Nothing: The Great Dismal

I wrote most of this kind of recently. I think I finished a draft around a month ago. Then I got Covid and so I was only able to finish this off now. There was a fair bit of negativity … Continue reading

The Sea Gypsies: Movements

I cannot remember what this band sounds like. I remember writing this in an attempt at subtly criticising the album. Not sure if it came through. Most of my interview and review work now appears on Culture Eater. My colleague … Continue reading

Napalm Death: Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism

This one took… maybe two hours to edit. I knocked out a really rough draft about two, maybe three weeks ago. Didn’t do anything with it for some reason. Forced myself through editing it earlier today. A lot of it … Continue reading
