Dylan Moran

Dylan is very ambiguous about details of his life which makes interviews with journalists a hard task. His PR says, "Dylan's shy, he doesn't like talking to journalists".
In one interview he questioned, "Why is there all the fuss about what i'm up to?" Dylan was born in 1971 in County Meath, Navan, Ireland. He left school at 16 with no qualifications and apparently spent 4 jobless years 'drinking and writing bad poetry'. He once worked as a florist for a week but hated it. He is not very tall.

Jim O'Rourke

American indie rock and avant-garde musician, composer and producer Jim O'Rourke has been a key component in the increasing overlap of the American and European music , working in everything from and to and and building many a bridge in between. A Chicago native, his work has found equal luck with experimental jazz and fanatics, room denizens, and bedroom experimentalists, and has had the resultant effect of cross-pollinating many otherwise isolated compositional communities.

He was born in Geneva, the tenth and last child of Charles Martin, a pastor. Before he started school, he was already playing the piano and improvising. At nine, he was composing complete, fully formed songs, without having had any instruction in song forms or harmony.
