I love to read almost anything, too much to mention here. My
favourite books include Catch 22, The Age of Reason, Orlando, Henry
and June, Down and out in Paris and London, Hunger, Notes from the
underground etc. I am also particularly fond of allegorical science
fiction like Blindness, Woman on the edge of time, Cat's Cradle
etc. My favourite non fiction at the moment has to be Working by
Studs Terkel (although Oliver Postgate's autobiography is pretty
I am also obsessed with comics and cartoons and love Crumb, Joe
Sacco, Marjane Satrapi, Saul Steinberg, Will Eisner, Bill
Sienkiewicz, Dave McKean, Eddie Campbell, Ralph Steadman etc...I'll
stop before I get carried away.
Film wise I like a bit of everything from cheap explotation cinema,
British kitchen sink, documentaries and weird animations (The
Point, Fantastic Planet, American Pop etc).
Music: I tend to love stuff that you can dance to that is put
together with real instruments as opposed to auto tune/a vocoder
(although a vocoder when used right is not a bad thing). Heavily
into funk, afrobeat, post-punk, jazz, a little bit of industrial,
krautrock, weird psychedelic oddities from around the world, as
well as disco, Bollywood, and folk. Just discovered the musical
goldmine that is Mixcloud and weird and wonderful genre mash-ups
such as folk funk, country funk, swamp rock, yacht rock etc.
Absolutly love Scott Walker, Radiohead, and Can.
