Artists I’ve seen live

Actually none of these!

Favourite track on the list

Going to say State of the Union - banger!

Least favourite track on the list

Tentatively saying Ask because Morrissey.

Some absolute blasts from the past here: Beastie Boys takes me back to my local rock club in the 90s, Kompressor to an industrial night I frequented back when I wore New Rocks every day.

I'm a big fan of Poppy's new left-field take on metal. It feels very fresh and current and catch as all fuck.

I got into a bad habit at an old job of listening to Rise Against whenever I was in a crappy mood. Which turned into listening to Rise Against all day every day until I realised I needed to find a new job. So, er thanks, I guess!

You can find the playlist here on YouTube Music.

Get involved yourself!



In almost all cases, the comments section is a vile cesspool of Reply Guys, racists, and bots.

I don't want to have to deal with that kind of hell so I don't have a comments section.
