Music's always been a
particular passion of mine and I felt that it deserved its own section
on my website. Mostly it's a place to share my various charts and
general ramblings, though you should also keep an eye on my blog
for any new musical musings.
in to my charts and witterings, you might want to know a bit about
my music taste. The easiest way to get an overview of the stuff
I like is to visit my last.fm

I love a lot of Welsh bands. It's probably not surprising then that
my favourite band are/were Catatonia. Although, prior to that, my
favourite band was Queen, who are still up in my top 5 favourite

complementary feedback about it.

and such like, but for now you can check out my various charts and
my A-Z blog posts:
