Profile Information

I do a fortnightly show which I upload onto Mixcloud (link above). I am training to become an IT tutor and have finished my first level of training, looking to do DTTLS next September. I also write (or attempt to). Short stories, spoken word, that kind of thing. Will get round to a full length novel eventually. I'm no expert at this and can only really write when truly inspired. But I guess that goes for all of us eh? Influences include Henry Rollins, Albert Camus, Charles Bukowski, David Foster Wallace, George Orwell, Mikhail Bulgakov, Hunter S Thompson and Ray Bradbury. Recently been checking out the works of Philip K Dick. Mightly impressed and this is coming from a guy who can't stand Sci-Fi.


Big music fan. Far too many to list at present, but some favourite artists include...

Television. Richard Hell, The MC5, John Coltrane, Sun Ra, Sly and the Family Stone, Funkadelic, The Stooges, Black Flag, Soundgarden, The Melvins, Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, Kyuss, Nebula, Can, Kraftwerk, Amon Duul, Guru Guru, The Wipers, Husker Du, The Birthday Party, Dead Meadow, Crystal Antlers, Suicide, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Dinosaur Jr...


Love art too...

Hope you enjoy my writings. :)
