After touring with Beach Baby and Palace, Willie J Healey’s Sideshow Bob barnet and slacker attitude has become a familiar sight across the UK.

New single ‘Lazy Shade of Pink’, which you can listen to below, is the latest in a line of lovable tunes from Healey, so we decided it was about time to ask him a familiar series of short questions, with no follow up questions. Even though we have so many follow up questions. Like how have you never had a job?! We’re jealous.
