Andy B and The World releases ‘The First One’ a MASSIVE 172 artist collab album for charity on January 17th, 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?
When it’s not musical instruments that I most likely don’t need, it’s cars, and old cars at that – I’ve been obsessed with aspiring to own a ‘65 or ‘66 Ford Mustang hardtop for more years than I can remember – sadly, the longer I obsess the higher in price they go!!
GREED: What should you be cutting down on, and why?
Coffee, 100% – I’ve got a thing for those “Littles” flavour-infused instant coffees, and it’s got to the point where I’ll walk to the kitchen, especially being at home in the studio all day, put the kettle on and start making one without even realising it – that can’t be good ay?
GLUTTONY: What one thing could you happily consume limitless amounts of, and why?
Oh my god, that coffee is going to crop up multiple times haha – Na, anything with cinnamon in it I’m a sucker for. I literally put it in coffee.
SLOTH: Stop being so lazy! What is the thing you should be putting more effort in to at the moment, and why?
Heyyyyy, how’d you know?! Actually, really boringly, I’ve been putting some work into getting in shape as of the last few weeks, as sitting down pretty much for 3 months straight mixed with the above unfortunate coffee, er, issue, had the effect you’d imagine – so that really! I’d like to put more effort into catching up with friends more too, by text or zoom or however, the album process was pretty involved and I’m a bit out of the loop.
WRATH: Who or what grinds your gears, and why?
I honestly try to not hate anything without reason, but let’s be honest, Covid – Coronavirus is grinding my gears, that’s for sure, as it’s ground all of us to a halt! Watching our industry on it’s knees has been super sad.
ENVY: Who are you jealous of, and why?
Anyone that’s able to not overthink, and sign off on something they’ve worked on, in all honesty – I’m a massive overthinker, and closing projects like the collab album are hard – some people struggle to be impressed by their own work, and I’m one of those – Don’t get me wrong, I’m MEGA proud of the album, really really, but having mixed it myself, I’ll always worry about what could have been done better on that front! I guess on the flip side these things mean we always seek to never stop learning..
PRIDE: Answers on a boast card! What is your proudest achievement?
This bloody album!! 172 Musicians on one album, done completely DIY – beyond stoked!
