The Shortwave Set

is a musical kaleidoscope that produces instantly hummable tunes. The idiosyncratic electronica is enhanced by ukuleles, cithars and far eastern percussion. Their second album was produced by self-proclaimed admirer Dangermouse and features John Cale on viola and string arrangements by Van Dyke Parks.

a song that reminds you of school
Madonna - Borderline

There was this girl who used to bust all the moves from the video in the playground. She had the same hair too, and as I remember had started to «develop» a bit earlier than the other girls too. We all certainly used to stop kicking the tennis ball around when she started jumping up and down.

best Beatles song
The Beatles - Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Changes daily.

best concert you ever attended
The Stone Roses

At Alexandra Palace in 1989. I woz proper pillin', mate.

a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed
Dirty Pretty Things - Deadwood

Anything by Razorlight, Dirty Pretty Things, Athlete or Keane.

record you were looking for the longest
The Beta Band - Champion Versions EP

I was hunting for «Champion Versions», the first Beta Band EP for ages, as it was really difficult to find when it came out. I ended up finding it in the Notting Hill tape and record exchange.

a record you fell in love to
Madonna - Borderline
first record you remember
Andrew Gold - Lonely Boy

Strangely I remember being fascinated by the lyrics. Odd really, given I couldnt read, write or barely speak at the time.

the song to be played at your funeral
Elton John - Candle In The Wind

The 1997 «Diana»-version, naturally.

a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life

I like to think this is a song that hasn't been released yet.

your ultimate heartbreak song
Razorlight - In The Morning

A little piece of me dies every time it comes on the radio.

your liberation anthem
Beastie Boys - Fight For Your Right
perfect anthem for London
The Spice Girls - Wannabe
your party anthem
ABBA - Dancing Queen

It is probably the most euphoric 4 minutes of music ever committed to tape I reckon. After a couple of lagers I do find myself strangely compelled to waggle me toes a bit. Not pretty.

first record you bought
Sex Pistols - God Save The Queen

Probably something by the Smurfs, sorry, scrap that... I meant to say, «God Save The Queen». Yeah, that’s better.
