2006 Year End Survey | Thomas Hughes of The Spinto Band

Not to be outdone by his younger brother, we received Thomas Hughes favorites of the year this afternoon.

I don't have much more to add about The Spintos from Sam's post yesterday. However, I will say that I had the chance to talk to Thomas earlier this year after their set in Montreal opening for Arctic Monkeys and he was a damn nice guy. Very kind and humble; particularly for someone with youth, talent, a killer album and a worldwide touring itinerary.

Trust me. If I had all of those things, I'd be completely insufferable.

1) What was your favorite song of 2006?

"Nervous Heartbeat" by Momus

2) What was your favorite album of 2006?

Half-handed Cloud - "Halos & Lassos"

3) What was your favorite concert of 2006?

Fuji Rock in Japan

4) What was your favorite thing about 2006?

I got a Banjolele for my birthday and it is my favorite instrument right now.

5) What are your best wishes for 2007?

I hope Louie Anderson makes it all the way though it.

Here's the Spintos video for their hit "Oh, Mandy" from Nice and Nicely Done
