Joe- First single bought?
Jef says: Err... might have been Suede 'Stay Together'. First album was definitely 'Heaven is a place on earth' by Belinda Carlisle
Joe- First Gig?
Jef: Eric Clapton at the Albert Hall. Not many people know I'm a guitarist at heart
Joe- Fave Whispering Bob/Goldrush song?
Jef: Ooh.... 'Don’t bring me down' I think. So simple and so uplifting.
Joe- Fave Record Label (NOT Truck)
Jef: I’m not much of a "Scener" personally. so any answer is gonna be vague....err...Juggernaut!
Joe- Last Record Bought?
I cant really afford to buy music....
err..Placebo's latest album. but didn’t pay for it so that doesn’t really count, last one was probably the Hybrid album, about a year ago! I have a cable modem so I just download everything, don’t tell anyone though. It's immoral.
Joe- Starsailor-Quality or Hype?
Jef: Oooh..... Haven’t heard the album. Did notice that the video to the Alcoholic song is just like an Embrace video.
Joe- Strokes-Quality or Hype?
Jef: First I thought complete hype... but having seen them at Reading I’ve changed my mind. Still some hype; I cant get over excited about a band that isn’t really original in any way. Good tunes though
Joe- NME or Q?
Jef: Neither.... I read Drowned in Sound! Haha!
Joe- Best Oxford Band To Look Out For?
Jef: The Rock Of Travolta. They rock.
Joe- Does NAM exist?? Are You Part Of It?
Jef: I think it does exist. If someone says it does then surely it does? If you can't see the cat is it there?(!) What am I talking about? Turin brakes are NAM. Not Goldrush
Joe- Current Song You Can't Stand
Jef: 'Heaven is a half pipe'. MTV2 plays music which 'subverts the norm' 'hates pop'.... or whatever rubbish they spout... what do u call 'heaven is a halfpipe' if not pop? Crap I guess.
Joe- Band Who've most influenced Goldrush?
Jef: There isn’t a primary influence as such.... The Band, maybe.... but that’s not a definitive answer. Ultravox. thats right.
Joe- Record which changed your life?
jef says: 'Kilimanjaro' by Ed Rush. Converted me from my obsessive 'only real instruments count' phase
Joe- Favourite Member Of Goldrush?
Jef: Huh? That’s an odd question. My one?
Joe- Yeah! Who do you get on with best in the band? Or are you all really close?
Jef: We all pretty much get on as well/badly as each other. Robin gets hit and Crys quite a lot. But he deserves it, we are all mates. Definitely
Joe- Whose going to win the Mercurys??
Jef: Elbow? I dunno I dont follow these things
Joe- What are you looking forward more to- Touring alone or with Elbow?
Jef: With Elbow... for many reasons. Mainly cos we'll have a DVD player in our van. It'll be a much more.... comfortable tour.. and Elbow will draw great crowds for us. Which is nice and I'll get to see them about 18 times for free!
Joe- Coldplay-Great Band or MOR Media Whores?
Jef: Not the first, dunno about the second. I’m not really a fan.
Joe- Travis-Great band or MOR Media Whores?
Jef: Travis? My opinion is improving slowly... but there is a long way to go for me. The new single is nice.
Joe- Best Moment so far in Goldrush?
Jef: Truck 2001 I think. It felt.... validating(?).
Joe- And finally......Favourite Goldrush Fansite?
Jef: I’m not gonna answer that!
Love is Goldrush!! www.loveigoldrush.20m.com
Jef: Oops! i did answer it
Joe- says: Thanks a lot for that Jef.
Jef: No worries.
