Michael Bracewell stopped by to answer 5.5 questions with TJWS in July. Here’s what he had to say:
What’s the first song you ever remember hearing?
I think the first song I ever heard was Kylie Minogue’s, Locomotion. I remember dancing to it as a kid! I was a cool child
Tell us about the first time you heard yourself on radio.
First proper time I listened when I was about 14, and I heard 57 by Biffy Clyro. I loved it but couldn’t find anything about the band at all!! It started an obsession with the band that I still have for today haha.
What non-instrument sound or sounds do you love? Hmm, this is odd. I kind of love the ambient sounds of busy city areas in a reverberated room of people moving and talking, like a music hall, or museum. The exchange of sounds as they fight in the frequencies for dominance in the air interests me. I sound kind of arty, however I’m not. Just a big lover of science and sound.
What is something you still want to learn in life? Everything that I am currently doing! I want to master it and be comfortable in that area, whether be it music, design, etc.
What’s your favorite kind of sandwich and what would you wash it down with?
I want to put something typical northern and British here like a pork pie sandwich but I would be lying… I love a pizza toastie… cheese,pesto and pepperoni with a good fruity cider… it’s because I’m a classy kindof guy!!
What one song never ever leaves your music player’s playlist?
Currently anything by Arcane Roots or And So I Watch You From A Far personally. In the band, collectively, I imagine it’s, Biffy Clyro, Reuben, Brand New, and Foo Fighters.
