An Interview With: Myself

In the spirit of teen magazines past, and perhaps also inspired by generic band interviews, I decided to interview myself. Here are some interesting (ish) facts about me:

Childhood heros:

Melissa Joan Hart. As Clarissa, she was my style inspiration- the jazzy leggings teamed up with denim shorts- that was my look back in the summer of 1994. Sigh.

First single you ever bought:

The Childliners, The Gift of Christmas. I bought it for 49p (reduced, from the bargain bucket in Martins) in January 1996.

All Time Heroes: Debbie and Stevie.

Favourite Film(s): 

Empire Records, hands down. Also, Big and most things John Hughes, i.e. Ferris Bueller, Uncle Buck, Home Alone… Yep.

Favourite artists when you were 10:

Alanis Morissette, Spice Girls (of course), Blur, Suede and so on. An interesting mix. (odd child. )

Fave song to scream and go mental to:


Fave hangouts in London:

Give me a jukebox with Slayer on it and I’m there.

Do you play any instruments?

I play the guitar appallingly. I’m trying to think of a name for one I have recently been handed down.

Teen celeb crush:

Zach Morris. HELLO.

Current celeb crush:

Bryan Ferry, Graham Coxon, Stephen Malkmus. What?

Biggest ‘cringe’ moment:

No comment.

Mantra for life:

‘Be nice, and don’t show your bum’- Geri Hall

Best piece of advice you’ve ever been offered:

‘You can only be yourself” – my very wise mother.

Fave pudding:

Everything. Anything chocolatey, made with a lot of cream and butter. Apple crumble and custard. No boozey cakes though. Yeeshk!

Fave cheese:

Golly, right. Off the top of my head: La Roule, Applewood smoked cheddar, Brie.

Party Trick:

I can’t resist a good headbang, if I’m merry enough and the music is right.
