WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?

I’ve not played my first gig as Peak Low yet but my first ever gig was at a school talent show when I was 14. I lived in a deprived area in Wolverhampton with not much happening so when 4 geeky white boys turned up to the school talent show and rocked out playing Lady Madonna, California Dreaming and Song 2 no one could quite believe it. I played drums that night. First and last time I played drums in front of an audience. It felt like nothing else. The kids were screaming, blowing whistles and doing the ‘wee oooo’ to song 2. We ripped up the dinner hall to pieces. I’ve never been able to conjure that energy from an audience since. Though I keep trying

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?

Today. I got snowed in. I ate beans on toast, played some guitar and watched fuzz pedal videos on YouTube. Oh and watched Joker. I love that film soooo much. It got criticism for potentially inciting violence but I thought it was a true depiction of mental health and a society on the edge. Beautiful film

WHAT IS SOMETHING APART FROM YOUR WALLET OR PHONE THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?

Beer. Or my under wear. I need to have under wear in my vicinity at all times. Doesn’t everyone?

WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN?

Paranoid Android by Radiohead. The first time I heard it I was confused, mesmerised and transported to another world. Thats what music should be. Its my benchmark always. I aim to create something as great.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?

It’s how I met my wife. I met her on a night out the week before but never got her number. Then randomly she turns up at my gig the next week. She was there to see the support act but I recognised her as I was playing. We spoke after the gig and 8 years later we’re still together.
