What is your favourite Embrace song?

Currently IYNBILWA but often Thats all changed forever as it was the first piece of music Niamh ever heard and also Danny played it for Elaine and dedicated it to Niamh at the HMV launch for IYNB. Ahhhh sweet.

What was your favourite Embrace gig?

Astoria first time maybe, Brixton 2 2000 possibly, ICA Wednesday, AYGGP video shoot perhaps...... that is like asking a parent which is your favourite child - unanswerable....

What is your favourite Embrace Album?

Out of nothing has stolen my heart away.. Still love all the others though ...

What is your favourite Embrace B-Side?

Caought In A Rush at the Moment...

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

All 10 - what a wimp out answer - apart from glorious day -11

What and when was your first messageboard post?

Dunno - they hadn't even released an album... I wish I had written the tale Emma did about getting the first album but then I am not Emma and I did not live on an Island ....probably slagged off Flodd or Simon actually...

Who was the first messageboarder you met?

Simon at Maida Vale ah yes that was a great gig too.... he said I will be wearing blue adidas gazelles and then didn't - rotter...

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

Supported Nick as he staggered down the street towards the Brixton Academy.....told Richard his baby is nearly as good looking as mine - but not quite... photographed the messageboard possee

What other music do you like?

Jeff Buckley, Mogwai, Waterboys, Skids, Wolfhounds, McCarthy, Ah-ha (yes really), Deep Forest, Moby, Oasis, Mighty Lemon Drops, Smiths, REM....oh dammit you know the score....

What are your favourite albums?

Scared to Dance(Skids), Three City four, Boy (U2), TGWO , Definitely Maybe, This IS he SEA, A short album about love (is that what the Divine Comedy called it?), The Queen is Dead (SMiths) and of course Grace

What are you currently listening to?

a whirring computer and a tape my brother did for me with Cousteau on one side and loads of great string stuff on the other side (BOURGIE BOURGIE, The Catchers, White and Torch, the Walker Bros) only ruined by the misery of music that is Tindersticks.

What is your favourite Jelly Baby?

Organic vegetarian - do I eat babies?

Who is your favourite Neighbours character?

only soap stars I know are Ricky (from Eastenders, who was next to me at a party and I didn't know why everyone kept coming up and asking him for a jump start) or Ken Barlow as I have just done his official MBE portrait at BuckHouse. Cain Dingle is a friend of mine - but he's in some Northern Soap

Most likely to say…

Hummous and Pitta Bread please or Niamh - give Daddy a cuddle

Least likely to say…

Come On You Gunners...

Cricket - good or evil?

Good to play evil to watch - like jazz music.........

What was the last thing you ate?

a toothpick and ermmm hummous

Cats or dogs?

Cats anyday - they don't need walking

Heaven is…

too long to go into that one

Hell is…

the common grave of mankind..... or a Mariah Carey album launch party

Madness Rating (1 to 10)

Normal - extra normal..... marking yourself high is pretentious.... 'Oh I am such a laugh me' ....... errrrr 1 probably

An interesting fact about myself…

I was Nick Southalls stunt double for the risky railway station shoot on the Batsford Manor gig. And inspired the word eclectic from his quote... I have picture of my daughters afterbirth..... is that legal? I am a textaholic.... I am addicted to textahol...
