From a plane and of a plane

Whilst I still can’t believe I missed my flight back from Munich on Friday, at least I managed to take a few shots going into Heathrow and a couple from the car.

Reading Festival 2010

Not a bad gig for our son Jack to tell people was his first in a few years time. Dad was there when Nirvana played their famous set and he was there when Guns n’ Roses did their best not to!

Great North Run 2010

Great North Run

Congratulations to my wife Rebecca and the 50,000 or so others who completed the Great North Run yesterday! She raised over £400 for Great Ormond Street.

This is what you get

Music lover, poet, horror freak and part-time nerd who spends too much time on his iPhone and PS3. This is where my words lie.

Formerly the lead singer of moderately successful but always controversial goth band Robed in Desire, and now sometime guest singer with punk legends The Tendons, I’m also a regular reviewer for Bedford’s Esquires music venue where I’ve DJ’d on and off since the early 90’s. My specialist areas include goth, metal, alternative and 80’s. And The Doors; big time!

I’m also a published poet, although Im perhaps now better known for more outspoken texts, some if which may well appear here along with the old poetry!

My horror obsession spans a collection of thousands of movies and books, but can be neatly summed up by my all time favourites Plague of the Zombies from Hammer and the words of MR James. More is sure to be revealed here.

Since I first got a Commodore VIC20 I’ve been hooked on gaming, a passion reignited first by the appearance of the PS3 and then set ablaze again by my iPhone! And for the time being that probably concludes most of what you’ll get here.

Until next time, I leave you with a picture of me and the wife at a friend’s wedding last week, just before I did my first ever acoustic track to a live audience, with a bit of help from The Velvet Underground…
