Chris BiggsROLE AT BRIGHTON NOISE: Punk/hardcore/emo gig reviews.

FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT LIVING IN BRIGHTON: Having decent venues 5-10 minutes away from my house. Having decent places to eat 5-10 minutes away from my house. The fact it means I live in neither London nor Didcot anymore.

FAVOURITE LOCAL VENUE: The Haunt for bigger bands, Volks for DJs. Green Door Store, Sticky Mike’s and Fitzherbert’s are all good for smaller bands.

BEST PRE-GIG DRINKING HOLE: My house in the winter, Pavillion Gardens in the summer, outside the venue. Pubs are for people with money.

FIRST EVER GIG: AC/DC at Milton Keynes bowl, 2001. My dad took me because The Offspring were supporting and he’s a bigger fan of them than even I am. Megadeth and Queens Of The Stone Age also played.

BEST RECENT GIG: FIDLAR at The Haunt

TOP 3 BANDS/MUSICIANS: Impossible to pick. Limewax would definitely be up there though. My favourite song is Lou Reed’s ‘Perfect Day’.

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: The Movielife, Wavves, Adventures, Divorce, Ceremony, Nately’s Whore’s Kid Sister, Dads, Kids Like Us, The Story So Far, Pissed Jeans, Bear Trap, Algernon Cadwallader, Big Ups, Slaves, The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, Grappler, Disembarked. I work in a stockroom and get to play my music all day so I get through a lot!

 

RECOMMENDED BRIGHTON BANDS: Gnarwolves, River Jumpers, Sea Bastard, Broker, Sealings, I Like The Go Go.
