What Did I Make To The “Urban Animals” Gig In Leeds?

Yay, date night! But, it almost never happened. In this blog post, I hope to say a bit about the event at the Brudenell that me and Kathryn attended and then I will get on to why it nearly never happened. I will work in retrospect from the headliners to the opening...

First Big Weekend Of The Summer 2019

Summing up on a Monday evening - it was quite a great w/e. The first big weekend of the summer 2019. All the good things happened and then Monday spat in its face. So, I am taking time out of my Monday to remind me of the good things that happened on the weekend....

Easter Sunday Photo Dump

Easter Sunday kicked off at 4am. Nothing too new in my books - I can be an early riser, but that depends on what time I went to bed the night before (in this case it was 5pm). We caught the bus out to Ripon and we were picked up by my Dad. Heading out to the farm we...

Meeting An Old Friend For The First Time

Thursday started slowly. There were the usual demo submissions from Singer / Songwriters to my Noise label and then I was out of the door. I was heading to York with Scooby. We caught the train to York, with Scooby having to run the final part of his solo journey to...

My Favourite World Music Show

My favourite world music show is Sound Of Wonder. It is presented by a good friend and, I admit, I am the producer of it. We rock up to Creao Studio every week and make the podcast. The podcast gets played on American Radio, on K-BOG in Oregon. It is fun to do and...

Thinking Of An Inking

So ... I am tentatively looking to get a design tattooed on myself by a local artist. I have the design and I stand by it - it is a strong design. One I put my name to. There is a story behind it and I am writing up here as part of the journey. Years ago (2014) I saw...

I’m Listening To Phenomena: The Forgotten Works

I'm listening to a recording of Phenomena: The Forgotten Works. And, I'd like to tell you why you should listen to it too. Please listen to the recording before it is taken down from the web. I admit, I was tipped off to it (and positively encouraged to listen to the...

Well, The Workshop Was Fun

A few days ago, on the Saturday, I ran a workshop. This was quite big for me - but, it was made easy by the people I was running it for. I ran a workshop as Stinky from Stinky's Riso Press. And, it was the first time I stood in front of a group of people, with any...

February Round-Up 2019

How was your February? Mine was mint! I had a Birthday - turned 38 - and I got up to a whole heap of stuff. All the Funs were had. I am branching out in business and I will shortly acquire a new Riso Printer. What is Riso? A Riso is a 'mechanical screen-printing...

Birthday Weekend 2019

So, this weekend I turned another year closer to 40 - two years off it as of late. Yet, I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin. I am loving being in my thirties and more power to those who say life begins at 40 - I am one person who is looking forward to...
