Q – Do you know Paddy McAloon/Prefab Sprout? I’m very curious as to what you think of them. Also, what else are you listening to these days?
– Jay

A – Paddy is one of the few people I have met in music who I admire and also LIKE.. I havn’t seen him for ages, the last time, I think, was at a Thai restaurant in Soho, London. He got a chilli stuck in his throat and made a very amusing comedy routine in his agony.. ouch.. it was hard work not to laugh, maybe I upset him, hope not.
Bob Hund from Sweden are the only rock music I’d rave about these days, but what do I know? People think I’m joking when I say that I prefer silence..
