Recent Band to Watch and nattily dressed band of musical men The Hosts announced a couple of days ago that they would opening for fellow Sheffielders the Crookes, where they will be returning to Sheffield University’s Student Union on the 3rd of October, the site where it all began for the New Pop quartet. Ahead of their support slot, we asked Hosts’ frontman and ringleader Tom Hogg to humour us and answer the TGTF Quickfire Questions. His choice of alternative career isn’t much of a surprise. You’ll see, as away we go…

What song is your earliest musical memory?
‘Please Mr. Postman’ – The Beatles.

What was your favourite song as a child?
‘Peaches’ – The Stranglers.

What song makes you laugh?
‘The Lodger’ – Jake Thackray.

What song makes you cry?
‘Afraid to Sleep’ – Roy Orbison.

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.)
‘Queen of the Highway’ – The Doors.

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.)
‘Some Velvet Morning’ – Lee Hazlewood &and Nancy Sinatra.

Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?
‘God Only Knows’ – Beach Boys.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
Upton Sinclair.

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
Haberdasher (dependent on the hours).

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.)
‘At Folsom Prison’ – Johnny Cash.

Many thanks to Tom for answering our q&a. The Hosts’ latest single ‘Give Your Love to Her’ is out now on Fierce Panda. Catch the band open for the Crookes at Sheffield University Student Union’s Foundry next Thursday the 3rd of October.
