Introduction Hi! Thanks for reading my profile, I've tried keeping things brief favourites wise so you're getting a shortlist every time. Music is what keeps me going besides family support, and it's a great thing there are so many people united in their thinking and tastes on the Subvert Central forum. So I set up this blog as an extension of my unofficial SC zine efforts in 2009, and since that (mentioned in SubVersion blog one) project, SV has maintained itself almost subconsciously. Please feel free to contact me by email with any music you think I might be interested in! I'm available for article writing and co-operation in various forms, having work published via Fluid Radio (93 reviews to date), Facture, Nightshift (Oxford's premier music monthly), Oxfordshire Music Scene, Blues In Britain, dogsonacid.com, Soundium.net, Kmag, ATM, hyponik and TDD, the SC zine. My profile photo, finally, if you were wondering, is me with Nanny from Count Duckula, who we always used to liken to my Nan who passed away in December 2007. The upload's in her memory. I hope you enjoy the blog!
Interests Music - all, dancing - when I'm excited gigging, animals - my folks' pet dogs, the arts - especially poetry, the outdoors - walking, restaurants - especially Indian and Chinese, pubs/clubs - quiet and traditional ones, reading - psychoanalysis and culture, organising - my laptop and workspace, internet forums - never wasting posts, seeing new cities - and eventually countries, science, and lots more with time hopefully. :)
