About me

I’ve been a journalist for over 30 years, working for Sounds, NME, nme.com, Xfm, Metal Hammer and a whole bunch of other titles that I’ve long since forgotten. I still love music though I appreciate that I’ve painted myself into a corner a little bit in that nobody outside of a tiny circle gives a fuck about bands like Sunn O))) and Wolves In The Throne Room. Hey. I’d still rather shred my head to a Xasthur album than watch some mainstream dullards like The Editors or the Enemy any day. And despite the fact that I’m over 50, I avoid blokey nostalgia like dog-sick. Mind you, there’s a lot to be said for and about The Pop Group’s For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?
