8. Do you currently own a bass amp? Do you intend to buy one? -I dinna hae a bass amp - but I hae one o them Marshall stacks that clips ontae my belt.

10. Do you have any previous bass playing experience (please note, this is not necessarily a requisite)? Please give details: Put it like this -my bass playing is about as good a standard as Lucifers singing - what I lack in some ways I more than make up for in others.

11. Do you have previous band experience in any other capacity? Please give details: Ohhh yes, but I have done far too much to list here -anything on drums except Jazz - unless it's a wee Jam wi Bug. I once mooned at a guy whilst he was live on Northsound - Ali Pat Ma Bongos pretended to lick my crack tae -he he he -then Jim Gellately came in and had to pretend he was really cross with us, he he he

I have done heaps of radio stuff.

I met Roy Castle at an airport -I had chatted up the stewardess so managed to get off for a quick tab -and holy fuck there's Roy walking towards me -bald as a coot after the cancer treatment tae -but I had a wee blether wi him and at least he didnae tap a fag aff me.

These are the sort of stories that will keep the driver awake on those long touring nights.

Wait till I tell ye aboot the Swedish twins and the sports car ,he he he Vroom Vrooom, she grabbed hold of it and said Hello Mum hello Aunty Doris.

12. Please give details of your current employment status: I am currently engaged from time to time taking the money at the door on Fudge nights, that and writing about bands and either bigging them up or writing REALLY bad reviews which I then throw in a bin.I also work for major artists who I'd rather not mention as some are rather shite and it ain't gonna do me any favours name dropping them.

13. Do you hold a current driving licence? Do you own a car? Ohh yes

14. Do you have any criminal convictions? If so, please give details (these will not necessarily count against you): Amazingly - NO - I got deported from Namibia but as I explained to them in the Jail the cocaine and $25000 belonged to Howard and I only met him the once in Wales and got so monged that woke up in Tanzania with some bloke called Richie .

17. Additional information to support your application (e.g. quality of your rock shapes, ability to take a kicking on stage, ownership of massive van, close relationship with record label MD, et cetera): If I was you I would not attempt to get too close as the bass makes a pretty fine weapon, better be on my side and team up against someone else -what about that cheeky scamp Martin -he's far too young and good looking for his age -we could slightly weather him a bit - it's all for his own good in the long run.

18. Would you be prepared to play your debut gig with us after only ONE three hour rehersal? Do you think you'd be any good? Yes I would probably be amazing to watch -dunno if it would sound good as I only ever play along to stuff on MTV.

But 3 hours is long enough to drink and smoke you dry, chat about drums for 10 minutes and show you some karate moves .

19. Are you a smoker? Yes but nae smack or PCP or crack unless the dope and booze run oot

20. Are you a drinker? Ha ha ha - you tell me, I have to go on Craig watch to see where I've been.

4. Date Of Birth? 4/3/83

5. City Of Residence? Aberdeen

6. Your preferred music sub-genre (five words maximum)? Hardcore punk

7. Do you currently own a bass guitar? Do you intend to buy one? Not really. Although I'll buy Martin's off him if he doesn't need it.

8. Do you currently own a bass amp? Do you intend to buy one? Nope. Do you have any idea how much those things cost? I bet people who have said "No but I'll get one if I get the job" are lying through their teeth.

9. Are you currently a member of any other musical ensemble? Please give details, including level of commitment to them and applicable websites: Radio Lucifer (www.myspace.com/radiolucifer) and I was until recently, in Today We Fight! (www.myspace.com/todaywefight). I am committed to everything I do! There'd be no point in doing it otherwise. Oh and I'm in Deadloss for the moment too.

10. Do you have any previous bass playing experience (please note, this is not necessarily a requisite)? Please give details: Been playing bass in Deadloss for the past 4 years. How could you forget? I also played bass in Today We Fight! and a long time ago I played bass in the nu-metal beat combo Red By Choice. The less said about that the better though.

17. Additional information to support your application (e.g. quality of your rock shapes, ability to take a kicking on stage, ownership of massive van, close relationship with record label MD, et cetera): My stage moves are erratic and slightly dangerous if the stage is quite small. As for my ability to take a kicking, I don't think I really need to go into detail. Deadloss have made sure my knees, back and, rather worringly, my testicles will never quite be the same.

18. Would you be prepared to play your debut gig with us after only ONE three hour rehersal? Do you think you'd be any good? Yes and yes.

Rock shapes can be seen sans bass every Friday in Moshulu, branded a "wanker magnet" (although this may have been partly resolved as of late) recently and so should be uesd to taking a kicking, my flatmate and close personal friend Maxi can ferry me about in his van for pakora sauce-related fun (;)) and apparently I make all the other band members seem better looking. Cheek.

18. Would you be prepared to play your debut gig with us after only ONE three hour rehersal? Do you think you'd be any good?

Yesh and I imagine I'd keep up the high standard of Deadloss action that the public expects. Take that as you will.

Speaking about applying for stupid jobs...the plot thickens...

I would like to apply for the position of Jonny A Go Go if he gets the job as bassist.

Deadloss will be far too busy with touring and shit for Chris to be in two places at once so I'll hae a go at Being Hugh Bruise etc if there is a market for itTheghostofGoGofuturejpgthenooocheye.JPG
