Sweetsweetmusic...making people melt unawares...writing avidly...going to gigs...having people attempt to teach me how to play guitar...taking photographs...working at an art-house cinema for a living...singing and writing music...falling in love..travelling...watching the stars/sea/city at night...holding hands with friends..dancing crazily with the people I adore...going to gigs and dj'ing badly... listening to beautiful and deeply personal music. Finding the perfect soundtrack for my life.
Most things really...apart from 15 year old Nu Metal sort-of-thing (Surely shouting "Chocolate Starfish!!!" at the beginning of a song is one of the most vile things ever?) At the moment, I have to admit I am totally in love with Bright Eyes, along with your typical post-rock gubbins a la Jim O'Rourke, LaBradford, Broadcast, Life Without Buildings, Sigur Ros, Godspeedyoublackemperor!, Autreche... Mogwai are the band who do the most to grab me and shake me, filling my soul and body with brilliant white light. Yet, bless my wee, twee cotton socks, I'm a Indie Lass at heart...I adore Belle and Sebastian, The Pastels, Felt, The Orchids, The Clientele...that and nice retro Sixties stuff...I love the Make-Up (Michelle Mae is my style icon!), The Aislers Set, The Dolly Mixtures, Birdie... If you wish to know more, talk to your local Drowned in sound rep who knows me/loves me/lets me sit on their lap...
Watching the city lights with the blue-eyed country boy who climbs trees and the girl who shines through the grime of the city... "Because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..."
