A random and incomplete list of music-makers I like: Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Bjork, Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Massive Attack, Portishead, Patti Smith, Seasick Steve, Prince, Aphex Twin, Fuck Buttons, Jon Hopkins, Miss Kittin, St Vincent, Bat for Lashes and Little Dragon. I strongly dislike Riverdance, Abba and musicals (apart from the Book of Mormon).
I haven't hung up my clubbing gear yet (this equates to runners, the Irish version of trainers), but I'm not out pounding the dance-floors every single weekend as I have a mild case of raver's knee. Yoga helps to keep me zen. I enjoy going to music festivals. I aim to go to more in countries where you don't need wellies. Dancing in wellies can be tough on the toes.
I'm a science storyteller by day and sometimes night, busy swiping the wasps off the apple of truth. A line pilfered shamelessly from Chris Morris. I spent the early part of my career setting bubbles on fire and zapping random objects with a Tesla coil. Now I daydream of those halcyon days as I attempt to manage projects and think strategically.
