Monster Restaurant Manager and the nicest wine gangsta you’ll ever meet
: If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be? And why?
Tal Thorne: The world needs more MUSIC!!!!
: Skateboarding or surfing?
TT: Seeing as I was bought up in Cronulla you would think I could surf, but I can’t. Id say Skateboarding but due to my poor coordination skills I really do sux at both.
: A single fashion item you can’t live without?
TT: My caps! Every moment I’m away from work I have it on, if the hotel would let me I’d probably wear it at work. My family were hoping id grow out of wearing them but its been something I have always worn my whole life.
: Best bottle of wine you’ve ever had? What occasion and where?
TT: First taste of 2002 Raveneau Chablis (was one of those wines that change your whole life) was here at Monster Kitchen and Bar while working but it was very special and stay with me forever. Otherwise necking a bottle of Bollinger at Cronulla Station on boxing day night after a big day was kind of cool (there are photos somewhere).
: Best hip hop gig you’ve ever been to?
TT: There is a couple but last month I saw Common and Talib Kweli at the Enmore theatre in Sydney. That was pretty special.
: Any claims to fame?
TT: Once was on crappy morning TV show talking about martinis. It seems to be played on repeat a lot as I have come home drunk late at night and seen myself back on TV. Also tripped over live on TV once again it’s the coordination thing.
: What would your gangsta name be?
: Favourite drop of whisky/whiskey?
TT: Michel Couvreur Candid PX Cask (Get it at Monster)
: Ultimate holiday destination?
TT: So many places around the word Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal, Hungry etc but honestly nothing bets the south coast of NSW.
: Next live concert you’re going to?
TT: KAYTRANADA (if I can get the time off work).
