  1. The site was completely started from scratch, so even if you had an old account you'll have to reregister! I'm Jay. I started this nonsense back in 2002 then shut it down in 2012 or so as it was a losing battle against Facebook and other social media. Well guess who's back, baby. It only took the threat of millions getting sick and not being able to leave the house for the corona virus of websites to return. Since the site went on hiatus I moved from Cardiff to South Florida, got married, bought a house, adopted a dog, lost my wife to illness, lost my dog to illness. It's been busy

  2. Hey all, and welcome back SWM! I used to (not that frequently) post on here back then, mostly band stuff, stayed away from the politics haha! Used to play in Taint (bass) and for the oldies that remember Disco Assassins and Diabolo. Still play in Spider Kitten (drums and occasionally bass) plus since SWMarmageddon l picked up guitar and formed Made Of Teeth with the bassist from Spider kitten (who plays drums in MoT) and the bassist from Lacertilia, 2 releases to date and album #3 on the way!

  3. Hey hey, it's ya boi. I joined the massive back in 2005 and I ended up making friends with most of the people I had flame wars with. My band, Spider Kitten are still going, about to put out our 31st (?) release. I am considerably more chill than I was 15 years ago, but I still feel the same way about metalcore.

  4. Gotta resurrect the classics. I've got a new pup who gets to come to my office and hang out with me, and so despite all the other crumminess that's something that makes me happy at least. He has a nice face.

  7. As someone who completely ditched Facebook on NYE last year (sick of everything from Brexit to a family member's ridiculous opinions) it's actually good to see this back, especially considering everyone on the planet is on lockdown. I have been enjoying a kind of "mini" SWM in a Whatsapp group for a few years with Rae, DT, Chris and Andi and Holdfast but those guys still bully me relentlessly, so it'll be nice to see some old / new faces! Currently sat next to Rae in our home office. I've been working in from home in the same job for almost 12 years now, so the lockdown doesn't feel

  8. Hi! I started posting on here when I was 16/17 I think. 35 this year... 🤯 Made lots of friends on here, witnessed a lot of pointless arguments, went to many shows, put on a few, had a zine, married Phil from Elsid. Now we're seperated but we're best friends so it's OK. I live with my sister (Squeakyhead aka Lyndsey) and he lives with Howl, who I met on SWM.

  12. Nice, I'm gonna check that out. Thanks Coach. Ha, as I was reading this I was like 'Im sure that's the one I went to' and remembering seeing you at the end. They were always a fun band to see, and always been bummed I've not seen them play anywhere local here. I think the main thing that made me sad in the early 2010s when SWM started to fade was that it wasn't replaced by something newer, and better by young kids who had the energy and enthusiasm to do such things. I would've totally been on board with that, hell it would've probably spurred some joke war between sites or somethi

  13. Matt Cheap formerly of SHOOTIN GOON, THE CHEAPSKATES and GOOD CLEAN FUN RECORDS label & distro. Managed ADEQUATE SEVEN for a bit, spent a lot of time touring the toilet circuit around Europe before working in film and TV production for a while. Played in a wedding band CAPITAL CITY SKA for 10 years and got paid more for the first gig than I ever did in the Goon. Also formed THE BARRY HORNS brass band with other ex-Goons, Ad7 boys and a few others (Howl joined in as well) and did that for 7 years before knocking it on the head. Living in Cardiff, still go to gigs though mostly in Bri

  14. How timely. I swear I was trying to look back on some of the old and gold threads just a couple weeks ago for some nostalgic mirth. Was gutted to see it was all gone. I’m Hywel (of Bullets), and xhywelx before that. I guess SWM’s falling by the wayside coincided the beginnings of my career as a pencil pushing civil servant. Which I’m still doing in the health department of WG, currently embroiled in this Covid shit, so there’s really no escape from it. I was in all the bands back in the day and then hit 30 and thought “fuck that, I ain’t trying to be no old man in a rock band”. The

  15. I was just thinking to myself the other day how SWM might be if it was back. I'm Rae, think I joined here originally aound 2005? Met MonkDave666 in 2007, married him in 2012, been married 8 years next month. Who saw that coming huh? Still live in Cardiff. Still have cats. Still a bit awkward. I'd sell my soul for a decent coffee at this point and I can't wait to see people's lovely faces again.

  17. Hopefully I’m less of a dickhead these days... I, like a good 60% of hardcore kids approaching 30, decided after a string of shitty office jobs I’d like to draw on people... I guess I’m OK at it. Been living in Plymouth for about 8 years and have 2 children with my fiancé, 2 cats and a house. Life is good. Still vegan!

  21. So glad to see this back! Feel 15 years younger already. Better than Botox. Drummed for Shaped by Fate. Did a stint with Burning Skies and a super short one with Ad7 (whilst Ben was travelling). All super fun times. Now a GP in the Valleys. Married with 2 kids. Oh and..... COVID fuckin sux!!! (That's my official medical opinion)

  33. This all hit right in the middle of me having an insane amount of things to do... had friends over from back home and luckily they came and went before it hit, but I was supposed to go to Tampa for 4 days for WrestleMania and a bunch of other things with one of my best friends which got cancelled, I haven't seen Inter Miami kick a football yet despite having paid up like $300 to them (they still keep taking my money, thanks lads) and the hockey season got upended too, and I was going to see Adam Sandler with my inlaws. So a bunch of things got 'postponed' (read: no refunds) but at least some w

  37. Hey guys, Ash here, my old handle was "cocco" if memory serves. Since the old days I've got married, got divorced, bought a house, sold it, bought another house, got a dog, got a snake, got some cats, grown a better beard that before, gone bald and started an OU degree in environmental science. I still play bass, currently in Good Morning Vietnam. Other interests include ice hockey, craft beer and cooking.

  38. Older, not much wiser but less inclined to suffer fools gladly. Still making a rod for my own back with Mass Movement, did the band thing for a while again with AxTxOxTx, wrote for Doctor Who Magazine for a bit, finally got a publishing deal meaning that there's at least seven books on the way and started doing the podcasting thing with Chris (Andrews). Also discovered that, despite my punk rock protestations to the contrary when I was younger, I do want the finer things in life. Apart from that, it's business as normal, which means days filled with being a stay at home dad, comics, film,

  45. Yeah T2 is my other big action movie that I usually list, it's just so good. Blew my mind as a kid watching it on Sky Movies after getting the all clear from my dad. Hadn't seen the first, so had to go and get a copy of that afterwards. That pretty much opened the floodgates of all the 80s Arnie movies and the like, most of which were getting ITV saturday night treatments at the time. Then going out and buying the VHS copies to see the 'uncut' (lol right) versions. FMJ is my favourite war movie, and despite my love for it I'm pretty good at forgetting most of the details so whenever I wat
