Favourite Levellers song
Carry me

Do you have a ritual that you always do,
before you go onstage?
Putting on my make up etc – I get a bit stuck into pre gig rituals sometimes, and when I realise that is the case,
I stop them

Do you still have a role to play in addressing the problems of our times or have you said all that needs to be said? Do you think we want a better world badly enough?
I like opinions in lyrics rather than pulp, but I don’t think they have a big effect on their own, but as part of a greater push, they work

If you had to choose a new name for the band what would it be and why?
Drunkellers

Do you get approached in the street much by fans and asked to sign autographs and pose for photos? 
No – I only wear drag on stage

In your opinion, what makes for a truly great festival experience?
Beautiful Days. No corporate sponsorship and decent food and beer available

If a movie were to be made of The Levellers, whom would you most like to play your part and why?
Mini Me
