Anonymous asked: Favorite ska band?

I have many favorites but Im going to answer with what has been the most timeless. Desmond Dekker and The Slackers are still absolutely incredible after all these years. Both are very soulful and have aged like fine cheese/and or wine

Anonymous asked: What is your favourite genre of music?

thats like asking your favorite kind of food or something! There is a special something for every kind of mood. I like abrasive fast when doing mailorder things, Bossa Nova/ Movie Soundtracks when chillin’, and any yo la tengo/beach boys record while driving. 

Anonymous asked: what's the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you on the road?

I have played some shows where my brain just hasn’t functioned properly that have left me feeling pretty embarrassed. I have peed myself while playing a couple times but that was out of necessity I suppose? 

This was the very first cd I was given as a four year old. As someone who grew up on Indiana Jones and Star Wars, it was my favorite thing ever. My parents took me to see John Williams and the BPO at the Hollywood Bowl when I was five and I accidentally fell asleep. I woke up during the E.T. Theme and it was very magical. Im just now revisiting this as an adult and it’s just as jaw dropping as when I first heard it. John Williams ily
