Marianne Smith

I’m Mareep, a twenty-year-old media student with an insatiable love for gut-wrenchingly awful puns, dad jokes, dank memes, sleeping and shows fuelled by dark humour.

From: J’habite à North Ayrshire en Ecosse. Sadly, it’s not as exquisite as Peter Jackson’s adaptation.

Preferred genres: My musical taste is all over the spectrum, there’s very little that I dislike. I’m a big fan of pop punk, hardcore, shoegaze, folk, jazz, crossover thrash, death, post-black, NWOBHM… the list is perpetual, to say the least.

5 favourite bands: Ah, the dreaded question – woe is me! Neck Deep, Razorwyre, Death, Slayer and Violator. Although, I’ve been listening to a disgraceful amount of The Story So Far, Steel Panther, Angelus Apatrida, A Day to Remember and Brand New lately.

5 favourite albums: XO by Elliott Smith, Powerslave by Iron Maiden, The Art of Partying by Municipal Waste, SKRWD by WSTR and Four Year Strong’s self-titled album.

Most embarrassing album owned: I have some Haircut 100 vinyl in my collection – courtesy of my dad, of course.

Favourite venues: Barrowlands, The Cathouse, Audio or The Garage.

First gig: Never Shout Never’s Time Travel tour with Tonight Alive, back in the glory days of 2012.

Favourite gig: Lords of the Land (2015) with Carcass, Obituary, Napalm Death, Herod, Voivod, Extreme Noise Terror, Man Must Die, Desecration, Exile The Traitor, Revulsion, Cancerous Womb and Co-Exist.

Favourite drink: I made my own dyno drink in a restaurant once, good times. It’s between Irn-Bru, Heineken or a Lemmy.

Favourite food: Stuffed crust pepperoni pizza or chicken fried rice.
