Trivia:

Has appeared in several rock promos: "Hometown Unicorn" and "God Show Me Magic" by the Super Furry Animals (both 1996), "Mulder and Scully" by Catatonia (1998), "Mama Told Me Not To Come" by Tom Jones and the Stereophonics (2000), and "The Importance of Being Idle" by Oasis (2005). See more »
