    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 donít care if the songs keep stopping for insanely long wig outs as long as most of it ROCKS!
    I want to be able to do other stuff at the same time as listen to the music, it doesnít have to be commercial but it canít be too loud
    I want to be able to jump about to it but I donít might the odd quite or weird moment
    I really donít care if everything is out of tune and it sounds like it was recorded in a shed as long as it sounds good

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

    Do you prefer more plain rock songs or guitar soundscapes and compositions?
    Neither; I want the music to be so mangled and chaotic that I canít tell
    Almost all rock songs, but experiments with samples and other cool stuff is okay
    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
    Definitely soundscapes, I donít want clear borders between songs or anything like that but one or two rock songs in the mix might just be okay

    ďSociety is a hole, it makes me lie to my friendsĒ
    ďMy violence is a dream, a real dreamĒ

    Are you already a Sonic Youth fan?
    Iíve got some albums and I really like them
    Yeah, theyíre my favourite band and I love their really alternative stuff
    Iíve got one or two albums and I think theyíre pretty good but I havenít found anything really special yet and I would like to
    I have never heard of them but Iíd quite like to now
    I have heard a few early songs and Iím interested in what Iíve heard
  • 8
    Are you willing to experiment?
    If the music takes me somewhere Iíve never been before Iíll definitely give it another try but other than that I like most music
    Some weird stuff is okay, but if thereís no real tune or lyrics for a whole song Iíll just turn it off
    Iíll listen to anything until I like it if I want to, and I have no prejudices whatsoever
    I donít like really weird music and I do have some prejudices against very ďalternativeĒ music but in general Iím okay with it
    Iíll listen to anything at least once and have very few prejudices
