Thought it might be a nice idea for people to post in here and tell everyone a little about themselves.
No particular structure to it, just say what you like, and if you got nothing to say, well thats cool too.
I'm Andrew, if you haven't guessed from the Username. I'm 19 years old, I live up near Manchester in England, and I'm a huge Folds fan.
I've grown up with an interest in music, and I've been playing the piano for 11 years now - though I wouldn't say i'm an accomplished musician, I just enjoy playing.
The first time I heard one of Bens songs was from an old Collegehumor video about 'Metaphor-free radio'. They played Brick and changed the chorus a little bit, but the song stuck with me. I bought the song and left it at that until my last year of college (For you Americans, thats like a bit between high school and your 'college' from 16-18), at that point I just happened to stumble on the first BFF album. I was immediately blown away. I could tell these guys were great musicians, and they knew just what to add to a piece and when to add it.
I've enjoyed Bens work later on, and his progression as a musician, but there was just something about Ben Folds Five, that put them way above any band I've heard before.
At least, in my opinion.
