1.) WHICH RECORD HAS HAD THE MOST PROFOUND INFLUENCE ON YOU?
Butthole Surfers – Brown Reason To Live. [It] Was the first “punk music” I ever heard and sent me on a lifelong journey to hunt for the most chaotic and interesting music I could.
2.) HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU SPEND A WEEK RECORDING/PLAYING/CREATING?
In my head: 25/8. In my hands: 4, if I’m lucky.
3.) WHICH OF YOUR OWN CREATIONS IS YOUR FAVOURITE?
Body Chaos from my ‘Modern Jester’ 2 x L.P.
4.) WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST REGRET?
Wish I would have asked my grandparents more questions.
5.) WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX?
I’m not sure if I ever do… Watch goofy 70’s teen burnout movies. Skateboard. Or sit in a remote place staring at things and trying to slow things down.
6.) OTHER THAN FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHAT IS YOUR MOST CHERISHED POSSESSION?
7.) TELL ME THREE OF YOUR HEROES/HEROINES?
Donnie from Andy Milligan’s The Weirdo, the lead singer of Caroliner, Mr. Q. Miss Pussycat, Angela Baker, Rock n’ Roll Jackie.

9.) IF YOU DIDN’T HAVE YOUR ART WHAT OCCUPATION DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD BE DOING?
10.) IF THERE IS ONE THING THAT YOU WOULD WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU HAVE NEVER CONVEYED IN AN INTERVIEW BEFORE WHAT WOULD THAT BE?
Just that I’m thankful for all the amazing experiences I’ve had so far.
