Formative musical experience
Caoimhe - Something went off in my head when I heard Jimi Hendrix's 'Voodoo Child' for the first time. My sister and brother played it to me as a kid, and after it finished I went into my room and drew a goat’s head on my foot.
Karl - All when I was 10/11 years old - first piano lesson, hearing Grandmaster Flash at a neighbour's house a friend and I had surreptitiously entered, seeing Stop Making Sense at the movies.
Musical Guilty Pleasure:
Caoimhe - Planxty - 'Queen of the Rushes'.
Karl - I do like both Robyn and Black Sabbath... at the same time.
