Danny Goffey

Musician — Somerset

Name?
Danny Goffey

Where are you from?
Somerset. Previously in the suburbs.

Describe your style in three words?
Not quite right.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Inspiral Carpets at Jericho Tavern, Oxford. It was my first real glimpse of a loud punky live band and it inspired (no pun) me to get my own band going.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
The Who - Late 60's for the raucousness and to watch Moon going for it.
David Bowie - Thin White Duke era for the glamour!

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Probably the 'Shoegazers' followed by the 'Madchester' scene when I was a teenager. The Stiff records scene with the likes of Elvis Costello, Ian Dury and Devo. I was also a part of the illegal rave scene. Spiral Tribe and all that stuff.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
There's way too many to name but I'd love to have had an hour with Bowie. I met him once when we played at his Meltdown Festival, but 5 minutes wasn't enough!

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Troubadour in LA. Loads of history with a great intimate feel. Good night guaranteed.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Not sure if he is that unsung but I have a soft spot for Elliot Smith. He sadly died young but overcame a tough life to make some brilliant albums and I'm sure he'd be making great music if he was still around today.

And it's all over now, baby blue”

‘It’s All Over Now Baby Blue’ by Bob Dylan.

A song you wished you had written?
‘Teenage Kicks’ by The Undertones.

Best song to turn up loud?
‘Whole Lotta Love’ by Led Zeppelin.
