Interview with Bloodlights

The first song I can remember …
Captain Poon: Hm, a little hard to say, it might have been „Killing an Arab“ by the Cure. My big sister was way into them and I was pretty fascinated too.

The first song I have bought …
Captain Poon: I can only remember my first record which was the Paul Stanley solo album, at the age of six. That being said, I had a few years of god knows what bands passing through my record player, before I discovered rock´n´roll for real that the age of 12.

The first song I could play on an instrument …
Captain Poon: „Tom Dooley“ or „Knocking on Heavens door“

The first song I wrote …
Captain Poon: I had a rock´n´roll band in high school named Riff Raff, we were obsessed with AC/DC, so I remember I did my best to write tunes that sounded just like them. Of course they weren´t anywhere near AC/DC but a song I wrote called „Rip it Up“, I still remember as a proud moment in early songwriting.

The first song I performed live …
Captain Poon: „Running Free“ Iron Maiden

The song to my first kiss …
Captain Poon: Ha,ha,“Black Velvet“, Allanah Myles is at least one I remember.

The first song on the mixtape for her/him …
Captain Poon: To the one I kissed? No idea, maybe something by Falco, haha.

The song to my „First Time“ …
Captain Poon: I`m not sure if there was any music to accompany this, but the first girl I had sex with she played the record „Hold Me Up“ by Goo Goo Dolls over and over again. So my bet will be a song from that one.

The first song that made me cry
Captain Poon: I didn´t cry that easy from songs when I was younger, it´s more of that now. Maybe „A Little Bag of Gloom“ by Monster Magnet.

The first song I downloaded from the internet …
Captain Poon: Never did much of that, but I do remember I downloaded the song „Psycho Circus“ by Kiss at some point.

The first song I listened to in my first car …
Captain Poon: „Locomotive“ Motörhead

The first song I would ban from the radio …
Captain Poon: „What´s up“ 4Non Blondes

And the last song …
Captain Poon: „Dancing on the Ceiling“ Lionel Ritchie
