Ever since I was a toddler I was obsessed with music, it completely overtook me and everyday as a child I was taken away by it like it was my life’s mission. I was in awe of Steve’s band Manticore when I saw them play by trying to sneak into the pub in Wagga when I was 16. I had never ever heard heavy metal before that as extreme as what he was playing and I thought he was the absolute hottest guy I had ever seen to be completely honest. Something about the overwhelming intensity attracted me to him and the music. I love intense unapologetic people and Steve was fearless in his expression. It inspired me to want to write heavy tunes and from that moment I gave up open chords and started playing power chords on the guitar and amp I stole from my high school dreaming of my pop songs being played with extreme guitar and double kicks.
In terms of performance it would be Corey Taylor, Lizzy Hale, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Chris Cornell, Tracy Bonham, Nikkah Costa, but my fav vocalist is Barney Greenway from Napalm Death because of his heart and humility... I love Barney for his energy.
I’m working on the Heaven The Axe ballads with another friend Skippy’s Brain, He hasn’t got the metal filter so were working together to make these songs a bit more emotional and then once we have the song completed we will take it to the boys to put a little bit of their edge to it. But Azza, Steve and Tim are in Frankenbok. Azza is in a third band called Never and Tommy our drummer is in Strict Vincent. Any day ending in Y and we are playing music.
Thanks Phoebe... cheers and hails!!
