Any Other Questions with... Bad Sounds

This month, Bad Sounds' Callum runs the gauntlet of our random, stupid queries.



Hello. How are you?
Hiya. I’m good, thank you.

What have you been up to today?
Working on ideas for our live shows.

What’s your favourite thing about being a musician?
Errrrrm? Pass.

Who’s your favourite pop star?
Awww man, it changes so regularly. MJ will always be up there tho.

What was the first record you bought?
I can’t actually be sure tbh. I remember Ewan’s was ‘Miss E… So Addictive’ by Missy Elliott. Mine was probs something v embarrassing… either Abba Gold or Limp Bizkit’s ’Chocolate Starfish...’. Two records that I wouldn’t recommend listening to b2b.

Would you rather have a Number 1 single or a Number 1 album?
I’m not too fussed about having a "Number 1” anything really (I say this now… if it ever comes close to happening then fully expect me to change my opinion on that). I think it would be dope if in the future someone else brings something out, and it references something we’ve done tho. Unless it's shit.

What’s your biggest accomplishment?
Yeeeesh, how do you answer that?

Do you believe in aliens?
Ha! I can see Ewan rolling his eyes at me already. Yes, I think there probably is - or has been/will be - other life in the universe, which, is fucking massive btw. Maybe not “Aliens” but maybe “life”. Evolution takes a long time, and again, the universe is massive. I could talk about this for a long time, but I don’t want people to think I’m crazy.

What was the last thing you broke?
Ewan smashes something every time he comes over. I have to give him plastic cups now.

Who’s your favourite new band?
Loyle Carner. I knoowwwww, he's not a band.

What is your earliest memory?
Are these the questions from the end of Frank Ocean’s album?

If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?
Why can I only bring one thing back? Surely if I can do it, I can do it more than once, right? Can I trade a few species? Rats for Western black rhinos (definitely had to Google that but OBVS rhinos), Cockroaches for Sabre-toothed tigers? Seagulls for Woolly Mammoths? Right? Deal. No takesies backsies.

What’s the best song you’ve written or played on?
Seriously tho. Frank Ocean… is this you?

Have you ever won anything?
The hearts of a million beautiful laydeeezzzzz, ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL.

What did you last dream about?
I don’t really remember my dreams unless I’m ill, it's weird. I had sleep paralysis for the first time about a month ago. I woke up from a freaky dream, couldn’t move, then heard something come in through the bedroom door, then it felt like someone was slowly creeping onto the bed and onto my chest and I couldn’t breath. Then I woke up properly. That shit scared the bejeezus outta me. Haven’t had it since tho.

Have you got any secret tattoos?
Nope.

How punk are you out of ten?
3.

What is the best present you’ve ever been given?
Aaah I can’t really remember, but anyone who knows me knows that I don’t do cards. I really hate them. But our Mum and Dad get kind of upset when I don’t get them one for Xmas/birthday or whatever. I once wrote “happy fathers day” on a banana and gave it to my dad. I don’t think I even bought the banana myself. I think I took from a fruit bowl in his house. At least he could eat his card after he read the heart felt message I wrote in (on) it.

How do you relax?
I actually have no idea.

What’s your biggest fear?
Missing out.
