Reading, writing, arithmetic. Music, in many of its forms. Failing football teams and cheese and biscuits.
Prince, AC/DC, Arcade Fire, Animal Collective, Nirvana, These New Puritans, British Sea Power, Neutral Milk Hotel, Neil Young, NWA, Amy Winehouse, dEUS, Radiohead, Arab Strap... some of my favourites, but I'd hate to specify any genres of preference.
I'm not especially interested in hearing your demo. Sorry.
