Started going to gigs just after the dinosaur became extinct. The first ones were at the old Top Rank watching bands during the punk years including The Ramones, The Clash & The Damned. Although living in Worthing attend around 50 gigs a year in Brighton. Started taking a camera with me soon after I saw The Joy Formidable for the first time. The best live band I have ever seen. Current favourites include Airship, Spotlight Kid, Bleech and It Hugs Back. If you see me down the front come and say Hi!
