Topic: Sex offender in the scene -

Pretty much anyone involved in diy punk/hardcore scenes in the Midlands over the last 25 years or so will likely know the person in question, as I'm sure many others nationally will. In addition to the offence he has just been sent down for, there have beeen victims within the punk/hardcore scenes.

Not sure what else to say apart from solidarity to those abused and impacted.

Scumbag. Who is he?

Re: Sex offender in the scene -

I was pretty shocked to read / hear about this. A regular at a lot of gigs and seemingly approachable and friendly. Who can you trust?!

I suppose fringe cultures attract as many fucked up people as everywhere else. If anything the fringe aspect of a subculture welcomes wayward behaviour and for some that manifests is some disturbing activity. I've always been involved with industrial music and that attracts some properly abusive bastards.

Won't name names but I knew a few creepy people in the Tap-era Edinburgh punk scene and my mate who was active in the Bristol scene has a few pretty alarming stories about someone in a notable band.

I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the first time
I never think about the last
