Who Are We?

Yeah I Know It Sucks, but..
Who The Hell Are These People?
Alex Spalding
is obsessed with music, particularly percussion and rhythm. He is also a multi-instrumentalist spending a lot of time mastering and producing music.
He is also the operator behind the Noise-Joy net label that officially died in October of 2008. Currently a co-owner of X.O.S. Musick. Next to that he likes to listen to a lot of different music, which makes him the perfect quality reviewer for Yeah I Know It Sucks

stands for Kai Nobuko who is also known as Toxic Chicken, Covolux and others.
Next to making experimental diary music with his craptop, he is fairly interested in music that not everyone seems to appreciate. Highly addicted to lobit music , he runs the lobit labels Top Of The Flops and floppy diskette based SPTOtfSP.
His obviously bad  taste in music is one of his key trademarks, making him a great reviewer for Yeah I Know It Sucks.

Wayne Rex
I hail from Dorset, UK and I’m a freelance drummer, playing solo stuff, session stuff and the other half of the duo EUH! Specialising in free jazz (though not that keen on that label) free improvisation, jazz, experimental, psychedelic, electronica etc.. the list goes on. As a beard enthusiast you will find me actively protesting outside local hipster headquarters to ban them from making my chosen facial wig, fashionable. Discovering new music has always been my greatest love. Even my son and whisky know that they have to take second and third place, respectively, in my life (Damn, accidently quoted the Beatles.. I don’t like the Beatles) so writing up my wee reviews for underground artist is an absolute pleasure!
