TOM WAITS ”Tango Till They’re Sore”
”He is my ultimate hero. I play very rudimentary piano, and there’s a couple little Tom Waits-ian numbers that I always repeat because, you know, I haven’t got any imagination. [Laughs]”

ELBOW ”Starlings”
”I always shove this song down people’s throats because I adore it so much, but I always have to warn them of this trumpet that blares in. It’s like a kid with a foghorn running into a flock of seagulls and watching them scatter.”

STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS ”Real Emotional Trash”
”This is one of those 10- or 11-minute-long songs that’s perfect for journeys to the grocery store. It goes from slow to pure wigging out.”

THE REAL TUESDAY WELD ”Bathtime in Clerkenwell”
”It’s this brilliant, hilarious track that sounds like a man singing underwater. When you listen to it, you just want to get in the bath. So it became a good way of getting the kids [son Billy, 11, and daughter Lilac, 10, from previous relationships] in. [Laughs]”
