Ahead of the Temper Trap‘s headline appearance TGTF’s stage at Liverpool Sound City this Friday, we asked guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto to answer our Quickfire Questions. I didn’t mean to trouble him about what album he’d choose to bring to heaven, honest!

The Temper Trap are set to go on at 22.00 (10 PM). Pop rhythmic sensations Clock Opera will play at 20.30 (8:30 PM). But come early to see Spanish band Dear Prudence will be playing at 19.30 (7:30 PM).

1. What song is your earliest musical memory?
‘Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree’

2. What was your favourite song as a child?
‘Beat it’ – Michael Jackson

3. What song makes you laugh?
You Make My Dreams Come True’ – Hall and Oates. Mainly because of the montage in Set Brothers.

4. What song makes you cry?
I’ve Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good – Nina Simone

5. What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
‘Push the Little Daisies’ – Ween.

6. What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.) Darondo – ‘Didn’t I’. Calms me down when I am in a unpleasant place angry or sad.

7. Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself? ‘Maggot Brain’ by Funkadelic, with probably one of the most emotional guitar solos ever written.

8. Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.) Hunter S. Thompson.

9. If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I would probably be working at the family restaurant.

10. If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? So you’re telling me I could bring ‘All Things Must Pass’. Fuck. ‘Since I Left You’, by the Avalanches. Man, the hardest question.
