The Moshville Times

James “Jimmy” Costin

I’m Jimmy and I do something called ‘Audio Engineering’ when I’m not doing moshville stuff. I like meeting new folk which has led to me forming friendships with some awesome musicians and people.

From: Preston (Lancashire)

Currently based: Preston

Preferred genres: Something with melody and a good singer on it. But nothing with synths being the lead instruments. Not a fan.

Favourite bands: Damn, this one’s hard… In no order: Wolfheart, Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, Persefone, Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah, Deserted Fear, Kreator, Enslaved.

Favourite albums: Persefone – Spiritual Mitigation, Wolfheart – Winterborn, Insomnium – Winters Gate, Cannibal Corpse – Kill, Enslaved – Ruun, Kreator – Hordes Of Chaos, Witherscape – The Northern Sanctuary 

Most embarrassing album owned: I’m not embarrassed by my music collection. Whilst it does contain a few things outside the scope of ‘metal’ I enjoy it all. There’s no album that I own that I don’t enjoy.

Favourite venues: Audio, QMU, Classic Grand, The Grand (Clitheroe), O2 ABC- Glasgow, O2 Islington- London.

First gig: Sassoon and Bentley – The Grand Clitheroe. I love a good bit of jazz.

Favourite gig: Toss up between Skuggsjá / Enslaved / Wardruna at The Coronet Theatre (19/03/16), Persefone / Poem at The Underworld (16/04/17) and Dream Theater at the Royal Concert Hall (20/04/17).

Favourite drink: Water, Appletizer.

Favourite food: Anything that doesn’t contain mushrooms. I can’t stand them.
