We teamed up for a series of Q&As with the guys from Fat Penguin, and one nosy penguin interviewed Clair this week to get to her a little better.
— What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
— Tell us your funniest joke?
A dun up
A dun up who? (I done a poo)
Oh you smelly thing…
— When did you first start playing music?
I was about 6 years old and my brother’s friend taught me my first tune on the féadog Stáin (tin whistle.) Also I had been singing Zippidy Doo Dah when I was 3 and Dancing in the Street and Magic Dance by David Bowie by the time I was 5.
— What was the first album you bought?
I think it was either Without You I’m Nothing by Placebo or Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins. It could also be The Head on the Door by The Cure.
— What was the first gig you went to?
My first big gig on my own was Garbage. And it wasn’t garbage.
— Who’s currently top of your Spotify/ITunes plays?
Hmmm. Artie Shaw, Nine Inch Nails and Kay Starr.
— What’s your pre-gig ritual?
Get all my instruments out, tuned and ready, hopefully in time for the gig.
— If you could tour with any other artist/band, who would it be and why?
Agghhh, there are too many!!David Bowie. This needs no explanation.
