FIVE RECORDS THAT TURN NICKY ON:
The Boo Radleys - "What's In The Box"
Crowded House - "Distant Sun"
The Sex Pistols - "Never Mind The Bollocks"
Joy Division - "Love Will Tear Us Apart"
Iggy pop - "Lust For Life"
"When I was doing my finals, I used to wake up every morning to The Charlatans 'The Only One I Know' on my alarm, a definite turn-on. Usually I never think of music and sex together, I'm strange like that. Not much off 'The Holy Bible'. Unless you're into necrophilia."
NICKY ON LOSING HIS VIRGINITY
"I was 18. It was a reasonably pleasurable experience, actually. It was one of those slipped-in-by-accident things when you know it's going to happen and you pretend you don't know. And I ended up marrying her. We went out for a long time, then split up and got back and ended up getting married. So must have made some impression."
NICKY ON GETTING GIRLFRIENDS
"Me, Richey and James were the retards when it came to girls, and we struggled very hard before we got our first girlfriends. Very, very shy. And most people thought we were gay, so they didn't even bother."
NICKY RATING HIS SEXINESS FROM ONE TO FIVE
"Five on a good day, zero on a bad."
