Jonny Short is one of my very favourite musicians. We've been working together since the Waking the Witch days and if you ever need a bassist, call him immediately. Well I was looking for a cellist for the new album sessions and Jonny popped up shouting "me, me, me" - turns out he studied cello, which was always his first love, and so after a quickly arranged "200,000 mile cello services & oil change" he came in the studio today and did the most beautiful things with it. All in a day's work for one of Sheffield's finest, who then confessed he even played cello on Pulp's debut album. What a guy!
