FIRST RECORD YOU EVER BOUGHT…
'Boogie Man' by John Lee Hooker
I can't remember ever not wanting to be a musician, so the answer is probably 'me'!
My mate Thom's dad - Steve Atkinson - in a theatre in Melton Mowbray. His album 'Small Boats' just got reissued, check it out!
Hmm, that I can remember, Shirley Manson from Garbage.
Water. Either the intake or outlet of it.
My friend and fellow singer-songwriter Liam Bailey. He would drink the place dry, selflessly ensuring I had no chance of sustaining a hangover.
A really swish folder to keep it all in.
Pay-to-use cash machines. Come on, they're really annoying. I'll start small and work up from there; premium rate phone numbers, then extortionate train fares... Get the niggling annoyances out of the way and world peace surely won't be far off.
That would have to be 'Things We Lost In The Fire' by Low. How perfect would that be?
Whoever it was that decided not to give Deadwood a 4th series!
Who knows? A cry, a burp, maybe even a little wee.
The Sarabande from Bach's 4th Cello Suite in Eb.
A tiny ukelele with a strap my dad made out of one of the braces from my red corduroy dungarees.
Freddie Mercury. I think the fact that he completely owned the olympic closing ceremony via a ten second video clip shows what a loss his death was to British music.
The present moment; like most people I spend most of my time in the past or the future as it is, we need time machines to keep us where we are, not get away from it!
'About To Die' by Dirty Projectors.
I'll get back to you when I've written a hit!
Another couple of arms would be really useful.
