After the light last week, there must be darkness, I guess. So despite the spring weather, I’m heading into the dark.
For the majority of my life, I’ve never really lived in the country. I’ve always been in urban environments, where the nearest green space is a local park, and the […]
In a decision that perhaps would have surprised me a few years ago, never mind my wife, later this week we move out of London, our home for more than […]
Not for the first time, today I’m digging back into my original notes for a new /Tuesday Ten. I’ve actually been planning to write about this for years but hadn’t […]
We keep going amid the lockdown. There are new releases, and still, new music coming through, and buying music right now is the only way we can help. The events […]

I’ve been conscious that lately, I seem to have been covering darker subjects in this series, and I began to wonder, maybe, I should do a more positive post? Right […]
Thirty years ago last week – last Thursday, in fact, one of the most important alternative rock albums ever was released. Doolittle by Pixies remains a high-watermark, arguably kickstarted the […]
In a remarkable coincidence (and really, it is!), Tuesday Ten: 340 this week happened to fall in the week where I reach the landmark age of 40. When I realised […]

Playing with yourself. Pleasuring oneself. Wanking. Jerk off. Whack off. Frigging. Self-abuse. Self-pollution. Spank the monkey. Flip the bean. Onanism. etc.
After as usual a month or two off from this – new releases are thin on the ground at the end of the year anyway, and the end-of-year lists (start […]
This week, time for a Tuesday Ten I’ve been thinking about and working on, gradually, for a few months. I was set a challenge, you see: to come up with […]
Another month, time again for my usual monthly rundown of ten tracks you should hear. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of this months on Spotify, but what there is of […]
The weird thing about writing these Tuesday Tens is that the ideas for some take a long time to come together. Others can have a whole load of suggestions come […]
I can’t remember how the thinking for this week came about, but it might well have had something to do with the number of people who were stripping down in […]
Onto part three of my 90s album run-down. There is again a Spotify playlist accompaniment to it, which is only missing a couple of entries (it's remarkable how much is […]
The third instalment of this lengthy rundown.
