About bassetrox
Im a music freak. So much for a multifaceted character.

I am a 19 year old guitarist and flautist from the North of England. I enjoy playing and listening to all genres of music. No exceptions (rap is not really music).

As well as the playing side I'm slowly trying to build up the ingredients for a home studio type thing, but money isn't really on my side.

Off to York in October to study an electronic engineering degree with a music techy emphasis. Geeky as hell 8-), but I'm really looking forward to it.:)

Play in a couple of bands here in teeside atm - the cheesefest that is www.fullspectrumband.co.uk and the newly reformed www.myspace.com/2x4s
