So, that question some of us dread – Who Am I? Well, although the name might imply I have an ever metastasis of hair situated upon me, it is actually quite a tame rendition in the grand scheme of stubble design you see perpetrating amongst the current beard hiptsters you see braising the streets. It was name suggested in passing by fellow Sheffield companion Bozzwell. Here's the scene:

One of the rare stints I had was sporting a rather large growth upon my cheeks (due to sheer laziness and hatred of shaving more than anything), I was wandering London Road in a comatose state from a late night fried chicken binge. I bumped into Boz and, after a bit of chatting, he muttered “You should go by the name Beard Shaper, the hipsters will love it”. 6 months later, and I'm still using it so it appears the alias will be staying for a short while – prablaly until I get bored of this one. I used to use the name Sir Vinyl Instinct but between using less vinyl (I'm still a major collector) and thinking the name was a load of old piss, I was overjoyed about the prospect of using a less-shit name.

Anyhow, I digress. Who the hell am I? My name is Leeroy, hailing from Manchester originally. Sheffield ragamuffin since Y2K and been here ever since. In the day (and most evenings it seems) I run co-run Just Good Music PR and founded Itchy Pig Records and IP Publishing. I'm also the co-founder and main editor of the music blog Mind Grub Audio. I'm a major digger, producer, DJ and soon be be father. I like BBQs and gatherings in the sun. I also have a dog called Funk. Oh and I chuffing love Sambucca.

So, that's me. Apologies if it's a description of complete nonsense. I push peoples music every day and don't find it a problem. However when it comes to chatting about yourself, it seems all so strange. Who am I to chat about me?
