June 2002: I'm twenty-one-years old. I come from a
small town called Redruth in Cornwall. Right now Im
finishing my studys in Manchester. I've been writing
what I write since I was fourteen. I used to try and
imitate the lyrical styles of singers from the bands I
loved to listen to and gradually developed my own style.
My favorite lyricists are people like Chino Moreano
from the Deftones, Maynard from Tool. And words from
songs from other bands such as the Melvins, any thing
affiliated with Mike Patton. I don't really like any
proper poets i find them bland. I think abstraction is the
key just have to link it the right way. All my words are
about things that I've experienced, harsh intense periods
of life which have neally destroyed me mentally. Writing
it all down like this helps a great deal, to put in to
words. Even if no one else gets it I do it only for me.
