Mr. Ott where do I start. You are a huge influence in my life, one of the best days of my life was when I discovered your music. I saw you at bang on NYC on Halloween, actually met you before you went on. Security was giving you a hard time getting through, when you finally got through my friend and me walked up and said "ott, been waiting a long time to see you" your response was nothing short of amazing "well I hope it aint shit then" from that moment on I knew you were someone to look up too with your humbleness that is still one of my favorite nights ever and you absolutely destroyed that warehouse. Can't wait for your new album. I guess I'll ask you a question now, who do you listen too. Who's inspired you to make the music that you do?
Today I listened to Queen, Sparks, Linton Kwesi Johnson, RATM, Genesis, Trans Am, Boards of Canada, Taylor Swift, The Barry Gray Orchestra, Pye Corner Audio, Little Boots, Once And Future Band, Stereolab, Depeche Mode, Isley Brothers, Africa Bambaata and The North Sea Radio Orchestra.
My earliest musical hero was Gary Glitter, although I certainly don't want to be in his gang anymore.
