Other than the music I am a comic book fanatic, a big reader of both fiction and non-fiction and a fan of real ale and single malt whisky. I also like to see films at the cinema as much as I can. Recently I've been immersing myself in the art world as well - I don't really know anything about it but I know what I like.
I consider myself an old-fashioned sort of bloke - good manners are important to me, I'm polite and avoid confrontation in situations (so very English), think tradition is rather important and drink a lot of tea. Far too much tea.
If you've ever read the book/seen the film "High Fidelity", I am exactly like Rob (the main character). I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not.
There is a dream of going pro with the music - maybe one day!
I'm a very good traveller - although I've not been to many exotic places! I spend a significant amount of time on the train or driving and, though I live in Reading, can often be found trudging around London and Oxford. I've got all the little tricks down to make journeys bearable.
I'm fairly quiet (until you start talking to me, then you won't shut me up!) so I'll usually be the guy sitting on his own having a pint and reading the paper.
I am currently reading "The Music Instinct" by Phillip Ball and Gombrich's "The Story Of Art" (yes, both at once!).
Movies - I love horror movies (particularly psychological & Evil Dead style films) as well as thrillers. Favourite films are Blade Runner, Leon, The Ring (Japanese), Evil Dead 2.
Music - everything, although my favourite music is soul and funk music. I also love jazz. Rock, metal, pop, reggae, electro, hip hop, etc. all have a place in my heart as well though.
Food - I love eating out or ordering take away and pretty much love all food. I particularly like spicy food and especially thing smothered in sauce (or a roast drowned in gravy!).
