Q&A: Paint Me A Phoenix
Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

We live on a beautiful planet, it’s more than a shame that some of the things we do to it are not so beautiful. It’s frustrating… paint me a phoenix? Are there any eyes that are open?
If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be and why?
Yum.. you can make this happen right? Umm.. maybe a Cherry Bounty? It was limited, some believe it was just a myth. Or maybe one of those Wonka Mudsludges!
