Any Other Questions with… The Magic Gang

Jack Kaye from The Magic Gang tackles this month’s daft queries.

This month, Jack Kaye from The Magic Gang runs the gauntlet of our random, stupid queries.

What was the first record you bought?

The Marshall Mathers LP. I heard it in the playground and was drawn in by the swearing.

How tall are you?

6ft 1 to the press, but a humble 6ft in reality.

What strength Nandos sauce do you order?


Have you ever had an imaginary friend?


What was the last thing you broke?

I broke my glasses on tour while playfighting our tour manager.

What’s your biggest fear?

Falling from a great height, closely followed by loneliness

If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?

A diplodocus. Or if Diplo ever went extinct, then him.

Do you believe in aliens?

I’ll say yes.

If you won the lottery, what would you spend the cash on?

I’d take all my friends on holiday.

What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?

I fell off stage at a festival last summer. That was quite bad.

What have you got in your pockets right now?

Nothing… really, nothing.

Have you ever been to a showbiz party?

Yes, they’re not all they’re cracked up to be.

What would you do if you were Prime Minister for the day?

I think it’d be quite a rough day to be prime minister. Probably run and hide. Get on a train somewhere nice and just stay out the way for a bit.

Tell us a secret about yourself?


What’s your fave TV show?

I really like this show called Pawn Stars. It’s a reality show about a pawn shop in Vegas.

Have you ever written a fan letter?

I haven’t.

How punk are you out of ten?

What even really is punk anymore? I think that’s quite a punk answer.

Have you ever sold your own CD or merch on eBay?

No, but someone sent me a link to a signed one for £50 which got me thinking.

Do you have any interesting scars?

I have a big scar on my knee, from the stage thing.

Have you ever been thrown out of somewhere?

Yes, there’s a bar in Brighton where I’m on first name terms with the bouncer.

Why are you like this?

Blame the parents, as they say.
