ABOUT

I am thinking about getting back into a band I thought I would get in touch.

I am 48 and have been playing for a few years (decades) and my influences are quite varied. The most recent bands I have seen are Black Sabbath, The Stranglers, High on Fire, Mastodon, Morrissey, The Prodigy, Mogwai, Sleep, Trail of Dead, Slipknot, The Cure, LCD Soundsystem.

I have played in lots of different bands, from punk through to grunge and alternative, though the heavier the better these days. I lived in Perth and played pretty much every week for 4 years before coming to Sydney nearly three years ago. Although I have been involved in a live project nearly every year, I haven't been focused on something for a while. I have good gear and transport.
