Fresh from launching a verbal attack on Oasis, Bloc Party frontman has made another revelation â€“ he loves taking ecstasy.
The singer says he takes the Class A drug as it gives him a sense of â€œeuphoriaâ€ and makes him appreciate music more.
Okereke â€“ who makes several references to drugs on the bandâ€™s latest album â€˜A Weekend In The Cityâ€™ â€“ also says he is partial to cocaine apart from one glaring side effect.
He said: "Cocaine can be very attractive, very seductive. But for me, it's bad news because that drug can really damage your voice. The drug I do enjoy taking is ecstasy, which gives a real sense of euphoria.
â€œIt makes your senses so much more acute. It makes music sound so powerful. And it makes touch incredibly sensual. You know, every touch is orgasmic.â€
However, in the interview with Uncut Magazine, he admits such behaviour is mainly routed in the past, saying: "These days I don't even bother with pills that often. To be honest, I haven't taken anything for a whole year."
