On the 2nd of April 2007 Garry Cobain posted a video onto his Youtube account of him arguing with a lady at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, London about God entitled "the GOD WARS - An Argument I Had At Speaker's Corner". It is edited in a humorous way by him with the intro title "COMIC BELIEF presents..."
His first big collaboration with Dougans was on "Stakker Humanoid" which went on to be a chart hit at a time when acid house in particular was becoming very popular. The pair then released their first single as FSOL "Papua New Guinea" which also became a big hit in clubs across Britain and the States, they signed with Virgin records but remained firmly independent artistically, something they have always fought for and achieved, Cobain puts this down to them already having a few hits under their belts (Papua New Guinea in particular) before they signed with the major label.
Cobain has always been the more vocal member of the band and always speaks for them in interviews with Dougans sometimes interjecting on a certain point; Cobain has said that FSOL is a combination of opposites, the roles of masculine and feminine are central to the FSOL ethos and Cobain has said that in the band he represents the melody and softness as opposed to Dougans representing technology, machines and programming; its the marriage of these forces, Cobain says, that makes FSOL work the way it does, especially with the Amorphous Androgynous of the new millennium where progressive rock and psychedelica were embraced. The new incarnation of Amorphous Androgynous is very much Cobains new vehicle for the expression of his energy whilst still releasing their more electronic based music as FSOL.
