You guessed it… my Pogues shirts. I’ve got a Bob Dylan one that I really like as well.

10. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?
Shane MacGowan or Neil Young. Or Bowie.

17. What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
Nil By Mouth perhaps. By Eric Clapton I believe.

18. What was your last musical "phase" before you wizened up?
I’m still going. I just add new phases to the existing ones. I don’t give them up. Though I did used to listen to lots of dodgy Spandex metal in my youth, ouch.

I love ‘Honey’ by Bobby Goldsboro!!!

    Oh yes. Bowie's the man. I saw him live at Glastonbury Festival in 2000 (or was it 1999?) and it was almost a religious experience for me! He was ace as well.
