As for myself, I have no history of writing as you’ll probably be able to tell if you’ve just read something. What I do have though is a love of music and a love of telling people what I like. Whether they want to hear it or not. You can find me writing for a couple of other places as well. Namely The 405, Sabotage Times and Freedom Spark. I also make an awesome chilli (recipe).
Before you start reading the thrilling history, you can also follow me on Twitter if you like. @sockformation
