i've been properly rubbish on LJ!!! [29 Nov 2006|01:13pm]
[ mood | geeky ]

but now that's about to change.. decided to get things updated and sorted properly.
so.. what's been going on since i last posted properly?
well, a quick catch up reads like this.

i've been off work for a couple months (nobody knows that, so what an LJ exclusive that is), been playing plenty of gigs with my band reth (did a mini tour a couple weeks back as well), the raw nerve club has started up again at the lovely subculture venue, things still going well with the raw nerve site, me and sarah have had pretty bad debts and money problems during this year, but quite recently have managed to start getting on top of those and we are now doing our house up with the help of her dad and the lovely mr smiggy (cheers bud, can't wait for things to get rolling and all finished)...

i've been a bit of a myspace whore to be honest, i know i'll get booed for that on here, but i can't help it, and ended up devoting my online time to sorting out loads of accounts for the various things i'm involved with.. check em all out if you can be bothered, and if you are on there, would be great if you added them...
my own personal page
raw nerve zine
incandescence - my dark ambient/electro project that has 7 albums
cerebral constriction - my noise project that has 1 album with another on the way soon
raw nerve compilations - a new idea
raw nerve club page
eye of phetkanha - an old ambient project i was half of
reth - my grind/death/tech band

so now we're all caught up, i am gonna keep this place up to date with stupid rambles, rants, nonsense, pictures, fun, idiocy and probably stuff that will bore the panties off ye all!!

love you all.. hopefully you will all say hello! ;-)

club and tour.. oh aye! [06 Nov 2006|02:49pm]

WOW. an update, a proper update, and a proper post!!! like! WOW [07 Feb 2006|02:53pm]
well, i've finally got around to updated my main profile page on live journal, and getting a proper entry that isn't just a flyer or something cut and paste like that!!!!

where to start since the last time i was on here properly!?! erm!! blimey, well, my heart has beat roughly around 1,201,984 times (probably), i've drunk about 3,192 litres of liquid (give or take an 1/8th), listened to about 1284 albums/eps, and puuu'd about 405 times
the raw nerve club finished at the phono when it closed down, then moved to the bassment for a very successful christmas one and then THAT closed down, so we're homeless..
i've sold my 8 string bass (gutted, but had to be done) through skintnessand the need to pay back loans and stuff..
the flyering service of raw nerve is getting a lot stronger, obviously meaning more work to do on that and more late nights.. but worth it as it's keeping us afloat..
my band reth, who i joined in the summer are doing good, played some decent gigs, including the sell out one to 350 people supporting melt banana and khanate in november, and a gig in london with the red chord and mistress in front of 400 people.. ace!! no gigs for a while whilst writing new stuff and then back on the trail in march, watch out for dates i dare ya!!!
amongst other things.. dealing with major brain fry stress, hating my job and the boredom it incurs, being thankful for being able to listen to music whilst at work.. getting the house a bit more sorted, and condensing the boxes somewhat in the upstairs room, still plenty to empty and shelves to put up!!! it'll never end!
anyway, ramble over..
happy tuesday 7th february everyone...
now playing: godflesh - streetcleaner ('christbait rising' ooooooooofffffffff!!!!!!)

camcorder for sale, neat, good price... [03 Dec 2005|04:17pm]
I've got a sharp vl-z1h viewcam camcorder that i'm selling, hardly used (literally 2 or 3 times), comes in a neat zip up bag, has all the manuals and stuff, and has 3 tapes as well...

picture here

you can read some reviews about it:-

prices range from £250 to even up to £350 from what i've seen online...
looking for £180 ideally with all the extras (that would be for picking up in leeds) but am open to offers.. gonna leave this up until the middle of next week and then probably take it down to a second hand place or jessop's etc...

last minute alterations to tonight's gig.. [30 Apr 2005|01:59pm]
[ mood | rushed ]

isle of man (tour forced to be cancelled) and red stars parade (understandable circumstances) pulled out within this last week, so it's been a mad dash to find bands to replace them, and by the wonders of insanity, 100 texts in one day we now have humanfly and whores whores whores making it back up to 6 bands and still an incredible line up..

whores whores whores
spasticated razor masturbator

for anyone not sure, come along.. £6 ticket you can get from hellraiser, jumbo, crash, out of step up until about 5pm and then it is £8 on the door, goes on until 2am with the club after.. bargainous!!
see ya there!!

wooooooooooooooooooooo [12 Apr 2005|08:28pm]
[ mood | very very busy! ]

i return!!! oooof!!

just for a bit! heh..
am off work for all this week, i twisted my ankle on friday night and it's reet swollen, bit purple/black, hurts every so often, but i cannot put a sock or a shoe on now, which is CRAP, but it means i am at home for a bit and probably gonna pester lots of people and just wibble random shit loads for a bit!!!

so yeah,
it's all busy here,
me and sarah found a house, and currently in the throes of going through all the legal stuff, had all the surveys and stuff, there are a few things needing doing on it to make it right, but hopefully that will all be sorted in the next month or 2 and we start life in armley and only 20 minutes walk from town!! i can't wait!!
new band is getting things going pretty well, some decent riffage and songs coming together, still might be a while till ready, but it will be worth it!!
raw nerve is going top as well, hit meter is climbing and lots more people joining the madness of the forum, so all good! :-)
just generally starting to pull myself slowly (and very slowly at that), out of the limbo that has been life for a long while with stuff like work and career etc..

see how it goes anyway..

hope all you people are well and haven't forgotten who i am..

that should help you remember
