(10 for 2014!) Quickfire Questions #60: Tommy Wright of Young Kato

By on Thursday, 12th December 2013 at 1:00 pm

#7 on this year’s TGTF 10 for 2014 reader’s poll was young band from Cheltenham Young Kato. Yesterday, we posted this q&a I did with lead singer and master of hair Tommy Wright. Today, we’ve got his answers to the TGTF Quickfire Questions. Ah yes, we take a stroll down memory lane with Tommy, back to the days of early Busted, as well as a sob-filled scene in 1998. I’ve gotten you hooked, haven’t I? Read on…

What song is your earliest musical memory?
I have a ridiculous memory and can still remember myself at about 4-year old playing a toy guitar in front of the whole class. I didn’t play any actual chords, I just strummed along and sung ‘In the Summertime’ by I think Mungo Jerry? Weird child, I know… [Not at all, Tommy. If you’re going to remember a song, make it a classic – Ed.]

What was your favourite song as a child?
As I’ve grown up my musical taste has changed dramatically so can’t really say what my favourite song was, but I know I was at the perfect age when Busted released their debut album, haha!

What song makes you laugh?
Colt 45 – ‘Afroman’

What song makes you cry?
Aqua – ‘Turn Back Time’. I vividly remember the video montage after England got knocked out of the ’98 World Cup – I cried my eyes out.


What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
There are at least 2 songs on our album that I’ve written specifically with my girlfriend in mind. We’ve been together for nearly 3 years and she’s been at pretty much every gig, in front of nine people and 9,000.

What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.)
Most likely the one in the previous answer if it all goes wrong. I’m confident it won’t, though.

Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?

‘Imagine’ – John Lennon.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)

I’d have to go with Morrissey and Marr as a combination.

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?

In 2011, I had my place booked at university, I even had my accommodation. I was off to study Film and Television and had a real passion for it. However after a week at Reading Festival, I knew I had to take at least one year out to pursue music.

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.)
U2 – ‘The Joshua Tree’ because it is my favorite album of all time.
