Music & Me: Dave i.d.
Monday 10 January 2011
Genre-mashing post punk meets ambient artist Dave i.d. takes time out from recording his debut album to talk to Music Magazine.
The first record I bought was...
"Jump" by Kris Kross - I was seven.
The first gig I went to was...
I don't have a first gig memory, I don't really like watching live music.
My favourite album is...
"Drum’s Not Dead" by Liars
But my parents always liked...
Lovers rock and rare groove
I couldn’t marry someone who liked...
In the studio I like to wear...
Whatever i've woken up in, my studio is where i live.
I’d love to have on my show...
One thing that must change in the music industry is...
Stop things being so disposable, let it breathe.
A great album cover is...
Something that draws you in before you have even heard the music and something that never looks out of place.
On my iPod I listen most to...
Mainly anything from Xiu Xiu pre 2008, Coil, Robert Wyatt, Bela Bartok
If I could have written any song it would have been...
"The Dreaming" by Kate Bush, it has a didgeridoo on the track, what more can I say?
The worst song I’ve heard is...
There are loads but I won’t be that cruel.
Dave i.d’s new EP ‘Gangs’ will be released on 31 January on !K7 Records
