The Scribes

So who are the Scribes at You can find out a little bit about those with the (virtual) quill in their hand here:

Nik - Nik could have been a rockstar, but he was too short (and other excuses).  Instead, he put his energy into working out how to design stuff, build web stuff and string a decent series of words together.  He is a big fan of original and unique sounding bands, loving a good melody and anthem - although he has been known to listen to 90s glam rock in private.

Along with Nik, he has co-founded the Raging Horns alternative online store and the Rage PR promotional agency. His favourite band are, and will always be, Metallica.

We've also got some other friends that, whilst they're not "on the payroll" (not that we pay) chip in with valuable contributions to Scribes from time-to-time, so we think they deserve a mention as well!
