Music & Me: The Shoes
Friday 11 February 2011
Guillaume from Gallic duo The Shoes takes time out from the band’s January tour to answer a few questions for Music Magazine.
The first record I bought was...
Prince – the Batman soundtrack.
The first gig I went to was...
A Michael Jackson lookalike during summer holidays with my parents. It was brilliant. (laughs)
My favourite album is...
That’s a very hard question to answer, but I’d go with Loaded by Velvet Underground.
But my parents always liked...
My parents have got very good taste.
I couldn’t marry someone who liked...
On stage I like to wear...
Sunglasses, loafers or Chelsea boots.
I’d love to perform with...
Janelle Monae, she's special...
One thing that must change in the music industry is...
The price of the records!
A great album cover is...
Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon, even if it’s not my favourite Floyd album.
On my iPod I listen most to...
If I could have written any song it would have been...
"My way", because it’s the most covered song ever!
The worst song I’ve heard is...
I’m sure it’s one of mine.
The Shoes release their debut album Crack My Bones in March. The second single from the album, "Wastin' Time" (Southern Fried Records) is out on 21 February.
