img_1265I write because it makes my world a tiny bit less damaging. The process of writing is the best part and I guess, reading back on things some time later can be rewarding too.

I’ve lived a busy life as a musician, an academic, a hitchhiker, an oddball. In recent years health issues have curbed some of my more insane spontaneity but now and then I still manage to travel. Most days are an adventure if I’m looking at them the right way, even if they’re just about going to town and having coffee.

I write for me but if anything here resonates with you then it’s for you as well. Which is a wanky and pretentious way of saying I hope you like what you read here.

Original music gets posted here under my stupid band name, The Madlys

I have books you can buy (and some you can read for free) right here.

I review film and TV and such like here.

Facebooking goes on here.
