Begging For Pussy With George Clinton


Wow. Over a year since I last posted anything... Writing books will do that to you.Here's a piece I wrote for the awesome a couple of years ago; am reposting it here, inspired in part by the tragic death of journalist and screenwriter David Mills, who passed away unexpectedly at the end of last month, and whose excellent blog,, contained

Arthur Russell - Wild Combination


[for MOJO]Wild Combination: A Portrait Of Arthur Russell****PLEXIFILMWarm and insightful documentary traces the beguiling apparition that was Arthur RussellDue to the scant availability of interview footage with Wild Combination’s notoriously shy subject, Arthur Russell seems ghostlike even in this documentary dedicated to his short life and voluminous works; there, but not there. Director Matt

Les Savy Fav


[for PLAN B]Tim Harrington leans back on a metal folding chair, crazed gesticulations possessing his hands, midway through the latest in a series of unlikely tales. His eyes are wild, like his thick, curling-at-the-edges brown beard, or his bedhead-of-all-bedheads blonde hair. His monkish frame clad in pastel shades, he looks like a character from Caddyshack – Rodney Dangerfield’s gregarious and





My first cover piece for The Guardian, revisiting one of my favourite bands of my teenhood, and trying to figure out why they don't rock quite as hard as they used to, and explaining why I think that's a damn shame.



One of my favourite new artists of recent years, maybe he could be one of yours too?



You can't keep a good band down, and for years I've believed Scarce were one of the best. They've reformed, sounding as painfully and beautifully alive as ever, and you can read their tale here.

Fall Out Boy 2008


Another shot at understanding the Fall Out Boy phenomenon, this time with the 08 election and wild times in Barcelona as the backdrop.

When Rock Stars Attack


Alan from Low threw a guitar at our heads, and all I got was this lousy blog.

The Heads


For Plan BThe Heads Dead In The Water (Rooster) Despite possessing such a deep love for noise bestowed with heavilypsychotropic effects, I've always felt something of a fraud whenwriting about psychedelic music, having never personally droppedanything stronger than a couple of valerian to ease jetlag. And yet,I've been familiar with the relationship between contraband chemicals,mind expansion and

Jesu / The Bug


Are you familiar with the music of Justin Broadrick, formerly of Napalm Death, Head Of David, Godflesh, Ice and Techno Animal, currently rocking as Jesu? Or the work of Kevin Martin, AKA GOD, Ice, Techno Animal and now The Bug? You should be. Here's a crash course, published in The Guardian.



A brief history of the man who coined the phrase, 'Black Metal'. From The Guardian.

The Breeders


I love The Breeders so very much. Here's my recent Guardian feature on 'em...

The Monks


Dave Day, singer and banjo player with the remarkable Monks, just passed away. RIP. This was written for the London Lite when the group played the Dirty Water Club last year. What a night... THE MONKS are like The Velvet Underground of the garage-rock scene – few bought their sole album, Black Monk Time, on its release in 1966, but the group have since become an influential rock’n’roll cult.

Begging For Pussy with George Clinton


I interviewed George Clinton last year and he was AWESOME.

Maceo Parker


[for Plan B magazine; meeting Maceo was, as you might imagine, quite a trip, and he was one of the coolest interviewees I've ever had the pleasure of questioning. Long may he blow...]He was, and perhaps still is, the hardest working saxophonist in showbusiness, blowing horn and evading fines with James Brown over several stretches through the 60s, 70s and 80s. Maceo Parker lent his furious bebop

Brian Wilson


[news piece / review from MOJO]September 12th saw Brian Wilson return to the freshly-refurbished Royal Festival Hall – where he had previously debuted Smile and Pet Sounds – for the world premiere of his newest work, a song-cycle written with Wondermint Scott Bennett and long-time collaborator Van Dyke Parks. Entitled That Lucky Old Sun (A Narrative), conceived while Wilson was “in the middle of

Big Dada Records is ten years old! Buy their new Well Deep compilation album and DVD! Then buy everything else they ever released! But first read this.

Oh, hello. You can find my Guardian feature on the wonderful Amerie here

Fall Out Boy


[for Arena... Las Vegas, well, I hated it. The Fall Out boys, however, were lovely. Big shout to Louise Mayne who had to put up with my interminable gloom throughout this trip (seriously, June sucked...)] “EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!” The high-pitched banshee wail is ear-piercing and nigh unbearable. We’re at Nellis Air Force Base in Clark County Nevada, North East of Las
