Favorite Hong Kong noise: I still haven’t been to HK, so I guess my favorite sound so far is the “you got mail” alert when my HK promoter sends me some new exciting information.
Best gig: When it feels like time is standing still, when I get completely absorbed by the music and become one with my instruments. It happens every now and again.
Stupidest trend: I would have to say white tube socks.
On Hong Kong people dancing: I’m sure they can. Might be difficult for them to do it to music though.
Favorite audience: Any audience, really, as long as they like to listen and pay attention. Sometimes it’s nice when the audience is sitting down.
Funeral music: “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths
Happiest moment: In the bathtub and on stage. And when my children are happy, of course.
On childhood: I was a loner using my imagination a lot.
Day job: Freelance translator
Last punch: I haven’t been in a fistfight since I was seven years old, but it was probably over a cute girl.
On being in a band: Being a solo artist is less complicated, that’s for sure.
Question to ask yourself: Why do you think the Scottish band Belle and Sebastian are so influenced by you?
