My self-summary
Hello, ladies. I'm Dave.

I'm lead vocalist for a hardcore band called MASSACRES. I'm not scary though, honest. I'm very nice and laid back. I also play drums, write and "sing" in a skiffle pop geek rock five-piece called Sun Tete Shoe le Card.

For 2 years I appeared as one half-of a stand-up double act. We were called G=MC Squared. We had aspirations to perform at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival, but we never got round to it. We're currently writing a new set for 2016 though, so fingers crossed!

I had my second novel published in April 2014. It's called ACHE and is available on Amazon in both paperback and digital ink. I'm writing my third at the moment. It's called FUGUE STATE.

I get easily distr-

I run a few miles every other day. I'm running the marathon this year!
I box. I play tennis. I also really enjoy setting off in a random direction just walking around London, taking it all in.

For the month of October 2014 I travelled the length and breadth of Eastern Europe to learn how to play Balkanese folk music and drink myself clean for my thirtieth birthday. Budapest was Buda-best.

The most romantic texts I currently get are from Domino's Pizza, so let's put an end to that together.

There's a picture knocking about of me dressed as a woman from when I sang Hello in the student room at work. This was to raise money for charity... You can see it if you ask nicely.

Thanks for clickin'! X
What I’m doing with my life
In Paris I travelled to different companies to help their employees out with their English language skillz (with which they could then pay the billz.) . Now I'm a tour guide and teacher for international students based in Holborn. It's pretty good!
I’m really good at
Morrissey impressions, talking, laughing at my own jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably how enthusiastic I am about almost anything. My nickname at Uni was Enthusiastic Dave. My curly hair. It's particularly virile at the moment.

New addition - ginger beard.

Also, Very Loud Laugh. I can't stress that enough.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I listen to hours and hours of 6 Music per week. They channel my brain and broadcast it to the nation, it seems!

I love all kinds of music and going to gigs. My favourite bands are probably Protomartyr, Hooded Fang, The Chariot, Basement, Pavement, Pissed Jeans, Refused, Reuben, The Fall, Neutral Milk Hotel, Brand New, Elliot Smith, Deftones (incredible and underrated!!) =W=, Beirut,Radiohead, The Smiths, Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, The Cinematic Orchestra, yourcodenameis:milo, Menace Beach, Glassjaw, early Foo Fighters, ...Trail of Dead, Elliott Smith, Bon Iver, James Blake, The Misfits, Dead Kennedys, on and on and on it goes...

My favourite films are Anchorman and There Will Be Blood, I suppose.

I read all kinds of books and have a wide taste, but a few of my favourites are Rules of Attraction by B.E.Ellis and Post Office by Bukowski. Also, every word Kurt Vonnegut not only wrote but also thought about AT ANY POINT.

My favourite kind of food is Indian and, of course, cheese.

I like red wine and beer and cocktails and such.
The six things I could never do without
Guitar, magic marker, Word, CDs, rum, stereo.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How cool it would be to travel the world on a permanent basis!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about, having a good time, checking my okcupid profile in the toilets again and again and again and again (literally every 45 seconds.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I had a time machine I'd go back in time to see LCD Soundsystem's last ever show and THEN kill Hitler.

EDIT- What do you mean they've reformed? Come again?
You should message me if
You like to have a laugh and would like to go for a drink with a nice, friendly guy.

I AM NOT MENTAL
