David Sparshott

Illustrator — Suffolk

Name, where are you from?
David Sparshott, I’m originally from a rather dull town called Redhill and now live in rural Suffolk via Bristol and London.

What do you do?
I am an illustrator. Describe your style in three words: Pencil Hand Drawn.

What music defines the teenage you?
90’s Rap, good stuff and very bad stuff. Good stuff; A Tribe Called Quest, Gangstarr. Bad Stuff; Puff Daddy, Ma$e.

A British icon that has inspired you?
David Hockney.

What was the last piece of music you bought?
I bought a few tracks by Loscil this morning from the album '“Endless Falls' with an ear to picking up the album some time soon.

What is your all-time favourite gig?
Johan Johannsson, Barbican 2015 (I think).

What was the last album you bought?
I bought a few recently including Sad City 'Shapes In Formation', Ben Lukas Boysen 'Spells', and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds 'Skeleton Tree'.

 

What was the first song you played on repeat?
'Hit ‘Em High (The Monstars’ Anthem)' from the Space Jam soundtrack! As it was one of my first ever CD’s, this whole album got repeated far more than it probably deserved.

A song from your favourite album?
'The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest' by Bob Dylan.

A song you wish you had written?
'Old Man' by Neil Young.

Most meaningful lyrics to inspire change?
Fela Kuti’s album 'Sorrow Tears and Blood / Colonial Mentality'. It’s quite sparse lyrically but very direct in its portrayal of oppression.

Best song to bring people together?
'You Can Call Me Al' by Paul Simon.

Best love song of all time?
I think a toss up between Van Morrison's 'Sweet Thing' and 'Into My Arms' by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Is there a song you like that people wouldn’t expect?
'Teoy Salap Pamaa' by Angkanang Kunchai, from the amazing album 'The Sound of Siam vol. 2'.
