    How easy to listen to do you like music?
    I want music that is fairly easy to listen to but sounds way better if I focus on it
    I really don’t care if everything is out of tune and it sounds like it was recorded in a shed as long as it sounds good
    I don’t care if the songs keep stopping for insanely long wig outs as long as most of it ROCKS!
    I want to be able to jump about to it but I don’t might the odd quite or weird moment
    I want to be able to do other stuff at the same time as listen to the music, it doesn’t have to be commercial but it can’t be too loud

    Where and when do you like to listen to music?
    As loud as possible at home when I get in a REALLY bad mood
    If it sounds better really late with all the lights off, incense burning and no-one else around then it’s great
    In the car on a long journey
    As I go to sleep at night
    With someone I love

    Do you prefer more plain rock songs or guitar soundscapes and compositions?
    About 50/50, with fairly clear borders between the songs but still with a feeling that the music is not all quite there
    Mainly rock but with guitar soundscapes in the middle of songs which then change back to the song at the end
    Neither; I want the music to be so mangled and chaotic that I can’t tell
    Definitely soundscapes, I don’t want clear borders between songs or anything like that but one or two rock songs in the mix might just be okay
    Almost all rock songs, but experiments with samples and other cool stuff is okay

    Which of these lyrics is most appealing to you?
    “My violence is a dream, a real dream”
    “A Teenage Riot at a public station”
    “Society is a hole, it makes me lie to my friends”
    “She’s in a bad mood but I’m not falling for it”
    “I can’t get laid because everyone is dead”

    Are you already a Sonic Youth fan?
    I’ve got some albums and I really like them
    I have heard a few early songs and I’m interested in what I’ve heard
    Yeah, they’re my favourite band and I love their really alternative stuff
    I have never heard of them but I’d quite like to now
    I’ve got one or two albums and I think they’re pretty good but I haven’t found anything really special yet and I would like to
  • 8
    Are you willing to experiment?
    I don’t like really weird music and I do have some prejudices against very “alternative” music but in general I’m okay with it
    I’ll listen to anything at least once and have very few prejudices
    Some weird stuff is okay, but if there’s no real tune or lyrics for a whole song I’ll just turn it off
    If the music takes me somewhere I’ve never been before I’ll definitely give it another try but other than that I like most music
    I’ll listen to anything until I like it if I want to, and I have no prejudices whatsoever
  • 9

    I honestly don't give a damn about names
    Thurston Moore
    Kim Gordon
    Steve Shelley
    Lee Ranaldo
