Hia, I’m typing from inside Platform 1 at Edge Hill Station, wearing glasses, trying to sit up straight and not overdo it with the coffee. Interactions between Metal and me go way back: I’ve performed Works in Progress, taken part in an online residency, and patched in for stretches of freelance technical work. Before this I undertook a degree in music, played in bands, then toiled between touring and jobs in kitchens, bars, retail. From 2010 I began work in a handful of Liverpool venues, which led to events programming, and starting up an ‘egalitarian clubnight’ called Cartier 4 Everyone. This fed into radio, broadcasting, and streaming online, which I fuse together with other passions to form a playful emergent practice. All of this has helped me along the way to being truly welcomed into the wonderful fit that is Metal Liverpool. Sanskruti’s Paneer Lababdar is the best thing to eat in town; an author that changed the way I think would be Ursula K. LeGuin; you can catch me actively listening to people speak passionately about culture, the internet, and the future on overpriced headphones.
