Lawrence ‘Trev’ Cole, Daniel Harvey and Rob ‘Paul Roberts’ White of Dog is Dead – who came in at #3 on this year’s 10 for 2013 poll – kindly answered our Quickfire Questions and gave us some surprising answers. Maybe there are more behind those alpacas than we originally thought…

What song is your earliest musical memory?
Trev: Listening to my Mum’s ‘Shades of Soul’ CD in the car when I was 5. Aretha Franklin, Otis Reading, Sam and Dave, etc.

What was your favourite song as a child?
Trev: I was big into ‘Break Stuff’ by Limp Bizkit for a short time.

What song makes you laugh?
Paul: Anything by Flight of The Conchords.

What song makes you cry?
Trev: Ennio Morricone – ‘C’era una Volta’.

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.)
Trev: Jimi Hendrix – ‘Little Wing’.

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.)
All: Gangnam Style.

Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?
Harvey: Simon and Garfunkel – ‘Sound of Silence’.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
Trev: Martin McDonagh.

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
Trev: Spanish translator for Playboy Magazine. [Trev speaks Spanish, as he grew up in Chile.]

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.)
Paul: It would have to be ‘Neon Bible’ by Arcade Fire, or ‘Becoming a Jackal’ by Villagers.

Many thanks to Trev, Harvey and Paul for helping us out and Harriet for sorting this q&a for us.
