Why I never looked for an SA community before is beyond me, but I finally did recently. So, now, here's the obligatory hello post.
I'm Angela. 19, from Ohio, USA.
I'd heard of Skunk Anansie before. I don't know where from. But i never actually heard them. Was too lazy to check them out too.
I used to go by the name of 'Sevendust' on a game chat(before the band of the same name got much recognition.). I had downloaded some of their songs, as well, and happened across Licking Cream, which has Skin doing vocals. Her voice amazed me, and after a bit of research, I found out who she was. So began my adoration of SA, after hearing many of their songs.
I visited my boyfriend in England last october, and he told me an intersting story; He bought an mp3 cd player, and it was supposed to be brand new. When he got it home and opened it, Stoosh was in it. Just the cd, not the case. He ended up giving it to me cause he knew I'd like it, on a train ride. That was my first time hearing the entire cd through, and I realized I liked them even more. It had to have been fate.
To my sheer delight, I also found out around that time, that Mark Richardson was the new (possibly temporary, as nothing's confirmed yet really, but..) drummer for my favorite band ever, Feeder.
So, that's really the basics of it. The best part though, happened last May 29.
Feeder's touring in the US now. They're opening for this horrible band. But, I drove the 4 hours to Cleveland to catch feeder. And I got the pleasure of meeting all the band, including Mark. They all hung out in the slightly-small, but there crowd, ended up going out to their bus, which I did too, waiting for them to come out after relaxing a bit. Appearently, Mark had went back in the venue. I was waiting to talk to Grant (Some other girl was talking to him, I wanted to wait my turn and not be rude.) I heard a door open from the stage behind me, and looked over my shoulder, and there was Mark again, with one of the roadie-type people, I think. I didn't catch his name. Anyways.
Looked over the shoulder and smiled at Mark, I figured he'd do what most people do, smile and walk off. Instead, he threw me for quite the suprise by telling me I had a gorgeous smile and coming over and putting his arm around me. We chatted for upwards of 40 mins, and he said lots of cute playful things to make me blush like mad during that time.
So yeah, I've met Mark. Totally sweet guy. And I have a big crush on him. Haha. :) That's my (kinda) SA story.
