The first record I bought was?

It was a happy hardcore record called Six Days on The Run, I was scared to go into the record shop so got my tough mate to buy it for me.

The first gig I went to was..

The earliest gig I can remember was Nirvana, it was before Nevermind and I went with my dad who told me they would be good. He was right.

My favourite album is...

Usually which ever one I listened to last, currently ‘Second Chants’ by Sore Eros

But my parents always liked...

To put records on very early in the morning, it’s a good way to be woken.

I couldn’t marry someone who liked...

Getting their husband into fights or that liked Kasabian.

In the studio I like to wear...

A look of disapproval and a cardigan.

I’d love to have on my show...

El Houssine El Baz, but can’t afford his flight from Morocco

One thing that must change in the music industry is...

Putting all the same bands on at the summer festivals, it’s immeasurably dull.

A great album cover is...

Nina Nastasia’s ‘On Leaving’, there are Liver birds sitting in the trees.

On my iPod I listen most to...

Podcasts as I can never choose an album, Start The Week with Andrew Marr is a favorite, it pretty punk rock actually.

If I could have written any song it would have been...

Anything out of the U2 or Coldplay factory but only for the Royalties

The worst song I’ve heard is...

‘Fairground’ by Simply Red, it induces instant vomiting and diarrhea. I think Hucknall found a way of weaponizing a record.
