I don’t care if people think it makes you smell like a Grandad, this is by far my favourite scent to wear. And as such I will never wear it again most likely. Reason being that scent is the most powerful sense for triggering memories, and even a faint whiff of Brut sends this sentimental creature into such a reverie that I don’t want to dilute that. I have been searching for a replacement for the last few years and haven’t come upon one yet. Old Spice classic comes close, and they have a new one called Old Spice Noir, but I don’t love them as much.
2. Tab Clear
The greatest drink of all time. Discontinued after only a couple of years at the start of the 90′s. Me and my brothers used to live off this stuff when we were kids. I recently became quite obsessed with trying to track down a can of it, and couldn’t rest until I finally did. I wish they would bring it back.
1. Korg M1
Terribly out of date and unfashionable, the M1 was the most common synth ever in the 80s and early 90s, and hasnt aged well – but for some reason I just love them. I was determined to get some M1 on our new record somewhere, and finally pulled it off in ‘Confident Men’…and it sounded amazing to my ears. Not sure what Dave Fridmann (producer) thought though…
