"I started playing music — the drums, first up — to avoid being left out at school."

Answered by: Paul Andrews

When did you start making music and why? I started playing music — the drums, first up — to avoid being left out at school and because they seemed to be the easiest to play. Wrong!

Sum up your musical sound in four words? Neil Finn meets Wilco.

If you could support any band in the world — past or present — who would it be? We'd probably get booed off stage and pelted with bottles, but supporting Blondie in their heyday at CBGB would have been incredible.

If you could only listen to one album forevermore, what would it be and why? George Harrison's All Things Must Pass — brilliant songs by my favourite-ever songwriter. Because it's a triple album, there's more of it to love in the years ahead.

Greatest rock'n'roll moment of your career to date? Supporting Brian Wilson at Sydney's Enmore Theatre with my previous band, Lazy Susan.

Why should people come and see your band? I liken our approach to the British '70s pub scene — Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, etc; songs without guile or artifice.

When and where for your next gig? VIC: 16 Oct, Yarra Hotel supporting Central Rain (EP launch).

QLD: 6 Nov, Junk Bar; 7 Nov, The Milk Factory.
