Michael Laing
6 September 1963

Old punk rocker from Edinburgh, Scotland. Bassist. Photographer. Passionate about punk and metal music. Doesn't like cars yet. Believes wealth should be distributed according to need, not greed. Doesn't possess a televisual apparatus. Zero interest in football. Vegetarian. Definitely a bit of a Luddite.

I very much welcome new friends, but I won't add anonymous profiles. It's important for me to know with whom I'm interacting, so if your profile or user-icons don't include a photo of yourself, I won't add you.
