I do this job because...

Errrr... I don't know

Earliest childhood memory:

Playing football and cricket with my mam and dad. Happy days.

Do you have a criminal record?

I'm not sure if it's been wiped off yet, so I don't know!

First record you bought:

Neon Nights by Black Sabbath (gruesome rock outfit).

Last record you bought:

Albums by the Boo Radleys, Catatonia and the Fugees.

First poster you put on your wall:

Seve Ballesteros (golfer) and Steve Ovett (athlete)

Describe yourself in five words:

Welsh, melancholic, nervous, sickly, sad.

Worst item of clothing you've ever bought:

Loads of golf stuff, which is never nice, is it?

Most embarrassing thing you've done recently:

Pretend to like other bands.

What book are you reading at the moment? A couple actually. What Uncle Sam Reaaly Wants by Noam Chomsky ( a book about the state of US politics) and No Other Way by Richard Felsted (something about the Spanish Civil War).
