When do you do your best writing?
I do a lot in hotel rooms been I have my own room. Almost always then. Also late at night when theres no pressure to be doing anything else. Initial inspiration usually comes during isolation of one kind or another.

The towns we played in Northern Italy last year are the  general consensus.

Gibson ES 335. Billy plays a 1972 model through a variety of Fender Amps. On the record he also emits his 66 Telecaster.



Best collaboration in 2011, and 2012?
Hard to say. The worst was definitely LULU.
Musical Influences?
Otis Redding, Iggy Pop, Al Green, Tina Turner, Motown, The Clash, Television, Prince – currently listening to Azelia Banks & Frank Ocean.
Writing Influences?
Curtis Mayfield and Lou Reed come to mind first.
Most Grimey thing done on the road? (one story….) 
Our truly Grimey stories don’t deserve your ink. But yes they do exist. We’re gentleman though we can’t go into detail.
Largest audience played in 2012?
