This month, Henry from Sea Girls runs the gauntlet of our random, stupid queries.
Who was your favourite musician or band when you were 14?
It was Bloc Party, I think. Amy Winehouse, The Wombats, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Killers were all big contenders too! A couple of Sinatra songs have always been pretty close to my heart as well…
What’s your biggest accomplishment?
Everything Sea Girls has managed to achieve so far and the music we have put out.
What was the last thing you broke?
If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?
Popworld on Channel 4. Someone sent me the Best 50 Moments from 2005 with Simon Amstell and Miquita Oliver on YouTube the other day – it’s hilarious.
What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
I watched that film from last year ‘Hereditary’. I love horror, but for some reason, I couldn’t finish watching that film. I felt so sick.
What do you do for fun?
I used to go out a lot, but I’m still trying to find things that are as fun.
Do you believe in aliens?
Yes. But saying that, I do very little thinking about them.
What did you last dream about?
Ummm I don’t remember.
Have you ever fallen over onstage?
I remember falling over in a pub in London once. I pulled myself over with the mic lead I’d stepped on. I had a little roll around. Felt like a legend.
What strength Nandos sauce do you order?
Medium, because it’s safe. I swear it’s the most efficient way to eat chicken. You always eat more of it than a roast. Maybe it’s the sauce or the way it’s cooked I just don’t know.
What is the best present you’ve ever been given?
I don’t want to give a boring answer like “my first guitar”. I’ll come back to you on that as it was probably something really heartfelt!
Have you got any secret tattoos?
I wish I did…
What is your earliest memory?
I have a shit long term memory. I think sitting in a Doctors surgery around 4 years old looking out the window and thinking, “this is such an average and forgettable thing to be doing” and it just stuck with me. I couldn’t have been that ill. Is that poetic at all?
What was the first record you bought?
It was ‘Hot Fuss’ by The Killers bought on CD. My first vinyl record was by The XX, I think.
If you won the lottery, what would you spend the cash on?
I’d probably get some braces cos my teeth could be better. But on a more serious note, I’d try and do something effective about homelessness.
What’s the naughtiest thing you did at school?
Getting drunk before sports lessons.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
I’ve had a few bad hair cuts…
If you could have a superpower of your choosing, what would it be?
Always being happy!
Who would you most like to be stuck in a lift with?
Bruce Willis and Olivia Coleman.
If you were on Mastermind, what would your specialist subject be?
Black Sails, that really tacky Pirate version of GoT series on Amazon Prime.
What would you do if you were Prime Minister for the day?
Call an election!
How punk are you out of ten?
5, and that just sounds like the most un-punk number out of 10, so what does that say?
What is your most treasured possession?
My health and a pair of shoes I bought last year that I like so much that I don’t actually wear them.
Have you ever been to a showbiz party?
I don’t think so. None that looked like showbiz parties anyway!
Why are you like this?
Because I’m not perfect.
Taken from the February issue of Dork. Sea Girls’ new EP ‘Under Exit Lights’ is out 6th March. They tour the UK from 16th April.
