Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - By Murph Lead singer of The Wom­bats

I would be home in Lau­rel Canyon in Cal­i­for­nia and would be rudely awo­ken by my Amer­i­can bull­dog Daisy lick­ing my leg.

She’s a res­cue dog and a bit weird. She’s ba­si­cally a vam­pire – sleeps all day and is awake all night.

My wife is a great cook so she’d make us break­fast while I see to Daisy and ad­min­is­ter her Prozac.

Next we’d go for a walk around the neigh­bour­hood. Back in the Six­ties it was home to The Doors and Joni Mitchell. When The Bea­t­les’ Mag­i­cal Mys­tery Tour came out, ev­ery­one would open their doors and play it at the same time. I like to think about what it might have been like 50 years ago, with all the drugs and ex­cess.

I’d do a hot yoga class then go home for a glass of wine, food and a film.

We’d match a Mar­vel movie while cook­ing then a nerdy doc­u­men­tary about cult lead­ers while we eat.

My wife loves spicy food – she uses so many chillis, we both sweat as we eat.

What with that and the yoga, I’m very de­hy­drated by the end of my Sun­day.
