I have written reviews, interviews and articles for alternative music publications Meltdown, Kaleidoscope and Starvox.net. Highlights included interviewing Nod from Fields of the Nephilim, Fernando from Moonspell, The Ghost of Lemora and Waterglass.
I was a music reviewer for the Guardian series of local newspapers covering most of Surrey and south London. The editors were open-minded enough to allow me to bring reviews of the following bands to the Home Counties: The Cure, The The, New Model Army, Waterglass, Seventh Harmonic, Catastrophe Ballet, This Ascension, The Gathering, Lacuna Coil, Duran Duran, All About Eve, Flowing Tears, Akumu, The Faces of Sarah, Faith and Disease, Claire Voyant, Emma Conquest, HIM, The Last Dance, Love Like Blood, Burning Gates, Rhea's Obsession, Moonspell, Last Rites, Tiamat, Black Tape For A Blue Girl, The Shroud, Stan Ridgway, Mark Eitzel, The Ghost of Lemora, Lupine, Belisha, which gives you an idea of the sort of thing I like to listen to.
I'm rarely happier than when lying on the sofa, with a good book, new CD, cup of tea and the sun streaming through the window.
