I knew he was into some good 70's punk, but there's some quality choices in there, he even mentions God Speed! You Black Emperor.

Bets on Hermione coming out as a Bikini Kill fan within 6 months?

Edit- For anyone who can't be bothered looking at the article, his choices are -

Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump

The Libertines - Up the Bracket

Weezer - The Blue Album

The Pixies - Doolittle

The Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks

Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible

T-Rex - Electric Warrior

Pulp - Different Class

Hope of the States - The Lost Riots

The Arcade Fire - Funeral

Well...yes and no. There are a couple of what people would deem "cool" choices on there e.g The Arcade Fire, but an album like Different Class is certainly not a "cool" choice, I can't remember the last time Pulp were "cool", but it's an undeniably good album.

Personally, I think it's nice to see a young 'celebrity' actor who is clearly into music and has his head screwed on, whether the music is seen as trendy 'scene' music or not. Although I expect that a child star who's into music will be treated with high cynicism by 'the scene'. It's the classic rule of something being cool until people start to like it.

I hope he forms a fucking brilliant punk band with Hermione and Ron, and everyone will try and hate it because it'll seem like such a shit idea, but everyone will secretly have them on their Ipods.

He could have put a million shit albums on there and you'd be raving as long as he had the Holy Bible.:D Joking aside there are some rather good albums on that list including the aforementioned Pulp and Aracde Fire albums, as well as Hope of the States.

Haha, probably. I do like the image of him sticking on Faster in his dressing room to psyche him up for filming a big Quidditch match.
