Welcome one and all (me included)


let’s begin by thanking all of you who have come for a wee peek at what’s on offer – as of yet, very little…

I’m assuming you’ve either been misdirected by your search engine (its fault, not mine, so don’t whinge) or you’ve been on the receiving end of an emotional blackmail-esque episode to ‘show you’re a real friend/blood-relation’. Shouldn’t really call it that though, ’emotional blackmail’. Bit emotive. Probably unfairly cheapen people’s opinion of my powers of persuasion; I don’t rely soley on blackmail (emotional or any kind – not fussy), I’m also a big fan of ‘friendly bullying: when peer pressure gets violent‘, one of my current favourites, short-listed for the booker .

Coming Soon: (if someone’s gonna publish ’em)

  • An IBIZA special: articles to feature on Data Transmission (online dance music magazine) covering the opening of Ibiza’s two most musically rewarding clubnights: Space (1st June 12:00pm) and Circo Loco@DC10 (2nd June, 12:00). Space will as always feature the biggest names: Fat Boy Slim, Groove Armada and Steve Lawler among them; while Circo Loco will open with the same gang who tore the roof off last year’s closing: Tania Vulcano and Clive Henry return alongside Romania’s banging contribution to the dance scene, ARPIAR (RPR – they’re just being clever) Soundsystem. Also loitering around the line-up will be Loco Dice and Mathias Tanzman, not exactly what one would refer to as ‘small fry’
  • Festival reviews – this is the summer of love-to-go-abroad-but-ya-broke, which sees England bursting at the seams to contain the staggering volume of festivals showcasing this summer. All depends on blagging skills and sheer charm to gain entry
  • Music artist reviews should hopefully feature of up and coming names in the game
  • A selection of semi-fictitious short stories… get some of those creative juices onto paper (yes, i know that’s what most blokes spend most days doing, but we’re talking about different creative juices, and A4 not tissue paper – or a sock in some people’s case. they will remain anonymous – for now)
  • Articles already written (and some published) from last autumn in Barcelona, where I was ‘researching’ v. v. important classified things.
  • Any other creativeness that is kind enough to dislodge itself from my self-conscious, float up to the the surface, bob around for a while, and wait for me to take note of it. At which point I’m hoping I will. And if not, you won’t see it on these pages. shame really.
  • Any other uncanny ideas I can persuade people to publish. Hopefully involving a trip to the Caribbean?

All comments welcome, as is debate (if we get some serious articles up)

Last plan… get some music up here too. A mix a week, or maybe just a selection of tunes – or if i’m feelin really lazy i.e. that pesky local bully’s just jabbed both my legs and arms with local anesthetic – then just a recommendation.

Don’t forget to come back…. I know where you and your gran live.
