  • Q What album would you bring to a desert island with you?
  • A Well it would have to be long, so probably a double album like M83's Hurry up, we're dreaming
  • Q The first concert you ever went to?
  • A Radiohead in the RDS, 1995 I think it was. Massive Attack in support.
  • Q Most single most embarrassing album you ever bought?
  • A It probably happened during my nu-metal phase. Something like Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water by Limp Bizkit. Hardly a classic.
  • Q If you could rob the vocal chord of any singer, who would it be?
  • A Probably Gregory Porter. He's effortless. The bastard. Or, at the other end of the spectrum, Chino Moreno (Deftones).
  • Q What song is your specialty at a karaoke?
  • A Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!
  • Q If you could erase one band from existence, who would it be?
  • A Razorlight
  • Q Out of all the venues in Ireland, where’s your favourite?

  • Q Tell us something about you that people don’t know
