You know Slow Club, right? Bloke and girl from Sheffield, not quite folk, not quite twee, all really rather engaging and joyous in a vaguely piecemeal way. Yes? Well, Yeah, So?, out now on Moshi Moshi, is even better than that, as this fine chap reinforces. Masculine half Charles Taylor gives us a few minutes:
First single bought: Cher - Believe - it was a present for my sister
First album bought: I think it might have been Rated R by Queens Of The Stone Age.
First gig voluntarily attended: Bowling For Soup at the Leadmill, Sheffield
The record that most made you want to get into music: I don't know about getting into music. I can't really put that down to one album. The Shins' first two records played a large part in getting Slow Club off the ground.
The three headliners at a festival you were curating: Phillip Glass conducting Koyaanisqatsi score/Yann Tiersen/Grinderman
A song not enough people know about but everyone should hear: Clank Clank by Saffron Set
A song you'd play to get people dancing: A Postcard To Nina by Jens Lekman
The last great thing you heard: Neil Young at Glastonbury
Your key non-musical influences: Rob Ryan, Guy J Jackson
Your favourite new artist: Viking Moses
