About Me

Immersed in a stinking mire of dense guitar treacle, I'll tremble across the bedsit floorboards to rifle through a curvatured stack of gleaming laptoppery, picking up a mould-speckled avant jazz platter on the way, all the while attempting to translate these worrying eardrum vibrations into semi-coherent sentences. Right now I'm also writing for The Wire, Downbeat, Jazzwise, Songlines, London Jazz News & The Brooklyn Rail. I've also contributed regularly to The Guardian, The Independent, the BBC Music website, Mojo, Q, The Gramophone, The Quietus, The Arts Desk and Amazon.co.uk.
