An Interview With Pizzagirl

Having had Beatles on the brain for a while now, specifically the early years of their hysteria-inducing mop tops, I started to think about their early interviews. I looked up some of those early pressers and was taken aback by just how many times the fab foursome was asked about money and marriage, but there were also some gems hidden amongst the clunkers. And so, inspired by the early press conferences of the Beatles, especially their US tour interviews, I decided to ask some of those very same questions to some of the best and brightest making music today.

It's getting ever closer to the October release date of Pizzagirl's debut record, first timer. If first single "Body Biology" is any indication, the album will be full of quirky, sugary nostalgia pop - easily-digested kitsch with bite. It's cerebral shimmy. Or, as per his own words, "tacky." Liam Brown's brainchild is picking up support from anyone and everyone, so be ready to hear a lot more about Pizzagirl in the near future.

Liverpool fella Brown took on the Beatles challenge, check out his tartly succinct replies below. And mark October 11 on your calendar, so as to snap up the aptly-named first timer.
