Name, where are you from?
Jerskin Fendrix, UK.
Describe your style in three words?
A T-shirt so big it makes me look like a toddler wearing its parents’ clothes.
What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Maxim Vengerov playing Mozart at the Royal Festival Hall, Birmingham in 2012 because I was at high school and it was snowing and my girlfriend at the time just rocked up to school in her car and said we are going to Birmingham to go see Maxim Vengerov and it was super cool.
If you could be on the line up with any two artists in history?
Pavement and Arthur Russell so I can roar with laughter.
Which subcultures have influenced you?
The only two people I know say “Badarse” are my older brother and Millie Bobby Brown and I like a kind of lateral subculture like that, or like people who roll toilet paper up into little balls to wipe their arse (I do not do this).
If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I would like a piano lesson from Nina Simone.
Of all the venues you’ve been to or played, which is your favourite?
The Windmill because it took me in when no one else would.
Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Joanna Newsom should have won the Nobel Prize. (She is not on Spotify so I have chosen 'Right On' by the Roots that samples her instead).
