When playing live do you engage in much conversation with the audience?

No, not really.

On the few occasions I have tried engaging in a little banter I've ended up with a roomful of people staring blankly back at me so I keep it to a minimum.

I don't know if it's my accent, my obscure cultural references or just my appalling mic technique but my attempts at humour tend to fall on stony ground and there's no way I'm standing there with my arms up shouting "Make some noise, motherfuckers! Yeeeaahh!"

Because it's just not me and because it sounds stupid in a Surrey accent.

And because I'm ostensibly there to convey 'that which eludes verbal description' via the medium of vibrating air.
