Jason Lewis
UK Music Editor

Jason Lewis is a Birmingham based music, movie and arts obsessive.

Jason's encyclopedic knowledge of 80s/90s Arts films is a debt to his embedded status in the Triangle Arts Centre frontlines back then.

When Jason's not watching what other people are watching, and not listening to whatever other people are listening to he's taking the time out to tell people about it on his facebook page which is well worth checking out.
