Music & Me: Midnight Juggernauts
Friday 30 July 2010
The first record I bought was...
A used dog-eared LP of Cosmic Thing by The B52s.
The first gig I went to was...
A punk gig for a band called "The Fuck Fucks". I was underage so I was just happy that I got in.
My favourite album is...
Mellow Gold by Beck, amongst many others.
But my parents always liked...
Bach and Mozart.
I couldn’t marry someone who liked...
killing endangered animals and turning it into video art.
In the studio I like to wear...
comfortable shoes, comfortable top hat.
I’d love to have on my show...
a cameo from the reformed 3 Amigos, and maybe Kate Bush.
One thing that must change in the music industry is...
allowing travelling bands more leeway when it comes to excess baggage on the airlines.
A great album cover is...
Metallica - Master of Puppets
On my iPod I listen most to...
If I could have written any song it would have been...
Secret Messages by ELO
The worst song I’ve heard is...
the team song for the Collingwood Football Club.
