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

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 (

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

Hiya,

I'm Gareth. Can't remember my previous username but i barely posted anyway, was a long time lurker to see what was going on the the scene after i moved from Cardiff to London. And to check out all the nostalgic stuff from when i lived there. Always end up back in the SWM video archive.

Got into Punk/Hardcore/Ska after moving to Cardiff for Uni in 97, moved to London for work in 03, moved to New York in 2019. Pretty much been going to shows the entire time which was pretty easy when I was spoilt for choice in London. 

I still have my old Fractures, miss drinking in The Angel Tavern on a Thursday(?) and mourn the loss of TJ's. Good times.

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)

Don’t get too excited mate, no one posts here, in fact you are close to be the second most prolific poster on here!

On se revoit, SWM.

I’m not sure if you will all remember me from back in the day, but here I am. I wasn’t the most talkative or savvy back then, but don’t hold that against me. 

I went into a musical wormhole earlier on whilst suffering in bed with the virus, got browsing through a few of the old South Wales favourites, and then found my way back to this nostalgic paradise. 

P.S. as horrifying as it still is, it wouldn’t have felt right if Salts Banan hadn’t made at least one appearance on SWM redux.

Morning All,

I was just wondering what ever happend to SWM and did a quick Google. Surprised to see it start back up again.

Can't remember what my username was on the old site but I stopped paying attention to the forum after 2006. 

I was mainly a lurker, after gig postings more than anything. 

I do remember meetings a lot of SWM-ers at gigs. I also remember a lot of fights with SWM-ers at gigs. (Ahh to be a teenager again) 

Fortunately, an adult now. Back in Cardiff since 2016 after dossing about. Miss live music and apart from trying to keep up with the delights of US hardcore, am very removed from any music scene. So hence my purpose here.

I hope that it's a bit less intense compared to the heady days of the 2000s here.

Used to hang around you Shaped by Fate lot. Joined the Army around 2007.
