Alan Wright has been writing about rock 'n' roll music since the mid-80s, and as a freelancer has written for What Wave, Feline Frenzy, Maximum Rockandroll, Flipside, Between The Lines, The Rocket, The Stranger, Brutarian, 10 Things, The BOB, Ugly Things, Misty Lane and Hit List magazines. He began producing his own 'zines starting with What Now? in 1987, and later producing Cryptic Tymes and Do The Pop! He has also helped coordinate reissues of '60s garage and '70s punk band reissues and anthologies. Although he's a die-hard rock 'n' roller, he also digs a variety of sounds including primitive blues, rockabilly, R&B, '60s garage rock, Psychedelia, Soul and early '70s funk, Free Jazz and everything in between! Originally from Canada, he has lived with his wife Lisa in Seattle since 1993, where he dwells in a condo filled with way too many records, CDs, video tapes & DVDs, four cats and a bird. As well as writing about music, Alan plays, having been a drummer since he was 16. He's been in a number of garage and punk bands over the years including The 14th Wray, Thee Upper Crust, The Primate 5, The Castros, The Infernal Three, The Reckless Bastards, and most recently, The Earaches.
