'Aug Stone Champions...' ran on popbollocks.com for six weeks. Read me enthuse over Martin Newell, Dolly Mixture, él Records, Girlfrendo, David Devant & His Spirit Wife, and J. P. Donleavy. I will be back for more at a later date.
"Little Universes: An Interview with Roman Muradov" - I love Roman's work. It's lovely, incredibly stylish and inventive, and you never know where it's going next. We had a very interesting conversation for The Comics Journal about books, art, life, and The Fall.
"Martin Newell's 'The Greatest Living Englishman' 25 Years On" - I spoke with Martin Newell, Andy Partridge, Dave Gregory, and Humbug label boss Kevin Crace about how they all came together to make this 1993 lo-fi classic. This is one of my favourite pieces that I've ever written. A great subject and everyone was a pleasure to speak with, full of stories and very generous with their time.
"Vantra Eden - The Healthiest Restaurant In London?" - I had a great talk with Phun, Vantra's owner, about his philosophy of life and eating for the Happy Cow site. I very much enjoyed writing this, the food there is delicious and Phun was very generous with his time.
"Drawn From Life: The Archies - Alex Segura and Joe Eisma on the New Comic Book Series" - I interviewed 2/3 of The Archies team about the new series which has CHVRCHES making a guest appearance in issue #3. This piece originally appeared in Under The Radar's Fall 2017 issue.
The Counterforce Podcast is now a go! A great song is like that feeling you get when you first kiss someone you really fancy. The Counterforce Podcast brings you the best in music and art that has been criminally overlooked. Lengthy, entertaining interviews so far with Martin Newell, Carla J. Easton, and Tyson Meade.
