Alasdair McClintock has lived in Bronte for just over three years after moving here from Brisbane. He spends his
working week burning toast at Jed’s Food Store in Bondi. Alasdair shares his local faves with The Beast…

Favourite Beach: Has to be Bronte although Bondi has its charms when it’s winter and no one’s around.

Eatery: I am stupidly addicted to the vegie burgers from Out of the Blue in Clovelly. I’m thinking of attending meetings to kick the habit.

Watering Hole: The Beach Road probably, due to the quality of the bands they get there.

Sporting Team: I wanted to be a Wallaby – I wasn’t good enough. Would have settled for the Newcastle Knights or Essendon Bombers, but they had no room for a skinny, slow bloke either.

Music: I’m currently wearing out the tracking on the new Taking Back Sunday, but like a bit of Bloc Party, Interpol, Urthboy, Sublime… the usual indie stuff.

Person: Hunter S. Thompson (which is no doubt a great concern to my mother).

Weekend Activity: If I’m not working or rehearsing, I’m relaxing with my beautiful girlfriend at the beach and falling off my surfboard.

Quote: “You better take care of me Lord, if you don’t you’re gonna have me on your hands.” Or “I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes.”

Favourite Thing About Your Work: The friends I’ve made since working there and the regulars.

Final Word: I play in a band called This Dancefloor! and we are all types of awesome! You can find us on Facebook or at
