I'm sure you've all had the dream, as you shout to make yourself heard over police sirens for the kids to get their shoes on, then dodge dog poo dashing them to school, before you're late to work because you got stuck in traffic/the train was late/tube was delayed.

Born and raised in Aberdeen, Morton taught himself to play his brother's guitar at the age of ten before playing in several hometown bands as a teenager, moving to London "dreaming of stardom and large recording contracts".

Vancouver's Billy The Kid (real name Billy Pettinger) lies somewhere between the street tough song writing of Loretta Lynn and the raw Grrl power of Kathleen Hanna, and her latest effort, Horseshoes & Hand grenades, is the perfect synthesis of American roots and punk scene spirit.

American potato chips ("crisps") are pathetic when compared with the flavours England has.

In the wise words of Frankie (Sinatra) New York is what I wanted to be a part of for a very long time. Why? Because at heart I am little bit of a hopeless romantic, wanna be fashionista and passionate foodie.

Whilst regular trips to the beach and lemonades down the pub were on my parents check list, so were some more unusual activities. You see, I come from Devon where pagan traditions are kept alive, and various festivals celebrating fertility, reproduction and nature are dotted across the calendar.
