Pseudo Jazz Critic with a penchant for ECM, Rune Grammofon, Tzadik and all forms of out-jazz/metal/rock/ambient/electronica!

I came to the world of Jazz a few years back through slightly predictable means; looking for something new and refreshing outside of the traditional avenues of independent punk and angular experimental rock I felt I had all but explored. It was a daunting prospect knowing where to begin, but I luckily stumbled across this fine site and was able to get ample help in discovering Jazz that was more suited to my palate through the forums. Upon purchasing my first releases from the glorious ECM label and a few titles from Atavistics FMP reissue series, a whole new world opened up to me. Jazz started to make sense. My tastes since have gone on to devour musics as diverse as minimal electronica, ambient dub, world music and avant-garde classical music, largely due to the fluidity of the Jazz I have encountered. It is my hope that I can turn on at least a handful of those visiting a site down a similar path of enlightenment. I know, very modest of me!

Aside from writing the occasional record review, I am involved in Manchester based promotion Fat Out Till You Pass Out, but on a variety of outsider music, from crushing doom metal to otherworldly psychedelia.

I am an active musician in a variety of projects (mainly experimental guitar music,) touring and recording as regularly as possible. If your remotely interested in hearing some of these projects, let alone anything.
