Answered by: Rob Snarski

When did you start making music and why? Around 1983 when I first heard a New York band called Television, wondered which planet they came from and then tried to work out how to get there.

Sum up your musical sound in four words? Salty blue corn chips.

If you could support any band in the world — past or present — who would it be? Currently enjoying Elbow. Wouldn't mind a trip to Manchester, then I could pop down to Sheffield and see Richard Hawley.

If you could only listen to one album forevermore, what would it be and why? I'd be happy with John Cage's 4'33". It sounds completely different every time I've listened to it.

Greatest rock'n'roll moment of your career to date? Hmm. Toss up between supporting Johnny Cash in NYC and opening for Leonard Cohen in the Yarra Valley, singing with The Triffids in London, Belgium and Athens was extraordinary, supporting Nico once and John Cale twice. I'm boasting now.

Why should people come and see your band? So they can be immersed in a velvet fog, lose all sense of time, place and self.  

When and where for your next gig? Playing The Spotted Mallard on 16 Oct.
