I’m Fi, I did a degree in Music Business at ACM and I can play 7 instruments. My favourite band changes all the time but the best live band I have ever seen was Green Day in 2013 and I broke my rib in the mosh pit.
James Leese

I am James Leese, 20. In terms of music there are no bounds of what I won’t give a listen but outside of that, I am a big film lover and TV show binger alongside playing my own solo acoustic music.
Bradley Cassidy
Writer
I am a Metal fan but really take anything that involves talent and innovation away from the mainstream way of bands thinking. I am heavily into unsigned and independent music and will take suggestions for reviews. Bands I am into range from; The Exploited to Sunn O))) to Swallow The Sun to Evil Scarecrow.
Dan Cooper

32-year-old music dork. Plays and writes in bands in his spare time, as well as been a self-confessed WWE fanatic. Loves anything from the Black Metal to Alt Country. Play him a Gaslight Anthem song and all will be good with the world.
Ben Mills
Writer
Music Journalism Student based in Cardiff. Fairly broad taste, ranging from metal to indie rock with everything in between. If it chugs hard or makes me cry I’m probably down with it.
Jacob Granger
Writer
A Multimedia Journalism graduate. You’ll find me at your local shows watching the opening band. I like distinctive music, no camouflage. Anything from a dipping and diving pop-punk chorus to a stomping metalcore breakdown, I’m open minded. Expect articles, interviews and features on the big talking points – as well as honest reviews. I look forward to your thoughts and thanks for reading.
Tom Martin
Writer
English student, lifeguard and journalist. Always listening to music, live music where possible. Mainlining on pop punk and metal, most rock and dabbling in indie.
