    Richey Hackett: A lot of people who've found my music through LastFM have contacted me to ask about my influences. To be honest, everything that I listen to influences me in some way. I don't have a set list of artists that I consider the most appropriate or which give me credibility. Everything I listen to has an effect on the music that I make. But for the curious, here is a partial list of the music that I love and listen to on a regular basis:

    At The Drive-In
    The Beatles
    Ben Folds Five
