Is Monkey Swallows the Universe the first band you've been in?
I was in Ormondroyd, but I'm just in MSTU now.

Since I was 7.
Any instruments you wish you could play?
I would love to play the flute, trumpet or saxophone.

Training to be a Primary School teacher in Birmingham and going out to restaurants for meals!
Do you get nervous before / during a gig?
Sometimes, although after taking a leaf out of Richard Hawley's book to not drink before a gig, I've found I actually feel less nervous than when I do.
If not music, what would you be doing?
Dancing? Watching Friends DVDs?
