are from Morden, at the bottom of London’s Nothern Line. The foursome have specializied in speedy, tightly written underground guitar pop. Their debut single, «Small Town Girl» arrived in 2005, and they did an XFM session late that year. In 2006 they traveled to Sweden to record their debut album «Think Before You Speak», which was released in 2007.
The last time Steve stayed up for 24 hours he listened to the whole of «Soviet Kitsch» (except for the child speaking bit and the crappy punk song), walked from Oxford street to Fulham and then sat in a park until everyone else turned up to master our single. Joel was with him too.
I’ve only recently started listening to his music and this is a beautiful song. It really needs your full attention and I think a beach, where you have nothing else to do, is the perfect place. With a lot of modern music the way the violin is recorded sounds really bad but the violin in this song sounds perfect.
At the moment I’d say Kings of Leon. Either «The Bucket» or «King of the Rodeo» would get me dancing, or probably any Interpol, Young Knives, Mystery Jets, Clor... Too many to list.
The music gets me in a really good mood and the best intro to a song ever is on «Pattern Against User». I was listening to this album today actually. But in relation to running from the police I think you’d need something energetic and this is it.
For obvious reasons. Although we don’t condone people listening to Korn.
I don’t know if I listen to music much when I’m depressed but this would be good. The music is really nice with a really odd range of (probably synthesised) instruments but it works. And then when the woman sings, it’s really nice especially the «we were in love» bit. But I guess if I was depressed I’d probably listen to music that would cheer me up.
My favourite Liars song. I’m sure, turned up loud it would disturb my neighbours. It’s also really good to dance too.
I can’t drive!
We’re all unanimous on Björk. Björk is by far the best female solo artist. Everything she does is brilliant and I like the way she is constantly changing and striving for a bit more that one obvious sound. We all think «Vespertine» as an album is brilliant and I’d say «Pagan Poetry» is my favourite song from it.
I never really eat breakfast, I don’t know. David Bowie is good to listen to in all situations so I might as well put it here. I’d say over breakfast I’d listen to «Oh! You Pretty Things», «Suffragette City» and then when I’ve finished my breakfast I’d put on «Let's Dance» and have a bit of a dance. I think that would be a good way to start the day.
The last time I had sex the first Interpol album was on. «Too Busy Thinking About My Baby» would be a good choice too.
I’m not allowed to paint my flat. If I did, I’d lose the deposit.
I think it’s probably best not to listen to music when jumping out of a plane. I’d probably be really worried about pulling the parachute release cord. So wouldn’t want to be distracted by a good song.
William: Well right now we’ve got our unmastered demos playing in the background.
Just good music to get stoned to.
I don’t really get the tube, only if I’m drunk and there’s no over ground trains. I prefer to cycle places. So on my bike I’d listen to The Long Blondes. Probably «Giddy Stratospheres». That song is the perfect pop song and everyone should own a copy of that 7 inch.
Recently we’ve been listening to this 5-track CD I made. It’s got Clor «Love and Pain», The Knife «Heartbeats», Mystery Jets «Alas Agnus», Patrick Wolf «Wind In The Wires» and The Pipettes «It Hurts To See You Dance So Well» on it. All really great songs that we listen to on repeat in our van.
I don’t listen to a particular song. I listen to Christian O’Connell’s radio show on XFM. That’s the noise I wake up to. His voice.
It’s really jumpy and the instruments play off each other really well. It would get you all energetic which is good for getting work done.
At the moment in London it’s very hot so this would be perfect. This song is so catchy, hopefully I’d play it and their greatness would spread around the lower Morden area of London creating a nice new fan base of mainly chav scum.
