What is the most played song on your iPod?
'Train in Vain' by The Clash. Before Channel [V], I worked a crummy job that made me miserable. Every day after I'd clock off, I'd put this track on my iPod and bounce my way home. It was my anti-depressant.
What is the best strategy for finding a toilet at Big Day Out that doesn't involve queuing for two hours?
Pissing in a bottle.
Best live music venue in Oz?
The Forum in Melbourne. It's just such a pretty, old theatre, and the luminescent blue ceiling makes it feel like you're outside under the stars. Also, it's not far from Chinatown for the requisite post-gig pig out.
Name the worst gig you've had the misfortune of sitting through.
Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music show in 2010 was pretty bloody boring. I think it holds the prestigious title of being the only gig in which I've fallen asleep.
If you could ban one song from Channel [V] what would it be?
Anything and everything by Chris Brown. That little c**t doesn't deserve our support.
Dance floor or seated?
Dance floor. I'm a slave to the groove.*
* 'm only saying this so you guys think I'm a real young, hip cat. In reality, I'd be the first person to point out the obvious and numerous advantages of seating over standing.
Three artists (dead* or alive) you'd bring on a road trip from Sydney to Perth? *The dead ones can't do driving shifts.
Kanye for the LOLz, Johnny Cash for the stories, and Paula Abdul for the drugs. Oh, and Paul Kelly so I can hug him while he sleeps.
All time greatest movie soundtrack?
The Big Chill. When I get together with my old uni mates, we like to pretend we're the cast from this movie. Then we decide which one of us should be the dude who dies at the start.
It's time to scorch a hole in the dance floor when I hear...
Outkast's 'The Way You Move'. Can you feel that B-A-S-S bass? Yes, yes I can.
What is your most embarrassing moment as a presenter?
Being seen in public with the other presenters.
One album that every human on the face of the planet should be sat down and forced to listen to at least once in their life?
Doolittle by The Pixies. For all of its aggression and peculiarity, it truly is the perfect pop album. And the impact it had on me when I was younger is immeasurable.
NASA asks you to pick one song to be beamed into outer space as a message from the human race to alien life forms - what do you pick? No pressure.
'Someone Like You', with the note, "No need to come probe us, Adele is currently shoving this up all of our arses."
Whose old stuff do you like better than their new stuff?
I regret the period of my life when I was heaps into...
If I started a band they would be called Cock of Godz and they would play Scandinavian thrash metal. AND THEY WOULD BE AWESOME AND HAVE AN AWESOME FACEBOOK PAGE THAT THE LOVELY PEOPLE AT VMUSIC SHOULD LINK TO. AWESOME.
