5.5 Questions With Bus Stop Dreams Lasse Thomasson
Bus Stop Dreams Lasse Thomasson, an old friend of TJWS, stopped by Monday to visit and catch up with the program. While hanging out with us, Lasse asked if we’d like to hear their new single, You Can Put Your Faith In Me. Of course, we played the track and lassoed Lasse into 5.5 Questions.
What’s the first song you ever remember hearing?
OK, think it was The Beatle’s Back In The USSR. I’ll remember the landing plane and nothing else. It was so cool or whatever a five year old would say. Really discovered them ten years later.
Tell us about the first time you heard yourself on radio.
Can’t really remember the actual first time. Hearing yourself on the radio is very strange though. It’s sort of disconnects you with your songs. A sort of chance to hear them as new. Some songs get better and some get worse. It’s the best test to see of they stand the test. Wait a half a year after release and then hear a song on the radio and you know if it’s crap or not.
What’s your favorite non-musical sound?
Are there any non musical sounds?
What is something you still want to learn in life?
Lots and lots of things. Play more instruments, play the ones I meddle with better. Write better songs. And gardening, would love to be able to do that proper. As it is now things tend to die in my care (plant’s that is, not humans or dogs)
If your life was a novel, what would be the title and how would your story end?
“He didn’t understand a thing, but like it” and then in the end of it Paul and John would sourly admit I was a better songwriter than them. (still a bit to go on the second one I guess)
What’s your favorite kind of sandwich and what would you wash it down with?
Dark sourdough bread with french mustard, spring onions and some strong hard cheese with a bottle of dark ale… Hey, getting hungry here…And thirsty too.
What one song never ever leaves your music player’s playlist?
Hard one. Let me think. So many, but Song Of Bernadette, an old Leonard Cohen, sung by Jennifer Warnes form the Famous Blue Raincoat album will do.
