THE GOOD STUFF
What is your favourite genre of music?
I'm crap with musical genres, partly because terms are thrown around recklessly. I'd have to say 'Indie Rock', but only because 'Alternative Rock' is still far too wide to be considered a genre, in my opinion.
Just because a lot of good bands have been called 'Indie'. I don't like stuff like Screamo, Rap or Hip-Hop (with few exceptions, eg Timbaland
), and I don't know too much about Electronica right now to consider it my favourite genre.
Name your favourite bands:
3. The Dandy Warhols
5. Bloc Party
Name your favourite solo artist(s):
Hmm... I like Girl Talk
What is your favourite album?
- Ooh, tough one... I'd probably have to go with Turn on the Bright Lights
. It's only got one bad song on it (Hands Away
), and it's so emotive and fantastic. They'd probably be my favourite band, but I think albums 2 & 3 were poor in comparison to TOtBL.
What is your favourite album cover?
- Sleeping with Ghosts
. It's very literal to the name of the album, but it's just fantastic to look at.
Name your favourite song(s):
- Flesh Mechanic (demo)SugarLike Eating GlassHeavenlyStella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down
Favourite CD you own:
- Turn On the Bright Lights - Interpol
Favourite song on your computer:
- Like Eating Glass - Bloc Party
Favourite song you DON'T have:
- Don't Be Light
- "He tries to impress her, mentally undress her, it takes more to posses her, but in his pocket lies a hole, he's got a thousand talents, charisma by the bagful, aristocratic parents, a rebel with a heart of gold"
- Brian Molko.
- Daniel Kessler.
- Jon Theodore.
Favourite instrumentalist (any instrument not mentioned above): Stevie Wonder. Any instrument I've ever seen him play, he just blows you away.

Do you plan to / have you gone to college for music?
- Nah. If you've got musical talent, it's there at you're disposal, you don't need to be graded on it.
