certainly deserves civic recognition.
"It will be a good opportunity to thank the families and backstage staff who have supported the lads in achieving success.
