Stephen Black, better known by his adorable stage name Sweet Baboo, took time out of his current UK tour to answer our Quickfire Questions. Read on to find out which of our questions led him to choose All Saint -or- Hefner…

Sweet Baboo’s ‘Motorhome Songs’ EP is out in one week, on the 11th of November, on Moshi Moshi Records.

What song is your earliest musical memory?
David Bellamy – ‘Brontosaurus Will You Wait For Me’.

What was your favourite song as a child?
Either the above or ‘The Alamo Song’ by Marty Robbins.

What song makes you laugh?
‘Eno Collaboration’ by Half Man Half Biscuit or System of a Down – ‘Toxicity’.

What song makes you cry?
Euros Childs – ‘Parents Place’.

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.)
‘Pure Shores’ by All Saints or ‘Love Will Destroy Us in the End’ by Hefner. Both sweet and sexy in equal measures.

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.)
No idea.

Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?
Today it would be ‘Pink Moon’ by Nick Drake.

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

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I’d work in transport.

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.)
Shit, I would have said ‘Thin Lizzy Live’ and Dangerous but that’s a double album too I think, does a single CD count? If so, maybe no one in heaven would have thought to have brought that album up there yet.

Many thanks to Stephen for answering these questions for us and Jonathan for sorting this all out for us.
