Mystery-Jets-April-2008-3So strictly speaking this is not exactly an interview, infact it is not exactly anything. Prior to the ‘Young Love’ success the Mystery Jets played at Bar42, my old Uni bar in a very rough part of Birmingham- think the SU bar in Hollyoaks if the cast had all had terrible facial accidents that week.

After the performance I asked Kai what he’s favourite Britney Spears’ song was. He struggled with the answer and finally came out with this: “Baby one more time?”.

Wrong Answer Kai. I was leaning towards at least Toxic, granted Britney Spears might not be your cup of tea but if you are in the world of music you should at least muster “A Slave for You”. Can we also bear in mind that this conversation took place about a year ago- a year ago Britney had launced Blackout and was in and out of the papers with her dramatic rise and fall.

I simply cannot respect a man who’s favourite Britney Spears’ song is Baby One More Time. Men of the UK please remember this.
