The Feeling's Dan Gillespie Sells furnished his house through eBay - Metro.co.uk

Quick Read

The Feeling lead singer bought all the furniture for his east London terrace while his band was on the road (Picture: Getty) The frontman of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, has written the tunes for huge West End hit Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – recently turned into a stunning film starring Richard E.
Tell us about your first property It was a small but very cute 1980s-built terrace house in east London with two bedrooms, one bathroom, a tiny kitchen, a narrow garden and a driveway.
It was a new-build so the place was fervently fine but I decided to add a loft conversion so that there was a decent master bedroom and I could have a lodger in the second bedroom to help out.
We never knew how long the success of the band would last, so I wanted him there for a sense of security as much as anything else.
I furnished the whole place (via eBay) while I was away on tour.

The Feeling lead singer bought all the furniture for his east London terrace while his band was on the road (Picture: Getty) The frontman of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, has written the tunes for huge West End hit Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – recently turned into a stunning film starring Richard E. Grant. But you might not be aware that he is also a dab hand at DIY. As his fame rocketed in the noughties, Dan cultivated a neat little East End home as a perfect base to explore the thrills of London life. He spills all about it, and explains why eBay was a life-saver when it came to furnishings. Tell us about your first property It was a small but very cute 1980s-built terrace house in east London with two bedrooms, one bathroom, a tiny kitchen, a narrow garden and a driveway. It was also really quiet, even though it was just streets away from Brick Lane. I bought it in 2006 and it was a really buzzy and exciting place to live back then – the old Truman Brewery buildings were being used as clubs and pop-up theatres and vintage markets. It was painfully trendy but I was in my twenties and even though we were on tour most of the time, I loved it because there was so much arts and young culture to enjoy. There was also a lot of history as this was the area that Jack The Ripper terrorised. Was the place in good nick? It was a new-build so the place was fervently fine but I decided to add a loft conversion so that there was a decent master bedroom and I could have a lodger in the second bedroom to help out. We never knew how long the success of the band would last, so I wanted him there for a sense of security as much as anything else. Dan is thrilled to back on the road and connecting with fans (Picture: Kevin Winter/Getty Images) My dad is a builder and can pretty much fix anything so I’ve learned a million skills from him. I’ve always loved DIY and am pretty handy, though I have had my fair share of disasters, too. What was your interiors style? I furnished the whole place (via eBay) while I was away on tour. Everything was mid-century, which went with the modern style of the house. I basically came back from tour to piles of delivery boxes. I still have the G-Plan table I bought back then though in my current home in Hackney, just up the road. Home décor-wise, I don’t have a particular style myself but I like to honour the style of the building that I am decorating. It all depends on the bones of the house. My fave part of that first house was the garden because it was so rare to have outdoor space in Zone 1. Is it harder for young people to get on the ladder now? It is SO much harder. You probably don’t want me to get into a socio-economic rant about the nature of modern capitalism but it has become impossible for many to achieve what I did without almost totally being helped by parents. This creates even more of a divide in society between the haves and the have-nots. It’s very worrying. Is it good to be on stage again? Being on the road again is special. Though we love the creativity of being in the studio, it’s the direct connection with the audience that really matters. It makes sense of being in a band. And we still have a lot of fun together after over 20 years! Book to see The Feeling on tour through their website.
