Cloud Nothings @ Electric Ballroom, London, 01.12.2014

London is a much changed city from the one I left in 2004 for a one year stay in Australia that, out of nowhere, has turned into a full decade. So many of the venues and pubs have gone – from the Intrepid Fox to Bull & Gate to the never-ending Tottenham Court Road redevelopment […]

Women Should Be In Charge: Flame Proof Moth @ ICA, London, 20.05.11

Proper blues music is simple, heartfelt songs about real and universal experiences — blokes and lasses singing about the letter they just received, the bottle of whisky they just downed and gave them a sore head, or the lover who just left them.

Another One Of Those Days: Everett True’s July 2000 journal

I want a little glamour around my presence: glamour is the last thing I possess right now. I don’t know if I’ll ever recapture that mood again.
