That's one of eight simple but revealing questions we've been putting to new bands and musicians from Teesside and County Durham.

The idea is to get straight to the heart of what their music is about - so you can decide whether or not it might be for you.

From where they find their inspiration to which of their song they think you should listen to first.

Middlesbrough band, The Master Colony have recently been signed to independent Wiltshire label 208 records.

You'll like us if you listen to...
