You get the rock n roll dissent you deserve (and at this point, Australia needs five courses and desert with nightcaps at the sleaziest bar in town). Riffs. Love. The Devil; you’re not alone if you want it to be otherwise.

:: What is your favourite Album ::
Probably Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here. I have listened to it a million times and it always works.
