(10 for 2013!) Quickfire Questions #38: Shields

By on Monday, 17th December 2012 at 1:00 pm

Newcastle’s Shields made a fine showing on this year’s 10 for 2013 poll, coming in at a respectable #7. So naturally, we sent our Quickfire Questions over to them and here our their answers. Are the Simpsons *that* ingrained in Britain? ::facepalm:: And yep, Jacko makes yet another appearance…

What’s your first musical memory?
John: The ‘Moonwalker’ video by Michael Jackson.
Luke: The film Labyrinth with David Bowie.
Dave: The film Yellow Submarine.

What was your favorite song as a child?
‘Do the Bartman’ – Bart Simpson. [They didn’t specify who was the Simpsons fan, so we can only assume they’re all equally enamoured with Matt Groening. – Ed.]

What song makes you laugh?
New Order’s ‘World in Motion’ (for the John Barnes rap).


What song makes you cry?
Tom: ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ – Sinead O’ Connor.

What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love?
‘My Heart Will Go On’ by Celine Dion. (The dance remix version.)

What song makes you think of being upset or angry
Any song by One Direction makes me angry.

Which song do you wish you had written yourself?
The Teletubbies theme tune. That guy is minted.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
John: Hunter S. Thompson.
Dave: Aldous Huxley.
Rich: Bob Dylan.
Luke: Quentin Tarantino.
Tom: J.K. Rowling.

If you hadn’t become a musician, what job do you think you would be doing right now?
Luke: pro footballer.

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why?
If God said I could only bring one album to heaven, I would say, “Nah God… you’re alright, I’ll just stay here mate.”

Special thanks to the chaps in Shields for answering our questions and Joe for sorting this q&a out for us.
