Profile: My enthusiasm for sharing new music and an interest in descriptive writing has led me here. I've always admired Manchester for having great and varied venues, which are full of 'up-for-it' music fans, who create a great atmosphere. I moved to Manchester from Sussex in 1998 to attend the School of Sound Recording. After graduating, I decided to stay up north partly because of the buzzing music scene. I've been through a lot of different music phases since being a 90's teen, from rock and pop and grunge to most types of dance music, drum and bass, nu jazz, hip hop, soul, dubstep, blues and folk. My Last.FM page: http://www.last.fm/user/StuntMonkey13 I started writing gig reviews for fun in the days of Myspace and then I bumped into Simon (the editor). I'm a big fan of Piccadilly Records and BBC 6 music and prefer smaller gigs that feature fresh, up and coming bands.
