Finton

Sabotaging since 7 Jul 2011

Finton spent most of his teens collecting vinyl he couldn’t afford before deciding it’d be cheaper all round to start working in record shops. He achieved his dream of owning his own by the mid 90’s and ran it into the ground 4 years later. Chastened, he jumped aboard the I.T. gravy train and has managed to cling on ever since. He’s currently spreading his musical gospel via the medium of the “Freestylin” slot on www.fcumradio.co.uk, a show which has been described as “…Trevor Nelson meets Shameless” and “…sounding like Stuart Maconie’s mildly autistic brother”. Thanks to cutting his teeth on the fanzine circuit this past 20 years, he’s capable of spouting his eloquently forthright ( and frequently misguided ) views on most things entertainment related. Usually via his Twitter feed @FreestyleFinton.
