March 24th "No I won't tell you the year
", J.S. Clayden is the vocalist
and programmer for left wing
Nottingham band pitchshifter
. His vocal style has changed considerably over the past decade, improving with age
. All in all, Clayden is damned cool
Bumping into him outside the student's union in Manchester, I asked him why he was not doing the autograph signing in the city centre. "Because I'm hungover" came the simple response.
"It's a crazy idea, I know, but let's build houses for the homeless instead of giant domes for the tourists", political and taking no crap - he comments that Pitchshifter is about getting people to think instead of accepting what they read/hear in the news.
His energy, and slam dancing abilities have caused more than one concert to devolve into one big mosh pit (yes, I still have scars). But, most important of all....I kissed him.
