Any use­ful stage tips? Make sure you’re in tune and make eye con­tact with your au­di­ence. What’s the worst thing ever thrown at you? Glass bot­tles. Never funny, never cool. If you could be in any other band, which one? Most of my favourite bands are ac­tu­ally ex­am­ples of per­fect chem­istry – I wouldn’t ac­tu­ally want to join Fugazi, I’d fuck it up. That said, Larry & His Flask have more fun on stage than any other band I’ve seen, and they’re friends, so that’d be cool I’m sure. hosts Bruce Mol­sky, Casey Driessen and John Doyle.

I have hun­dreds to choose from; this has ba­si­cally been my en­tire life since 2004 (and my first run was 1998). Off the top of my head, I can think of the time when I lit­er­ally had to travel by train, plane and au­to­mo­bile to make it through a snow­storm from Paris to Lon­don for a Christ­mas show. I made it to the venue about five min­utes af­ter I was due to play and ran in the back doors and onto the stage and started with­out catch­ing my breath. Crazy day.
