Profile

Working as the editor for allgigs.co.uk sees the majority of my waking hours taken-up editing and selecting news items, writing the odd news article and (where sleep is no longer required) going to a gig and writing a review-or-two. Whilst I may not have the widest-ranging taste (see some of my faves over there, on the right), we are blessed with a writing team with a diverse taste in music as well as other events, helping us to provide a nice selection of news articles and reviews to the general public.
