Simple Kid

is a flame-haired Irish solo-musician blending scrubby slide guitar, Casio beats and freaky melodies into warped, euphoric 21st century folk music. Critics tagged him «the Irish Beck» for the sake of convenience. Eventhough he resembles much more a young Paul McCartney, Donovan or the pre-Stardust Bowie. Maybe someday he will himself be regarded as a reference.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
Prince - Raspberry Beret

Well I'd probably have a nice fantasy going that I was ahead of my time so I'd play «Raspberry Beret» (which although released in 1985, was recorded originally in 1982).

you take a bubble bath?

I usually listen to my own mixes in the bath for some reason. If I've just mixed something and I can't tell, I leave it for a bit, run a bath and then play it when I'm in there. If it's a good bath, it is a good mix. Them's the rules. I don't make em up, I just follow ‘em.

you relax on a beach?
John Barry - The Midnight Cowboy Soundtrack

One of my favourite albums this. Anything off it would do.

you prepare a candle light dinner?
Jermaine Stewart - We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off

Classic tune though. 

you go to a club?

That's never gonna happen.

you run naked through a cornfield?
Bronski Beat - Smalltown Boy

Not sure why, it just came to me.

you prepare for an important date?
Metallica - Battery
you are in a depressive mood?
Karen Dalton - Something On Your Mind

If it's really bad and I really want to get out of it, I'd play gentle sad country music. Maybe «Something On Your Mind». If it's more anger and I want to indulge it I'd play loud drone stuff and drum solos.

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Eminem - Stan

I had a neighbour once that used to just play «Stan» round and round and round and round on a constant loop. It didn't really matter what song it was, it was just the constant one song marathon that suggested a very disturbed mind. So «anything» would work.... but again and again and again and again and again...

you drive a car late at night?
Nervous Norvus - Transfusion

I can't drive. So «Transfusion» seems about right.

you jog?
Slayer - South Of Heaven

Do i look like I jog? If I did, something really heavy to drown out the sound of my heart going into cardiac arrest.

you are love sick?
Ron Sexsmith - Secret Heart

The most underrated love troubadour around. I saw him in a room of about 100 people and only paid £5. Great for me but criminal really! Genius boy!

you make love?
Metallica - Battery

The opener of «Master Of Puppets». Self-explanatory if you could see my love-making style.

you jump out of a plane with a parachute?
Status Quo - Down Down

I'm kinda literal that way. Say what you see. 

you sit in a plane?
Aphex Twin - Nannou

Anything without lyrics. I like ambient floaty stuff in a plane.

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Lee Hazlewood - Some Velvet Morning

I'd put it on my headphones, pretend it was me that was singing like that, and I'd feel invincible against anything that came my way.

you sit in the subway?
Petula Clark - Don't Sleep In The Subway

It's a reminder to make it home.

you wake up?
Throbbing Gristle - Heathen Earth

If I have a hangover. Just to rub my nose in it a bit.
