    I'm 100% irish actually. Was born and bred on the "mean" streets of Dublin and when I turned 21, I betrayed and left because I was fed up of the "fair" city. I've been living in Horwich outside of Manchester for about 3 years now. When I lived in Dublin, I used to frequent this site under a different screen name. Now that I'm back on the net, I'm sticking with the sites I know best. Anything else you'd like to know?

    Taking the piss now. Baby autobots are built by Alpha Trion and then brought to Vector Sigma so that they can be processed and given a suitable personality.

    Well now. That is a question that takes me back to the winter of 19-something-or-other. I woke up as normal that day, and decided that I would have a piece of toast. I set the toaster to three-medium brown. But as per usual, the toaster opened a slip gate to the jacobs factory, where I found myself in the middle of another adventure. As I rounded the first corner to wonkatania, I slipped into a coma briefly, as the sheer fright of a 3 ton choc-mallow frightened the be-jaysus out of me. When I did come round, a young boy called Jamie, along with his pet dog and a magic torch told me that all life was condensed to a slow vibration. That life is merely a dream and that we are all just the imagination of oursleves. And with this knowledge, it came to me. It doesnt matter how the figs end up in the rolls. They're just laced with heroin which makes them so goddamn tastey. What did ensue was a legal battle with jacobs as I suffered for many months from going cold turkey to get off them damn fig rolls.

    Ok fair enough. It's just that I heard that Liverpool has a very healthy indie/rock scene and wondered whether Manchester was the same.

    it is pretty healthy. At least healthy in a slaughterhouse kinda way. Being that bands appear and disappear about as regularly as livestock in a slaughterhouse. But yeah, it's a big gigging town. But most of the gigs I go to are more rock/metal orientated. Things like HIM, Deftones, InMe etc...And the supports tend to be rather dreary like Cathedral and Amped. Amped in particular were terrible. They never knew weither they were Inxs, Duran Duran or Tool. But it's not hard to get gigs in Manchester. The musician quota is by fair the biggest thing going in the northwest. It seems almost everybody is picking up some sorta instrument. I've been lucky enough to find a fantastic guitarist. Locating a drummer and singer is proving difficult. But actual musicians are plentiful.
