“American Gothic” by Grant Wood

What’s your favourite gig you have played to date?

What inspires/influences your music the most?

All the good and not so good people we come across out there in the world.

What song do you wish you wrote?

Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand” – sweeping grandeur, high themes, and just think of the film sync dollars!

That’s a easy one – putting on a show!

What can a punter expect from your live show?

Girl singing, guy playing guitar

Tell us about the last song you wrote?

Well, it was for a kids project and involved a frog who could jump a really, really long way.

The collection of the Spanish royal family formed the basis of the Prado Museum collection. If you could develop a collection including any artists past or present, who would be your top three?

Nick Cave’s ephemera, Kurt Vonnegut’s drawings and Dennis Potter’s photos.
