Of all the bands/artists in your cd/record collection, which one do you own the most albums by?
Actually it's hard to tell, but I am determinedly completist about two bands, Oysterband and Horslips.
What was the last song you listened to (voluntarily)?
I am currently listening to "A Star for Bram" by Robyn Hitchcock, which I just downloaded from eMusic this morning.
What's on your record player right now?
Isn't that the same question?
What song would you say sums you up?
You are kidding, aren't you?
What's your favorite local band?
I live in London so there are a multitude of choices.
What was the last show you attended?
Don't think I've been to a gig since Cropredy, which was the last of the festivals I went to this summer. Hence Fairport Convention.
What was the greatest show you've ever been to?
Gosh, these questions are a bit absolutist, aren't they? The Very First Time we saw Kate Rusby was excellent (she was supporting Show of Hands). And the first Show of Hands Albert Hall gig, for that matter. And June Tabor & the Oysterband on the Freedom and Rain tour. And the Big Session gigs I blogged earlier this year, and, oh, gosh, all too difficult.
What's the shittiest band you've ever seen in concert?
I've seen innumerable shitty bands. But the concert that stands head and shoulders above the rest in this regard is King Crimson, on the Vroom tour, at the Royal Albert Hall.
What band do you love musically but hate the members of?
Er, sorry, don't pay any attention to the members of bands normally.
What is the most musically involved you have ever been?
Played instruments badly, sung in folk clubs etc.
What show are you looking forward to?
Oysterband again, Show of Hands again. No other tickets at the moment.
What is your favorite band shirt?
Oysterband Celtic Junkies
What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?
I'd rather spend the day listening to music, to be honest, than hanging out with musicians.
What musician would you like to hump for a day?
Sabbath or solo Ozzy?
Sabbath, but nothing by preference to either.
Commodores or solo Lionel Richie?
What was the greatest decade for music?
Right now seems jolly good to me.
How many music-related videos/dvds do you own?
One! It arrived yesterday! Kate Rusby live at Leeds.
What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
What's the crappiest CD/record/etc you've ever bought?
Introducing the Hard Line According to Terence Trent D'Arby.
Do you prefer vinyl or CDs?
All totalled, how much do you spend on music in a month?
$15 at eMusic, plus typically 5 CDs a month perhaps, some of which are Fopp cheapies. Say £50 in total. Though it's not even through the year; I spend far more in the summer months because I buy lots of stuff at festivals.
