It’s been busy since the summer and I forgot to tell you all about it.
Since my last post, I’ve been writing bits and bobs for The Quietus. First up, I interviewed one of my all time favourite bands, Lightning Bolt, about their album Fantasy Empire and the pains of being known.
I also reviewed the National Gallery’s Soundscapes exhibition.
And I also contributed to this Visions review – it’s still London’s best festival. Like if Field Day were inside and not populated by horrible, horrible humans.
I interviewed one of my musical heroes, the incredible George Clinton of Parliament/Funkadelic, a few months ago. Here’s the resulting Baker’s Dozen for the Quietus, in which he talks about 13 of his favourite records.
Issue number 3 of the fantastic and sometimes surreal Buffalo Zine (that is more like a book) is now available to buy here. I was one of the contributing editors for this edition, which includes an interview with designers Viktor & Rolf. The issue examines childhood and adolescence. A shiny bildungsroman, if you will.
I wrote about this gross bicycle that looks like a naked woman for Mpora. I got angry and quoted Grayson Perry.
