I had the opportunity to interview Thomas Cohen for the Quietus recently. After some great feedback I’m gonna go ahead and say I’m really proud of it, because everyone seems to have got the impression of him that I was aiming for: mainly that he was extremely generous.
An interview with Ulrika Spacek for tQ.
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.
Hi there! Recently I have done two things.
Firstly, I spoke to Spector (above) about their new album for The Quietus. It was one of the most interesting interviews I’ve ever done and I’d recommend you read it for musings on grime, Drake and vol-au-vents.
Secondly, I wrote a piece about where is best to watch Friday’s partial solar eclipse from for Mpora. Answer: Go north.
Wow, I really have been busy. Along with my Observer follies, I also forgot to post this interview I did with Savages and Bo Ningen for The Quietus. They were definitely the coolest people I have ever met.
I did a wee series of interviews with up-and-coming designers showing at London Fashion Week for Vice.

I’ve been doing a couple of days a week at Cooler, which is an awesome website about actions sports for women. They gave me the opportunity to write a piece that I’ve wanted to pen for a very long time – The Women of London Bike Polo.
Many thanks to Nik, Fuchsia and Maddie for their time (and their poses), and to the LHBPA for making me feel like part of the family for the last few years, despite the fact I’ve only played polo, like, twice.
