I have been in and around metal for 25+ years on two different continents. Played in a few local bands in venues all over Perth. Into a diverse range of metal not content with being pigeon holed into one particular style. Love to travel and meet metalheads all over the planet and regularly attend major and minor festivals throughout Europe and the Americas.
How did you become involved?
Former long time RTRFM presenter Johhny Jihad was leaving the show and heading over to Europe to live & work so “The Quest” was to be cancelled. I met Matt (Militia) through John and we spoke about the possibility of me joining the ranks at Johnny’s farewell party. (This is when The Quest moved into the Critical Mass timeslot from the previous Behind The Mirror one.) The rest, as they say, is history.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Scorpions – Humanity Hour I
- Gamma Ray – New World Order
- Threshold – March Of Progress
- Icehouse – Man Of Colours
- Pretty Maids – Pandemonium
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
The privilege of presenting heavy & powerful music that I am passionate about, and the ability to promote metal from all over the planet and especially support the local scene here in Perth.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
A heap of cool stuff has happened over the years but nothing truly strange. (How is that measured anyway?)
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
If I could gather a relevant body of work to fill any other show, I’d be happy to give it a go.
What do you do in real life?
I wonder what it’s all about. (I pretend I know.)
