Aug Stone

I write words and music, sometimes together.

Besides songs, I also write about music, books, comics, film, and healthy eating. My work has appeared at The Quietus, Red Bull Music Academy, Under The Radar, Shindig!, The Big Takeover, Dazed magazine, Clash Music online, Southern Pacific Review, and other sites and mags.

My old music blog is First Kiss Lips. I've always said there's something about a really great song that's similar to the feeling you get when you first kiss someone you really fancy. 

My healthy eating blog is Everything's Gone Green, a guide to organic/vegan/gluten-free friendly restaurants around the world. It was named after the New Order song.
