About me:Broadcaster, music journalist, DJ and writer! Check out my new book, Worldwide Gothic available through IMP Books from 23 July 2011. Available for pre-order now on AMAZON!
I was the founding editor of meltdown magazine - the UK's biggest selling mag for Goths and co-produced BBC Radio 1's documentary all about Goth culture, Beyond the Pale. I also co-hosted the Licensed To Rock show on Rockworld TV with Talita and Chris!
I've been interviewed for countless Classic Rock Productions music DVDs and appear in the HIM documentary 'Poison Arrow' - I was one of the first UK journalists to interview the band and play their music. You've probably heard me before on various BBC radio stations defending the Goth movement and you may have even seen me being interviewed about it on BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
So, yeah, I'm a media whore!
I've been working as a paid journalist since 1994 and believe me, it's been a long hard slog but I finally feel like I've got half a foot in the door now. Yes, this is how I make my living and as much as I would love to contribute to fanzines/webzines, I just don't have the time to do this at the moment so please don't be offended if I decline invitations to write for you or your site. That said, music is my life so I really couldn't imagine doing anything else :)
I will add most people/bands unless we really don't have anything in common. I am not interested in fetish/BDSM, swinging, drugs, rap music, football, getting pissed or black/death metal so if that's you to a tee, I will probably decline your invitation - sorry! I do like gothic rock, punk, glam, metal, deathrock, some electro, Tim Burton and I've been straight edge all my life so if that's your bag then step this way!
UPDATED ADDRESS! If you want to send me your CD or demo, please mail it to: Natasha, PO BOX 543, Beaconsfield, HP9 1WL, ENGLAND. I do listen to everything I get sent (eventually!)
As some of you can't seem to read, I'd just like reiterate: I AM NOT interested in drugs, alcohol, fetish, swinging, football or rap music. If I continue to receive friends requests from groups relating to any of these or from people whose interests are exclusively about these things (ie we have nothing musically in common), I WILL start blogging straight edge/poison-free/pro-monogomy rants and you really don't want me to do that ;) You have been warned...

Who I'd like to meet:Not many of my musicial heroes left that I haven't met but I'd love to share some intellectual discussion with Marilyn Manson and swap hair dye tips with Trent Reznor some day...
