About Me

Crumbs. That's a hell of a question..... I was born as Adam and still get called that everyday, but when I feel important enough to have a Psendonym, you get me as DrasL......... Alright. So I've just moved to Iceland trying to officially become an Architect [but I’m not really proud of that]. I'm from Cardiff, lived in Vienna for a while, went to Uni in Portsmouth, was in Iceland for a too short of a period, and ended up back there, where it all started with a haircut i didn't really understand. God this is really hard........ So when I’m not working, pretending to make our cities better places [ha-ha, yeah right], I'm normally making noise at home and properly annoying the neighbours [but not intentionally]. I've DJed in different forms and places [Cardiff, London, Portsmouth, Vienna, Reykjavik to name drop a bit] and each event has been interesting for different reasons. My photo is from the last Rekjavik gig [note the Spillers Records T-shirt. If your ever in Cardiff its a must to visit that Record Shop. OK, enough shameless advertising and I don't even work there. I just buy too much stuff from there. please save it from shutting down. it would be an absolute shame if that place was ever lost]. I was also a Radio DJ on the university radio station but left after I got a bollocking for not sticking to the playlists and swearing live on air [it was a midday show]. I mess around making/trying/pretending to make songs, which are never really songs but a mass of sounds which are never very good. If I’m not making noise and annoying the neighbours then I’m at a gig or event somewhere [nowhere is ever to far to travel for a gig if its possible]. This sounds all too pretentious if I’m honest. Sorry. When music is not involved, I’m normally travelling somewhere. Mostly, lunchtimes at work are spent looking for festivals/gigs or weird football matches in weird cities to attend. Spent 4 months in- between my degree and diploma travelling around [I could bore you with details and I’ve probably bored you enough already]. Enough drivel for now, but I’ll probably edit this at some point when I read it back and realise it’s a load of rubbish. Oh well. Bless bless

I know what you mean RE: cool record shops closing. We have nothing in my town except Box Stores and Corporate Whores. The last independent closed last Spring (Soundwave CDs) I'm still very depressed about that. P.S. Mogwai shouldn't fear me. I'm a nice guy really. I've just gotten bad press all these years. ;-)
