Drama Parlour’s Music To Cut Hair To #18


Dave Harvey

I LOVE THIS MAN. (Just stating the obvious.)

Now it’s his turn this week for the Ransom Note v Drama Parlour. Funny how life turns out as not only has he done this, he also happens to be putting on Love Saves The Day in Bristol amongst MANY other things he has going on the summer – Love International and Glastonbury to name just the biggies.

We were introduced by Tom and Bonar from PBR. They said we’d get on. Well not half. One of my fav memories was him picking up off the floor in the BooDior at SGP and telling me I hadn’t had enough water. We were 3 days deep. I could go on and on.

Dave Harvey. You. Are. The. MAN. <3

When were you at your happiest?

That’s a tough one Drama! My wedding last summer in Croatia pips it, huge team and getting married to my wonderful wife surrounded by a large portion of our nearest and dearest, on the beautiful Garden site in Tisno – in fact that would be closely followed by any one of the wonderful Garden festivals over the years, magic.

What’s your greatest fear?

Everything ending at the wrong moment.

Who do you admire?

I’ve always thought Rob Star was a pretty admirable character but sometimes I think he’s too good to be true…

What trait do you deplore in yourself / other people?

Laziness and a terrible attention span in me / disloyalty or two-faced behaviour in others.

What’s your worst habit?

What were we talking about again… oh and being a stressy mardy little fucker as well.

Favourite word? 


Who would you like to say sorry to?

There’s been many people I’ve been mean to over the years, all the ones that didn’t actually deserve it – sorry 🙁

Who do you despise?

I don’t wanna be too negative but all the politicians with no care for the consequences of their – at best – narrow mindedness, and – at worst – total disregard for anyone not in the same situation as them, they need serious words with themselves.

Who or what is the love of your life?

My lovely wife Kamaleeka.

What would improve your life?

Loads of dough for nothing would be great but to be honest my life’s pretty good right now – so can I just get a continuance of this please, with a healthy pay rise every year – and world peace obvs.

What’s your greatest achievement?

Faber & Faber Short Story winner in the '80s.

What keeps you awake at night?

All the bloody things I was meant to do that day, why do I only remember once lying down when the lights are off?

How would you like to be remembered?

If I cark it early – well I’m nearly 40 so not that early – but anyway, I want a massive party please, fun times and lots of smiling, you’ve heard me say this now so it’s essential that it happens right?

What lessons has life taught you?

Generally everything turns out alright – I’ve had a few moments where I really have thought, that’s it I’m done for, there’s no coming back from this – and it’s always been alright. That and try and be nice to people, even when they are behaving like twerps… oh and that there’s always someone worse off than you.

What would your super power be?

Being able to tell if I actually need to worry about things – that and talking a lot with very few gaps in the pub.

Favourite smell?

Oooh – possibly Molecule Number 1, lovely stuff!

Who would play you in a film?

The way my hair's going on a windy day I’d have to say Jack Nicholson.

Tell us a secret?

I was a Faber & Faber Short Story winner in the '80s.

Upcoming BIG tings?

Love International 1st year in Croatia, June. Massive Attack in Bristol, September. Team Love coming to your eyes, ears and feet soon.
