About me:'...A place positively fizzing over with wild enthusiasm... where you can learn about new bands before your mates...' - The Guardian ‘... To be there at the birth of something musically great and to document it with style and love, rockfeedback does that time after time; call it dumb luck or call it art; you choose...’ - Geoff Travis, Founder of Rough Trade ‘Rockfeedback is the purest youth of 2004, meets the motormouth teenage genius that is our Toby L.’ - Alan McGee, Founder of Poptones / Creation, 'A truly annoying music website. Why is it annoying? Because the guys writing on it are more eloquent and passionate than I am, they're making a documentary series for MTV2 already, and they're only about 12 years old. Little shits.' - Dominik Diamond, Daily Star, ‘I have been working with rockfeedback as a writer and co-host of the Basement Club concert series. I realize there are far too few media representations of the music culture that actually focus on the music - and not just the regurgitated, minor celebrity gossip that fuels most other magazines... Toby L has personally witnessed more live concerts, and spoken with more musicians than anyone I know...’ - Gordon V. Raphael, Producer & Threat (Shoplifter Records)
