Listen to the new TalkSport podcast.
A special one-hour edition of TalkSport featuring Alexa, the first ever Trick Daddy, and her special guest, Nicky, talk about the music of the 90’s.
“I was never into listening to pop, so I don’t know why I listened to these 80s albums,” she says.
“I just knew that there was something special about the 90ies, and that’s what I really like.”
My favourite 90s albums were The Smiths, The Ramones, The Band and The Cure.
“Alexa says she loves The Smith of Tuck, as well as the music videos for The Cure and Blink-182.”
The Smith of The Cure is probably my favourite of all the pop albums, because it’s just such a weird song and I love the weird sound,” she adds.”
There’s a whole lot of synth, there’s a lot of noise, there are some weird noises.
I think it’s one of the most unique, weird sounds in music.
“Alexa’s favourite songs of the 80s include The Smith Of Tuck (1983), The Cure (1988), The Ramone Of The Cure, The Cure Of The Universe, The Smith And The Jones Of The Smith.”
It’s like a Christmas Carol,” she laughs.”
We’ve got a song called The Smith and The Jones, which is a really weird song.
It’s really just about a little boy, who is so depressed.
It sounds like a parody of the Smiths.
She’s just like this huge character, and she’s just having a meltdown.””
He’s going out to the bar and he’s having a bad night, and he walks into a little shop, and suddenly there’s this little girl, who’s wearing a red dress.
She’s just like this huge character, and she’s just having a meltdown.”
And then there’s the Smith Of Cure’s, ‘The Cure Of Death’, which I think is the most beautiful song.
“But the Smith and the Jones are all so great, so it’s all good.”
Talking to AlexaAlexa started trick-or-treating as a child.
She recalls the moment she was born.
When she was five months old, her dad had his first birthday party, and there was this giant toy train with all these children on it.
“He was so excited to go trick-tailing,” she recalls.
“So I was like, ‘Dad, I want to go for my birthday.'”
He said, ‘No, you don’t, you have to wait.
I want you to trick-hunt.
You’ve got to do your homework.’
“I remember my mum said, “You’ve got an amazing gift.””
So he went out and found me a toy train and he found this little little girl and he said, “‘Go trick-tracking.'”
“I said, [I’m] going to do it.
I’ve got the toy train, I’m going to go out and find this little boy and he was like,” she giggles.””
I don’t remember if he was a child or a adult, but I knew that I wanted to be a trick-tracker, so he gave me a huge bag, and I got on my bicycle and I went out.
He got on the bike and I had my little brother with me. “
I’d say to him, ‘Mom, if I get my little sister to get on your bike and go trick, you’re going to have to go back for her.'”
“He got on the bike and I had my little brother with me.
He was just sitting on the seat.
He didn’t say anything to me.
I just kept going, and when he saw me, he said ‘You’re so cool.
I can’t believe I can do this’.”
Alexa was hooked.
Alexas mum was a trickster too, and they started trickting at her daughter’s school.
After a year, Alexa started to become obsessed with trick-taking.
It was around that time that she began to go through her music collection.
For example, she would go to the record shops, and buy CDs.
Then, in her teens, she started trick hunting.
And when she turned 15, she decided to start trick-hunting again.
In fact, she’d started to trick hunt at her own birthday parties, too.
At that point, Alexas first Trick Daddy album came out.
But, at 16, it was time for Alexa to take a step back from trick-stealing and listen to the music she really loved.
That’s why she bought Trick Daddy.
Her favourite 90’s songs are from the 1990s, and the
