Just when you thought you knew everything about The Faith Healers’ intrepid front man Mark M, we pulled out all the stops and went all red top journalist with a “20 Things You Didn’t Know About…” quiz. The only difference being that we only asked 10 questions and we stole them from Inside the Actors Studio, who stole them from Bernard Pivot, who in turn stole it from Marcel Proust. There’s really no point reinventing the wheel.

  1. What is your favourite word?
    Bollocks!, because of its versatility. When said loudly it means “that’s rubbish”; quietly under the breath, quiet resignation or; to express something great as in “that’s the dogs …”
  2. What is your least favourite word?
    Avilable, avalibel – see why?
  3. What turns you on?
    The natural world, nature, birdsong. They always get my creative juices flowing.
  4. What turns you off?
    As I’m actually an artificial human created in the lab, I have a small button ant the base of the neck. I’m not telling you where the charging socket is.
  5. What is your favorite curse word?
    See Question 1.
  6. What sound or noise do you love?
  7. What sound or noise do you hate?
    Drilling, drills arrrgghhh!! Makes me feel physically sick.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
    Maybe something with animals. A Zookeeper?
  9. What profession would you not like to do?
    Anything that mean getting too close to people like a physiotherapist, barber or surgeon. Yuck!
  10. If God exists, what would you like to hear Her say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
    “I don’t believe it, you’re early! Come back in ten years.”
  11. Why music?
    When I saw a sixth-form band perform Seven by Seven and Silver Machine by Hawkwind, the school hall exploded. It was so powerful and energetic. I hadn’t realised at that age that normal people could do such things and thought, yeah, that’s what I want to do.
