I live in North Wales and live for music. I've played in lots of bands over the years including Carnage (N.Wales) and Soundstate, and supported such bands as Life Of Agony, Ugly Kid Joe, Carcass, Bomb Disneyland, and Acid Reign to name a few. Love music and supporting live gigs. Would love to promote bands at some point if anyone is interested.
