I know you listen to Radio4 alot, so you must've had a think about your Desert Island Discs.... What would they be?
I'd love to go on Desert Island Discs. Kirsty Young is bare fit.
1. Kraftwerk - Autobahn.
2. Cardiacs - Duck And Roger The Horse.
3. ELO - Mr Blue Sky
4. Ansell Collins - Stalag 17.
5. Hatfield and the North - Mumps.
7. Trans Am - Futureworld.
8. The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds.
Not enough space to go into detail [Fanbridge only allows you 1000 characters] but these are all tracks i could never tire of hearing. I would probably give you a different eight tomorrow.

I'd accept the complete works of Shakespeare; the boredom would probably become sufficient to make me read some in earnest and try to find out what all the fuss is about. From what I've heard so far he appears at least as overrated as Bob Dylan.

That "using cheap mono speakers" discovery possibly just changed my life. Thank you for that. Would you please share with us a couple more simple-but-profound studio/process revelations you've had?Ott responded on 04/22/2012 Next question
Any thought on the piano? Hasn't showed up in any of your tracks (yet). Seems like an instrument that would be hard to pull off without soundy cheesy or overused... Think you could do it??Ott responded on 04/26/2012
