AG Williams AKA The Prosaics new single ‘Frown’ is out now, so we took the chance to ask him what his answers to these sins would be…
LUST: Who or what do you find yourself lusting after currently, and why?
I am lusting for the salty-sweet taste of the tears of singer-songwriters everywhere, from when they read about me roasting them at every occasion in interviews.
GREED: What should you be cutting down on, and why?
Synthesisers. No actually scratch that, it is unhealthy and self-destructive at this point, but anybody reading this SEND ME WHATEVER YOU HAVE- old charity shop Casios, broken second hand Yamahas, those odd Soviet fan organs you see all over Ebay… I need my fix!
GLUTTONY: What one thing could you happily consume limitless amounts of, and why?
Tea… I am afraid I really am that cripplingly English.
SLOTH: Stop being so lazy! What is the thing you should be putting more effort in to at the moment, and why?
How little you know me, template generated, internet interview question! I never stop. Always plugging! (psst check out the new single at www.theprosaics.co.uk) it’s really good stuff- Morrissey-esque lyrics,
Gorillaz-esque synth-pop with a Nick Cavey vocal rolled into one. You’ll love it.
WRATH: Who or what grinds your gears, and why?
SINGER SONGWRITERS! Ugh they’re just so dull …and repetitive…
ENVY: Who are you jealous of, and why?
The guy who invented Timpsons. You know the shoe repair and key manufacturing company? Lucky sod, managing to successfully and completely unnecessarily combine two entirely independent services and build a franchise. And so far as I’ve heard, they are a reputable company with as much of a moral compass as any capitalistic thriving chain-store business. They’re not funding terrorism or drilling for oil in aborigini land or using elicit offshore bank accounts… I don’t work for them, I’m just saying, it’s worth thinking about… setting up a company THAT unlikely and getting THAT successful and with no obvious funny business? None? Maybe they’re just fitting Al-Qaeda’s with new soles and locks on the side. That’s probably it.
PRIDE: Answers on a boast card! What is your proudest achievement?
Making it through this interview! Especially that last question… had me rambling there for a minute. Thanks for having me,
