Elisabeth's interest in indie music began in the NYC punk and hardcore scene in the early 80's before moving to London in 1985 where she continued to both play and write. Always the bridesmaid, she has played gigs in lots of bands alongside such notables as The Fall, Bob Rock, some dude from Toto and Girlschool, but put away the bass (gave it away, actually) in 1992. These days she prefers to hunt down new music with the ferocity of a wild animal and 'out' hidden talent. She has a particular interest in Scandinavian (especially Norwegian) indie music - “because it is SO very unusual, and they usually despise us - I like that”, and endeavors to break away from the mendacity and mundanity of mainstream music journalism.
