What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? Prince got me into being an avid fan of music and him certainly but I never thought I could anything like that. It was seeing bands my age in the local youth centre playing Nirvana songs like Breed that made me realise it might be something I could do. A band from the area called the Daisies (who signed to Parlophone Records around the same time as Supergrass did - who were my age) the singer/songwriter of whom got me involved and encouraged and taught guitar lessons at the the youth centre which spawned a couple of bands too. Including indie-grunge grrl band Frances Belle who featured in Mavis Bayton’s celebrated Women In Rock book and members went out with my band members including Terri Bonham who went on to manage Smilex and form Quickfix Recordings with me. It was a time for guitars and dressing down and going to and playing gigs in general. That wave of bands, on either side of the country in the early 90’s (whether it was Kurt recommending obscure stuff or the Britpop scene rising from Camden pubs) had a great hand in sending people into small venues to find their next pop thrill. This was a perfect time to believe in a solid career as a rebellious musician.
