The 405 Artist Picks // Lucy Rose
Listening To: Pretty much everything... mainly the obvious choices, but a recent discovery of Scott Walker (Scott 4) has changed things.
I kinda go through phases with music, can't stop listening to an album none stop and then move on. I'm the same with most things.
Reading: Everything written by Roald Dahl, starting with of course Matilda. Danny Champion of the World, George's Marvellous Medicine and James and the Giant Peach. Loved them when I was younger and still do now.
Other than that, I'm a monthly subscriber to National Geographic, which helps keep my brain working.
Watching: Gilmore Girls..... I LOVE IT!
On the film front, the favourites have to be Hook and Mighty Ducks.
Playing: Racket sports. I used to be a tennis coach back home and loved it. Wish I played more now. Big fan of the game 'Would You Rather...'
Eating: Porridge every morning with of course a cup of tea. Apple pie and custard, red peppers, chocolate, milk, spare ribs, mussels and TWIGLETS!!!
Promo: Lucy Rose is set to release her debut single, ‘Middle of the Bed’, on Monday 8th August 2011.

Here we met our drummer Anthony and wrote a lot of new material together. Jeremy and Tom completed the line-up recently and here we are. [read more]
Though I (Zac Pennington) may not be able to convincingly play an E minor chord, I can accurately estimate the caloric content of nearly any commercial packaged foodstuff, within a margin of error of roughly 50 calories. I am mildly mysophobic and shamefully androphobic. I like cats, and maintain a physical list of potential names for feline companions the way that a doomed spinster might collect childrenâs clothing. I am the singer and artistic director for the pop group Parent... (continued) [read more]
