    1. How did you get into 29?

    The LaFontaines - they supported Twin Atlantic at King Tut's in 2010, i didn't go away from that show and listen to them - but they definitely stuck in my mind. they put on SUCH an incredible show, Kerr is ever the showman. then they were announced to support Twin again in 2011. i did several dates on that tour and the fonts just made it even better. the live experience they offer is incredible, i've always thought they were the kind of band that you NEED to see them to get into them, if i had listened to their music before seeing them i don't think i'd be into them just as much as i am - so thank god i've seen them. i've also met them a few times through different tours now, and they're amazing people too - they're all hilarious. good bunch of guys, incredible energy and a promising band.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?

    Alex Clare - Too Close. that seems a fairly standard and obvious answer to be honest, i only actually got the full album last week, which is so bad of me! i heard too close ages ago, but i didn't pay much attention to it. then one day it just clicked and i listened to it 500-odd times that week and i still love it.

    3. What’s your favourite lyric by 33?

    Adele - so I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no
    I won't ask you, you to just desert me.

    4. What is your favourite album by 46?

    Attack! Attack! - i'm gonna have to say their debut, original but by far their best in my opinion.

    5. How many albums by 13 do you own?

    Fall Out Boy - all of them, including Save Rock & Roll... which isn't out till next week, my bad.

    6. What is your favourite song by 50?

    Christina Aguilera - either Bound To You or Fighter. i can't decide.

    7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad?

    Nickelback - not so much anymore, i used to get distraught every time i heard far away though. genuinely used to kill me.

    8. What is your favourite album by 15?

    9. What is your favourite song by 4?
