Happy 2013 everyone. I hope you’ve all had a cracking Christmas break and that your return to work/uni/school isn’t too painful. It’s going to be an exciting year for me. In about five months I will have finished my university course and I’ll be out in the “real world” looking for someone to employ me. […]

The Harrowing Adventures Of…

I recently took a trip to Sweden with my band. Here are some pictures for you to ogle at, as well as a song that I listened to repeatedly whilst recovering from many crippling hangovers.

Day Tripper

A flash of light passes by the window every couple of meters. The carriage sways from side to side, and the airs warm smell is lingering.

I Think the Record’s Stopped

My fingers are getting sore, I’ll be here for hours, I’m pretty sure the girl opposite is flirting. I can’t make my mind up, look at the records that flicker in front of me, or look at her. I commit to the music, I always do. Los Campesinos!, Local Natives, so many potential purchases within […]

Another Stupid Video

Isn’t the internet wonderful? Where else can you watch video after video of pointless shit and class it as entertainment? Just the other day I was watching Tron Cat. It’s a video of a normal cat covered in glow sticks whilst a man sings tron cat, brilliant. The only thing better than wasting your time […]
