Lewis has written a piece about his home studio for ClashMusic.com:
‘When I was a kid, like most boys, I was into making swords, guns and pretending I was peter pan. After that stage, I was interested in phonograph records. At home, we never had a CD player, we had a turntable and a cassette deck so seeing records as kid was the norm and seeing them being played was normal. I think this is the reason we (my family) refer to disks as ‘records’ and not ‘vinyl’s’. The first time I saw records in a different light was when I saw my granddad winding up his gramophone and putting a record on. The thing that got me interested in it was the technical aspect, how and why did this work? It was not the case of “trendy student writes stuff on a typewriter to be cool and funky” (because 10 year olds don’t think that way) and all that, it was a case of fascination with the technology…’ CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE

Lewis was asked by FACT Magazine to write about 5 records of his choosing, as he explains here…
When asked by music journalists, “What is your favourite record” or, “Who is your favourite artist”, I find myself left quite speechless. This is partly because I know that they are looking for one name to write down. And also because I have no favourite artist or record. Of the millions of disks manufactured worldwide, there is no one favourite record. Sometimes, I get home and am in the mood for a Norman Granz Jazz At The Philharmonic Concert. Another time I am not in that frame of mind, and will put on a jug band record.
So, in order to write this, I have gone to my record collection and at random, blindfolded, picked out five records. My records are not in any particular order anymore as they have all got shuffled around from them not getting put back in the right places and coming home after a few too many and pulling them out and forgetting where they came from. This method will also give a good varied selection of what is in my collection. As I am currently writing this travelling in a transit van on tour, I have no access to my books, papers, label discography’s etc… so, I will try to provide as much as I can remember about which ever record it is. Please forgive any mistakes!
We popped round the Guardian a few weeks back to talk about the next single Messing With My Life…
