Nick, Greenie, Cherries, Flodd, Wolla, Shaz, Seterah, Warren, Whelan, all the (old-skool) regulars.

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

Introduced myself to Rik as the "Phantom KitKat Flinger of Brixton" whilst moderately drunk at SG#5.
Have you seen my SG#14 video?
Allowed Splinter to convince me that Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris were a good idea.

What other music do you like?

Let me hear it, I'll tell you if I like it.

Dry Kids
See This Through And Leave
Kick Up The Fire, And Let The Flames Break Loose
Up The Bracket
Silent Alarm
Elephant Eyelash

Foals - Holy Fire
The Bronx - The Bronx (1/2/3/4)
Rancid, The Bouncing Souls, Gallows, Every Time I Die, Enter Shikari

What is your favourite Jelly Baby?

The one I found that appeared to have a penis. It may have just been an overgrown Outie bellybutton though.

Who is your favourite Neighbours character?

Bouncer the Dog, Anne, Papa Lazarou, Sky.

Most likely to say…

You're barred!!!

How are you fixed for gigs on [insert date]???

Double G&T, ta!

Get us a pint will you?


Least likely to say…

I support Arsenal.

I like McDonald's.

St Albans... Lovely place, eh???

Cricket - good or evil?

Boring as a decrepid sloth with leprosy. OK if you're playing it, but that requires a level of co-ordination way beyond my meagre capabilities. Not fun to watch though.

Although 1 dayers & 20/20 aren't too bad.

What was the last thing you ate?

Marmite on toast.

And a pint of G&T.

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

A rock star. Like Denver The Last Dinosaur.

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

Why the fuck would they be in the kitchen if I'm the host??? I'd tell them all to get the fuck back to the table. I'm a good enough chef as it is ta!!! Unless it was Mickey making drinks. The man has great taste in wine/ale.

Cats or dogs?

Cats. Dogs either don't like me or they like me too much.

Heaven is…

Music, Boozes & good people.

Hell is…

Where all the good shit is.

Madness Rating (1 to 10)

I'm not mad, I just drink too much. I also once pissed on my then-Business Studies Teacher's Windscreen, Revenge is sweet!

An interesting fact about myself…

I was a roadie for the Ashes video. I work with Mickey's other band, Talk To Angels. And I like Marmite.
