Meet the Contributors: Mat Mannion

Helloes!

Name: Mat Mannion
Number one in UK when I was born: George Michael – Careless Whisper
First album bought: East 17 – SAD: The Best Of. Bad. It's SAD for a reason…
First gig attended: Ozzfest 2002. Woop woop woop
Favourite album: Hmm… At the moment, Hot Chip – The Warning. For all time, Radiohead – Kid A
Favourite song: Radiohead – Paranoid Android
Favourite gig: Bloc Party at the NME awards last year as pretty ace
Favourite band: Radiohead
Favourite genre: Indietronica/Pop Rock
The band you like but are embarassed about/feel is a little out of place in your collection: Evanescence is probably the most out of place.
Number of CDs bought since 1st January 2006: Around 45. No wonder I'm skint…
What musical event would you most like to see happen: That time where the Arctic Monkeys told David Bowie to move out of the way, except David Bowie would turn into Jareth from Labyrinth and kick their asses with some crazy crystal thing
Musical hero: David Bowie. Legend.
Music's biggest enemy/ies in my opinion are: 13 year old girls. Stop it! Stop it!

And there we go. That wasn't so bad, was it?

    "You remind me of the babe
    What babe? the babe with the power
    What power? power of voodoo
    Who do? you do
    Do what? remind me of the babe

    I thought I'd post this in a vague attempt to annoy ;–)

    This is what a signed copy of Joshua Radin's We Were Here looks like:

    This is what a picture of him playing live in Manhattan looks like, one day before the recording of Live At Reg's Coffee House, as seen above:

    My evil work here is done :–D
