One thing you need to know about me is, I’m really bad at updating my website.
SO, in last month’s MOJO, I raved at length about Natalie Prass’s new album, The Future And The Past, which every home should own, and also chatted with her about Nashville, The Carpenters and how the album is a subtle, powerful political statement.
And in Kerrang! in May, I wrote a piece about the closure of historic music venues, in which I was assisted by many sterling souls who work night and day to keep music alive, in a very real sense.
And, most exciting of all for me (I’ve only been chasing this story for five years, he’s only the most exciting and prolific rock artist around right now), in the current issue of MOJO I have a big feature on John Dwyer and his magnificent Oh Sees. Please buy a copy. Magazines rule, and this one also contains excellent pieces on Millie Jackson, Echo & The Bunnymen, Wayne Kramer and David Bowie.
See you in a few years when I next remember to update this shebeen.
