WHO Nottingham-based Welsh singer/songwriter Matthew Jay.
WHEN Thursday, 4 pm.
WHERE College at Clinton.
CLOTHES Im in a position where I dont need to wear any particular thing unless I want to, so when I go shopping I dont have any preconceptions. This T-shirt is designed by friends of mine in Nottingham: the company is called Purple Om (email@example.com), after a famous acid tab. My dad bought these trousers at Marks and Spencer when he was 30. Theyre a bit big, so I wear them with a brown leather belt I bought at Portobello Road market in London. My Clarks shoes (available in Toronto at Get Out Side, 437 Queen West, 416-593-5598) are brown leather, too Im not a black leather kind of guy. They dont need polishing and theyre very comfy.
HAIR Ive had a bit of trouble with hairdressers, so a girl at the record label in England told me about a guy named Dominic. Hes good.
STYLE In between a hippie and a mod. Moddie?
INTO Ive been reading about the Dalai Lama and Buddhism, and getting into hiphop as well. My album, Draw, is coming June 26 in Canada, and Im opening for the Doves at the Guvernment July 3.
