Older than time itself, John exists on a diet of Rum, Haribo and music.
Whilst focusing mainly on the heavier end of the spectrum, he has found his tastes mellowing with age. Having retired from his career as the greatest drunken karaoke singer in the vicinity of his imagination, he now spends his days supporting the underground metal scene, only occasionally coming up to breathe in the heady aroma of the mainstream.
His hobbies include the giving of hugs (he is hoping to shortly gain his black belt – much needed as his shorts keep falling down) and avoiding adulting. One day he hopes to find someone who will pay him to sit around listening to music all day. Until such time he is forbidden from talking about the mythical “Day Job”, mainly because it bores people senseless.
If you see him about, go say hello. He doesn’t bite. Unless you ask nicely.
And don’t worry about him. He has music, he has life….
Hez is like Marmite… except some people actually like Marmite.
An opinionated b…witch, she is the one responsible for the site after sneaking into the press room at a festival and seeing the awful way the smaller bands were treated by the media there.
She is the editor of the site and the general bossy boots of the team.
If you see her, we advise throwing chocolate and backing away very slowly.
Sean’s just this guy, you know?
But to be more specific, he’s the resident game guy, and he loves music too.
Some say he loves something else even more but we can’t tell you what that is (at least until they agree to advertise with us).
Hi! My name’s Angel.
I have worked in radio and been to some big fests doing interviews and photos but found that nothing beats small fests as you get to meet new and old friends. I’ve taken photos at some great gigs that I go to, and will be sharing them with you on Phoenix Rising.
I love listening to rock – not this grind death stuff but the old school stuff style.
The less said about Neil, the better for all concerned.
He’s the tech geek of the site, usually kept under the stairs and fed a diet of coffee and digestive biscuits.
His primary job is poking at the website to keep it working. Well, mostly working.
He is also in charge of feeding the server gerbil.
Also known to do reviews on occasion when he has some free time, and he also occasionally posts gaming or tech related news.
