right at the beginning

happiness is an illusion

06:Could you describe your work for the people that haven't experienced it?

just random stuff from my collections

06:Where are you based ?

many, many different neighbourhoods and towns; some good, some not so good

06:What was your parent's dream for you?

absolutely no idea

06:What was your father's profession?


06:What is your opinion about the current situation in Europe?

what current situation are you referring to? my opinion anyway is ultimately as worthless as anyone else's

06:What are your earliest punk rock memories?

seems a long time ago now, I'm not one for much retrospection and definitely not nostalgic - nostalgia is mistakenly attributed to events and places and times, when it's really about missing being young

06:Do you think that your music is sexy?

some is very, a lot isn't at all

06:Have you ever lost your interest in music?

not really

06:Do you catch yourself thinking about death?

consciousness of death is the price humans pay for having language

the most important thing is reminding myself that nothing's important

music that's commercially popular

06:Which record of yours of you love the most?

they all mean a lot to me, it's hard to differentiate

06:Who inspires you?

oh, too many to mention

06:What book (books) do you read these days?

once again, too many to mention; I do keep a running list at my blog (williambennett.blogspot.com)

06:Is there a person that has influenced you musically more than any other?

influence comes in different forms, both positive and negative - and a lot musically for me comes from extra-musical sources, so there isn't a single person that I could fairly single out

06:What is the best idea you have had so far?

still waiting for it

06:Can you send us a picture (of you or of something/place) that best illustrates your current state of mind to 
post along with you answers?
