SIMON

What was the last book you read?
"i take about a year and a half to read a book, but I'm reading Ian Johnston's Nick Cave biography at the moment. I only generally read on tour."

Do you drive?
"I have a 1978 Scimitar. Really nice looking, but it's always breaking down."

Do you have a favourite painter?
"I'm not a big art aficionado. I do prefer filmes. The last film I saw was Elizabeth. Bizarrely, Princess Margaret was sitting behind me in the cinema, at Kensington Odeon. Very Strange, the Queen's sister watching a film about puttin the Queen's sister in jail and having her beheaded."

Your favourite building?
"I love that Ark building on the main road through Hammersmith. I also like the Trellick Tower [deeply Suede-esque West London tower blcok, said to have inspired by JG Ballard nove High Rise]. It's such an amazing sight as you come down the A40."

What's your favourite TV programme?
"I have all Alan Partridge on video, which is the funniest thing I've ever seen on TV. I thought Queer as Folk was absolutely brilliant, if maybe a little too graphic. And EastEnder remains a constant favourite."

How many pairs of trainers do you own?
"None, I totally avoid them. In fact, I haven't worn anything buy DMs since I was 11."
