Who are you and what’s your sound?
Nick Thayer. I play club music. Thizz Disco.
Congratulations on the new album ‘Just Let It Go’, how long did it take to complete?
Forever! Or at least it felt like forever. Depending on where you pick as the start point, let’s say a couple of years.
Melbourne or London?
What’s The Best Night Out You’ve ever Had?
The best night out I’ve ever had was watching my beautiful wife Juliet perform the lead role in the ‘Silver Rose’ ballet at opening night in Melbourne earlier this year. Magical. Plus I got to be arm candy at the opening night party later on.
What’s Your Favourite Club?
Revolver Upstairs in Melbourne. I’ve been a resident there for over ten years now, and there is no other club like it anywhere in the world.
What’s Your Favourite Record Of All-time?
My favourite club record today is probably The Chemical Brothers’ ‘Battle Weapon 3 (Under The Influence)’. But on any given day that could change to any other Chemical Brothers record really. My favourite record is Elbow’s ‘Cast Of Thousands’. I listen to that album a hell of a lot. Or Tom Waits’ ‘Mule Variations’. Or Queen’s ‘The Works’. I have a lot of favourite records.
What Record Can’t You Stand?
Any cynically manufactured pop. Idol / X-Factor etc I’m looking in your direction.
What Was The Last Record You Bought?
Nas – Illmatic Anniversary edition.
Name Three Of Your Biggest Influences…..
DJ Ransom, The Chemical Brothers, A Skillz.
Which actors would play you in ‘Nick Thayer The Movie’?
I’d like to say Ed Norton, but it would probably be more like some B-Grade dude who you vaguely remember from some teen flick ten years ago.
What’s Your Dream?
To make a living from making music. Living the dream baby!
How Do You Escape?
Sunday afternoons at our local with the very best company.
What Is Your Favourite Possession?
My personally signed copy of Beastie Boys’ ‘License To Ill’.
What Is Your Life Philosophy?
Whatever you do, do it with passion and purpose.
What’s In Your Pockets?
A flash drive and a bunch of lint.
If You Were An Animal, What Animal and Why?
A rabbit I think. They are pretty awesome.
You Are Having A Party, Whom Dead Or Alive Is On The Guest List?
How many people!? What kind of party!? I actually have two lists – one of people I’d invite to a dinner party (Sir David Attenborough / Stephen Fry / Brian May / Bill Bailey / Ed Norton / John Lennon / Tim Burton & Danny Elfman) and one of people I would like to go drinking with (David Lee Roth / Slash / Dylan Moran / Hunter S Thomson / Freddie Mercury / Keith Richards / Johnny Depp)
When Was The Last Time You Embarrassed Yourself?
I’m terrible at remembering people’s names. Something around that I suspect.
