At any one time I can normally be found either at a gig, talking about going to a gig, frantically searching for gigs to go to, or creating my own gig in my front room complete with air guitar and remote control used as a microphone!
I was raised on rock, and heavy metal but as I grew up I started to acquire a taste for punk rock, and all its derivatives including pop punk, ska punk, thrash punk, and yes, emo (I’m not afraid to admit it). I’m also partial to a bit of grunge, reggae, motown, hip hop, electro, 80s & 90s pop and anything else with a decent rhythm so I guess you could say I’m a Jack of all trades when it comes to music genres.
