Help me fix my guitar. (Massive fret buzz)

My Iceman is dodgy, I get massive horrendous fret buzz of the low E string, so bad it makes all my chords sound badly out of tune. There is also some buzz on the A string.

The neck is weird looking too, it's straight all the way up to around the 3rd fret then it's bowed forward slightly...

I thoughts at first were to lower the string height, so I got the allen key and was about to do it (Gibraltar Custom bridge) but I just can't move the screws on the bridge.
I can try turning them and they don't budge. I could put all my strength into it and they won't move an inch.

Any measurements needed just ask. This is really annoying me now.
