Irvine Welsh

should not be connected with pop literature just out of compliment. Eventhough he created this genre with «Trainspotting» to some extent. That’s why he should just be considered one of the best contemeporary Bristish authors.

a song that reminds you of school
David Bowie - Starman

I remember the video, him camping around with Mick Ronson on «Top Of The Pops». Watching «Velvet Goldmine» recently makes me realise that Bowie saved a generation of sensitive working-class boys from the stigma of teenage virginity. You could act a bit fruity, pretend to be bisexual, and still have a bird, which was nice.

your boozed up anthem
The Pogues - The Boys From The County Hell

If you take the period from the end of punk to the start of acid house and then remove Shane MacGowan and Nick Cave, you've got next to nothing.

a record you fell in love to
Culture Club - Karma Chameleon

I don't particularly like it, it was just there at the time. Mind you it displaced one of the most depressing records ever to reach number one - UB40's «Red, Red Wine». I still have the odd suicidal twinge when I hear that one.

first record you remember
The Beatles - From Me To You

It reminds me of my mum and dad picking me up and throwing me about to that one. They loved the Beatles. I inherited that. You should rebel against your parents taste, but you can't really fuck off the Beatles, can you?

the song to be played at your funeral
Joe Dolce - Shuddap Ya Face
a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You

The last summer is always the greatest summer of your life. So it has to be «Music Sounds Better With You». It was burning up Ibiza when we were over there last summer at the Manumission Motel.

your ultimate heartbreak song
ABBA - S.O.S.

I associate it with the end of a nasty intense teen romance on the Friday followed by one of the worst/best (delete according to taste) pub battles when Hibs played at Motherwell in the seventies. I recall a jagged lump of concrete crashing through the window and whizzing an inch past my face as the juke box blared out «S.O.S.».

a song that inspires you
Iggy Pop - I'm Bored

There isn't one thing and one moment, but when i was sixteen I was out pissed on the town with three friends. Only two of us came back alive. Ever since then i've been trying to make sense of things and i think a lot of the writing comes from that. If I had to pick a track, I think it would be «I’m Bored». When I started reading I was bored by most books and the touted writers. Iggy's songs always inspires me, some people see it as just petulance, but i see it, like punk, as a challenge to be yourself. Only boring people are bored for long, and bored people are always boring. It's in your own hands to sort it out.
