I like punk, ska, oi, old school punk, punk rock, ska-punk, rockabilly, psychobilly, horror punk, a bit o'swing and pretty much all variations of this, except I'm not too much of a hardcore fan - although I do like 'The Exploited'. To list other bands would be mad as there are just too many, but I'll try to stick a few down....

I like piercings and tattoos and have plans for several more in the next few years - money permitting of course - which it never actually seems to do.
Mostly my money seems to go on travelling lately. I've covered startling areas of Eastern Europe in the last year, and am moving on to the Balkans and the Baltic, shortly followed by Scandinavia. It is my mission to have visited each country in Europe before the start of 2011. God only knows if money will continue to allow this.
