Name, where are you from?
Lewis Bootle. Satellite towns off the M25. (Hertfordshire).

Describe your style in three words?
Always changing, literally.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Sticky Fingers at Kentish Town Forum - They had just released their album in 2014, it was a great time in my life and the tracks were absolute bangers, However, the track to nominate is off their first album. It's called 'How To Fly'.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Rolling Stones & The Beatles - who else?

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Hip Hop, Graphic Design & Skateboarding.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
George Orwell, so I can hear his prediction of the next 40 years.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
The Roundhouse in London supporting Frank Turner. I saw my first ever gig there (Enter Shikari) and it's mine to headline someday.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Richard Thompson. His lyrical seasoning and storytelling is some of the best. Not many people know about him. The track to nominate has to be '1952 Vincent Black Lightning' - A story about an old classic motorbike, a bank heist and the love of a redhead in leathers.
