Formative musical experience: I was in a store one day and there were two boomboxes on, both on different stations or had different CDs or were on different playlists or something. One was playing S Club 7, someone probably threw it on for a laugh. The other was playing 'Karma Police.' They were on at the same time and I just thought I was listening to some glorious out-of-time mashup of Radiohead and S Club 7 and I realised that was what I wanted my music to sound like.
Musical guilty pleasure: I bought a Wheatus CD for $5 last week cause Penny Lane was doing a big sale and it's legitimately the worst album I've heard in my life, and maybe this makes me a bad person but it's all I've been listening to for the past 5 days.
