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

I've only heard it a couple of times so I'm not gonna say.

What and when was your first messageboard post?

Summer 2001. I had been reading it for a while but was too scared to actually post anything. I thought I would sound stupid and felt like I was trespassing on the regulars' territory.

Funny thing is, those regulars who frequented the board back then have now mostly disappeared and I don't know whether to still feel like a 'new' fan or whether I have been promoted to an old 'un. Hmm.

Who was the first messageboarder you met?

A few in Sheffield 1st June 2002 I thiiiink... It was Craig, my ex, followed soon by a load more.

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

I was desperate to go to the RAH gig and so I did - but I was throwing up all the way there!

What other music do you like?

Oasis, Ash, the Beatles, Stereophonics, Idlewild, White Stripes, and, erm, Girls Aloud (ssshhh)...

What are your favourite albums?

All of the Embrace ones, all of the Oasis ones, "The Remote Part" by Idlewild, "Word Gets Around" and "Performance and Cocktails" by the 'Phonics, "Revolver" by the Beatles.

What are you currently listening to?

Whatever happens to come up on random on my iPod.

What is your favourite Jelly Baby?

The red ones! I like the red flavour of all sweets best.

Who is your favourite Neighbours character?

Harold Bishop. It's his love for God innit.

Most likely to say…

"Oh well, you win some, you lose some..." Then, if Cov are winning: "Oh my GOD!! We scored!! We'll probably still end up losing though..." (and usually I am right)

Least likely to say…

"I love Villa." (least likely? I will NEVER say that.) Or "I love Leicester".

Cricket - good or evil?

Neither. Just boring - but my parents love it so I've actually been to hundreds of matches (mostly Leicestershire and Warwickshire).

What was the last thing you ate?

Some ready salted crisps.

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

Anything but a teacher... (because my parents are both headteachers) but guess what I NEARLY ended up being? Yep, a teacher.

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

Rik. Cos he's fit.

Cats or dogs?

Cats. I have two - Liquorice and Midnight.

Heaven is…

The Ricoh. I actually want my ashes to be scattered there, okay guys?


Hell is…

Villa Park. Urgh.

Madness Rating (1 to 10)

1. I'm as sane as you can get.

An interesting fact about myself…

Jimmy Hill used to live next door to me. He then sold his house to the Yorath family (Terry etc).
