FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT LIVING IN BRIGHTON:
I love Brighton summers… the smell of BBQs and boozing on the beach. Actually, Christmas time too. People watching with a glass of mulled wine… then off to Bees Mouth!

FAVOURITE LOCAL VENUE:
Completely depends on the music, there are so many great ones… The Albert, Green Door Store, Blind Tiger.

BEST PRE-GIG DRINKING HOLE:
The Mucky Duck… but I am biased J or you can usually find me in Bees Mouth.

FIRST EVER GIG:
It would probably be something cringe-worthy like PJ and Duncan, although the first tape I ever bought was ‘I should coco’ by Supergrass – that must retain a smidge of dignity!

BEST RECENT GIG:
In a nut shell: The Great Escape

3 TOP BANDS/MUSICIANS:
Crazy difficult to answer and it changes all the time ummmm… Zoot Woman, Damon Albarn, Morrissey… oh and Girls Aloud (obvs)

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO:
A lot of varied stuff: Caribou, Soulwax, Errors, Suede, Kings of Convenience

RECOMMENDED BRIGHTON BANDS:
Nordic Giants, The Maccabees, Physics House Band.
