Lulluby by The Cure. The first tune I really really loved. That was so different from all the other songs that were playing on radio or tv.

The anxieties of big data. We managed to strike some kind of balance with a variety of influences and make our own stuff.

When we’re having a blast playing it !
What song by another artist do you wish you had written and why?
Bull In The Heather by Sonic Youth.
What artist(s) has been your biggest influence?
Name a song that makes you happy and why does it have that effect?
The knife “Pass it on”, it’s a song that makes us happy and that makes us dance too !
What is the best new band that you’ve heard recently?
Speedy Oritz. It’s not really a new band but we saw them a few months ago for the first time.
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
Is this desire ? (PJ Harvey)

Our friends from “Birdie Steptoe”. We toured with them in Spain last month and we had a great time !
