01. How did you get started in music?

Just by hearing music on the radio and TV, the transmissions must have affected me in some way and connected!

02. Where did your direction come from?

Mainly 1960s and 1970s music, the feeling you get from hearing music for the first time it makes you feel strange slightly wired.

03. Who were your major influences and inspirations and who do you despise?

The Small Faces, The Beatles, Otis Reading, Reggae, The Creation, The Sex Pistols = influences. I don’t really despise any groups more the reason there making music and the people behind them, I just tune them out.

04. What inspires you to make your current type of songs?

Certain things that make me glad I have something to protest about its a good thing to subvert challenge learn excite… the way banks and financial institutes are trying to make you believe money is something else I hate their adverts, thats my main point of annoyance this week.

05. What can someone who has never seen you live before expect from your live shows then & possibly even now?

I think the audience and musician relationship is a thing that needs to be repaired, its all got too corporate and distant, I can’t stand festivals, no subversion anymore, I want to excite at gigs, I can’t stand audience in-difference, I want people to remember gigs as special places in their hearts.

06. How do you begin your songs? What types of themes and subjects do you deal with?

I will compile musical ideas things I haven’t tried before, chord progressions rhythms and melodys act, look for themes and words that are new territory yet keeping in mind continuity then work really hard at it.

07. How did your music evolved since you first began playing?

Well its pretty much the same platform yet more sophisticated not in a poncey way I mean in a textured way, I think youre always chasing that mantle.

08. What has been your biggest challenge? Were you been able to overcome this? If so, how?

Musically? I set the challenge every time I compose otherwise theres no point, always try and get to the peak of where you’re at.

09. Do you play covers? If you could pick any song, which would you like to cover most and why?

Personally yes, I play other songs all the time thats how its passed on and awakened then it comes out as you hopefully, I havent really thought about covers being recorded though.

10. Where did you envisage being in five years time?

I’ll always be into my culture, my art.

11. Who would you most like to record with?

Well probably the people that have done it all and whose influences I’ve absorbed I’d just like to be in their presence, you know, I guess calling them legends is rock star cliche bullshit so I’d avoid that description.

12. What should we be expecting from you in the near future?

What I always try, my very best.
