2. What band did you discover in 2017 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
Holy Moly & The Crackers. They're just great.
3. How will you remember 2017? (In terms of music)
Mainly in terms of making a new record in Texas. That's been the central preoccupation of my year, muscially and personally.
4. What can we look forward to from you in 2018?
Said new album being released!
5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2018?
I think Arkells are brewing something new. I'm not that good on knowing what's in the pipeline, truth be told.
6. For most, 2017 will be remembered as a year of political and social conflict. How does that cultural atmosphere influence your own music or artistic life?
I think that the last few yaers have been distinguished, as no others in my life have, by being ones where politics is unavoidable for everyone. That's a new and unpleasant development, but it has certainly influenced my writing. Next album in particular!
