CATS I KNOW: NIC WILSON.

September 26, 2012

Nic Wilson is one of my favourite people. By day he is the lead guitarist in indie-rock band British India, by night he moonlights as an aspiring filmmaker. Actually, he technically plays music by night and makes films by day… but you geddit. He is the type of person who is always reading something cooler than you – except once, when he was reading “Fev” – and he is such an excellent musician that it kind of makes me want to give up. Somewhere between all that (if you want to be precise, I believe it was between Perth and Scarborough), he has the time to fill in questionnaires I write, 99% for my own amusement. And don’t I just love to ask the big questions. This is super hard-hitting – you’ve been warned.

RE: Fill in the blanks

Hello, my name is NIC WILSON. I am a SAINTS FAN from WAY BACK.

You might know me from MY BAND, BRITISH INDIA or maybe even YOUR NIGHTMARES.

In my spare time I enjoy WATCHING FILMS VARYING FROM MEDIOCRE TO AWFUL, however I can often be found doing AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE as well.

I am notorious for BEING SHY and a hidden talent I have is UNTYING KNOTS.

SILENT BOB is how some people describe me, but I would tell them to GO F%^&* THEMSELVES.

My favourite moment this year was when “SURVIVOR” STARTED AGAIN.

SAX SOLO’S are something that generally piss me off but I do get a fuzzy feeling when I see BEAGLES AT THE AIRPORT.

WERNER HERZOG is my lifelong hero. If we met, I would ask him about ADOPTING ME.

I feel like “JACKANINNY” is a word that doesn’t get used often enough.

The best advice I have ever been given is “NO ONE REALLY KNOWS WHAT ‘GOOD’ IS, SO ALWAYS GO IN WITH NO CHINKS IN THE ARMOUR AND MAKE THEM BELIEVE IT’S GOOD…” – GEORGE YOUNG.

The song I am most proud of writing is “NOWHERE BOYS” and my favourite one to play live is “BLACK & WHITE RADIO” AS IT HERALDS THE END OF THE SET.

My favourite YouTube video is “GIRL WITH A LEEK” – PERHAPS NOT MY FAVOURITE, BUT GETS OVER THE LINE FOR SHEER VOLUME OF PLAYS.

NOODLE KINGDOM is overrated.

I would like to shamelessly self-promote MY PRODUCTION COMPANY, “CAREFUL STRANGER(S)”. You can find out more about it here.
