Wolves And Thieves


Tonight found me and S at the Institute for Contemporary Arts (ICA) for the gig to launch Goldheart Assembly’s debut album, ‘Wolves And Thieves‘.

Easter Experiment

I have few plans for the Easter break this year so for a bit of fun I asked colleagues to select 3 letters of station names in Zone 2 (and one in Zone 3 because there weren’t any closer in!) to guide me towards destinations over the next 5 days, where I will take a […]


One early morning last week I was fortunate enough to be invited along to a briefing breakfast (at the swanky  Smiths of Smithfield no less) about a new lifestyle website that has launched today, Keynoir.

We at home are being asked to do the same thing, so I will be sitting in darkness for […]
