What is your favourite Embrace song?


What was your favourite Embrace gig?

Leeds November 04. Fine wines, Jagermeister, random friendly people, GATNOing and a dedication from Danny, what more could you ask for.

Special mention for Manc Apollo in O5 - for hopping dances to Rolling Stones and Premier Travel lodge/inn/generic place flash drink mobbing through back door type scenario and PeteV and his 10,000 beers.

SBE in April 05. Undoubtably special for lots of reasons not least of all Danny's acoustic Fireworks. Phwoaaaarrrrrrr.

About 6 years ago about advice on lightweight moshing etiquette....Shaz said "wear trainers - not white ones"

What is your favourite Jelly Baby?

No no no, Tooty Fruity's and the purple ones at that.

Who is your favourite Neighbours character?

Since the departure of Dylan and less recently Darren Neighbours is officially rubbish, although that Riley dude has great hair but is unfortunately a very annoying member of one of the most annoying Neighbours families ever.

Most likely to say…

Pass the Rioja garcon!!!

Least likely to say…

I prefer Bert over Ernie

Cricket - good or evil?

Any sport which sees one of it's heroes drunkenly dangling his babies feet over the open top of a London Double Decker is undoubtably evil.

What was the last thing you ate?

A nice bit o Wensleydale.

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

A criminal psychologist and before that I wanted to go to Antartica and do stuff with stuff. But I was utterly abominable at science. Nuff said.

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

I wouldn't want Danny, his hair would undoubtably find it's way into the food at some stage in the whole madcap process and that would be wrong - HAIR INFILTRATED FOOD IS WRONG.

Cats or dogs?

We have Sneeze, the long suffering cat.

Heaven is…

The Family
Top Gear
Sunday Roasts with gooood wine.
Lush Bath Bombs
Dr Who Christmas Specials

Hell is…

Undoubtably greece and its fucking verdant pine forests.

Madness Rating (1 to 10)

1 - but I am a bit of a muppet sometimes.

An interesting fact about myself…

Hum...I like hats. I have lots. I once went a bit of the way up Everest. It's universal knowledge that I am doomed whenever I try to travel anywhere.
