Adams - Music Review Team Leader

Adams describes himself as a musical artist, but mainly makes offensive noise.  He's an advocate for his local scene and enjoys going to a show or two.  He runs a noise/local scene label, Pizza Hell Studios, that distributes tapes and CDs of his band Gloom Cocoon, Friday the 13th noise compilations, and other local groups.  He also had a stint creating zines and comics, but that's another story for another time.  He spends his time working in the studio on musical projects, laughing at his own lack of wit, and staring at screens all day.
