What is your favourite Embrace song?

Over/I Had a Time/Come on & Smile

What was your favourite Embrace gig?

V2004 Staffordshire. For overall guffawness. Just don't tell anyone I went to the 'V' festival.

What is your favourite Embrace Album?

Drawn From Memory/TND.

What is your favourite Embrace B-Side?

Come on & Smile/YOGTSTGB

In what order of greatness (1-10) would you place tracks from Out of Nothing?

None of them are great, except OON.

In what order of greatness (1-10) would you place tracks from This New Day?

I wouldn't.

What and when was your first messageboard post?

I have no idea what I said. It was 2004 sometime, when rumours of a new album [OON] were beginning to surface, and I was all excited and child-like and angst-ridden, what with being 15ish and all.

Who was the first messageboarder you met?

Hels. Who probably doesn't count, as we knew each other in a roundabout way before hand, and is actually responsible for using the board, and henceforth my failings in life. She's great.

What is the most stupid thing you've done at a gig?

Missing OON to go on a piss/bar manouvre.

Heckling at a Thirteen Senses support slot got me in a bit of trouble too, as did making [loud] comments about the state of Ben TCTC's new barnet. I got far too excited that I was standing next to members of the Broken Family Band once too.

What other music do you like?

I LIKE; Junior Boys, Sonic Youth, Lemon Jelly, Dinosaur Jr, Beach Boys, Hidden Cameras, Phoenix, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Broken Family Band, Broken Social Scene, Ghostface, Public Enemy, David Holmes, Aim, DJ Shadow, Mos Def, The Band, The Band, Elliot Smith, Arab Strap, The Ramones, McLusky, Velvet Underground, Scott Walker, oh fuck it there's too many, and none of it will learn you any more about me.

What are your favourite albums?

Last Exit, Balls, Songs of Love and Hate, Goo, Black on Both Sides, McLusky do Dallas, Nation of Millions, oh fuck it there's too many.

What are you currently listening to?

Copious amounts of Absentee, who really are dreamy, but right now, some Sebastian Tellier.

What is your favourite Jelly Baby?

I'm really quite a fan of jelly babies, although I never buy them. As a rule, purpley/black and orange sweets are usually my favourites.

Who is your favourite Neighbours character?

Izzy is hot, and really like Paul Robinson, for representing everything I love about suave Australian over-sexed criminals, whilst Karl Kennedy is rah! and makes me fell warm and in love with life.

Most likely to say…

I say 'dude' far too often for a middle class white dude from suburban Bradford. With A-levels.

Least likely to say…

I use the Embrace message board. ALL THE TIME.

Cricket - good or evil?

Good, although I've never been too good at arguing why.

What was the last thing you ate?

A kit kat, any notion of Nestle killing babies goes out the window when Kit-Kat's are around.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A stumbling but nearly handsome Australian GP a-la Karl Kennedy.

If you were having a dinner party, which member of Embrace would you want to help in the kitchen?

Firtho, I have this weird fantasy in which we get into a fight over the amount of dressing we should put on the salad and I end up laying a bottle of balsamic vinegar into the back of his head repeatedly, whilst rubbing our home grown chillies into his eyes, as he cries for mercy.

Cats or dogs?

I hate all domestic animals.

Heaven is…

I don't really know, I'm still banking on going there when I cease to exist however. If my nihilistic tendencies permit it.

Hell is…

Where I'll go if I keep thinking about that hot nun from Neighbours.

Madness Rating (1 to 10)

I can't do with Madness, or UB40, or any other middling white man takes on ska/reggae.

An interesting fact about myself…

I have a really large head.

And one wishes for a better picture to display, but one cannot afford a digitial camera as one spends all one's money on whores.
