ABOUT ME

My name is Ben. If that’s not enough, then here’s a few facts about me.

  • I like old things. I have a 1930s typewriters and a 1920s banjolele.
  • I also love old comedy like Morecambe & Wise.
  • I have an eclectic range of music I enjoy, including: R.E.M., The Four Seasons, The Beatles, Belle & Sebastian and Molotov Jukebox.
  • I love the work of Andy Kaufman. He has inspired me so much.
  • I have a very short attention span and get bored easily. I have so many unfinished songs and stories because I just got bored of them half way through.
  • I have a weird OCD-ish dislike of odd numbers. They just feel wrong.
  • I play piano, ukulele and bass, but I’ve also dabbled with mandolin, bongos, concertina, harmonica, jews harp and even a didgeridoo.
  • I always wanted to have a series of ‘imaginary things’: An imaginary site, an imaginary blog, an imaginary band. And now I do!
  • I hate the word quirky.

If you like social media, I am on Facebook and Twitter.
