just curious s'all, it's probably been done before, but how did you find this site? random google search? recommendation? Metro guide?
I was first exposed to it just after it changed names from something else, and a mate at school was writing a few articles for the punky side of things, I guess around 99-00? Used to have a look at school now and again, actually wrote an article or two (under his name, lazy bastard). Reached a small amount of infamy by DARING to say Hot Water Music had been better than Leatherface one night at the Bassment in Leeds. http://festivals.drownedinsound.com/event/view/138
They really weren't good that night, HWM were immense though.
Lost touch a bit during uni, just used it to keep track of releases and gigs and so forth, but then refound the site when I had a bit of spare time at my new work.
I guess I'm a born again DiSer.
And you lot?
