Update – May 2024

Hi, a few bits of news on the writing front.   I’m now looking into editing and publishing (probably self-publishing) for the “Dark Scene 500” book, subjects that are entirely new to me.  I have a few leads, but if anyone knows anyone who can help with either, please get in touch, as the internet is full of conflicting advice!  All I’ve learned so far is ‘steer clear of vanity publishers’.  

Whilst I’ve been waiting for responses, I’ve updated the existing Listerners Guides on this site, with plans to write a new one soon.  This includes releases up to 2024, included the long-awaiting end to Project Pitchfork’s most recent trilogy.   If you haven’t checked them recently, take a look at the Articles Page.  

Lava – May 2024

Back to Lava with DJ’s Translight and Mark13, featuring live bands Down from Above and Inertia (finally Reza and I on the same bill!). This time held in the legendary Cart and Horses pub in East London. Being the home of Iron Maiden, this set was more guitar heavy than what I’d normally do – but given it was an afterparty set, a lot of old favourites made it in. But not before a minutes noise in tribute to Steve Albini.
