Mantua Festival Photos

Remarkably I've gotten photos of this weekend's Mantua Festival sorted out much faster than Glastonbury photos. A thoroughly enjoyable festival, which, despite some heavy rain before and on the Friday, there was plenty of sunshine over the next couple of days. I have some amusing sumo wrestling videos to post up as well. Read and […]

Back from holidays

Well I've returned from a brilliant 2 weeks away from it all. Glastonbury was amazing, photos to come later, and heading down to Brighton afterwards was definitely an excellent idea. Though tired, I think I feel way more relaxed than I would have coming straight home. Not that the trip home wasn't troubled with a […]

Logo Design fun

I've been trying to help out a friend of mine who's record label is in dire need of a logo, and has been for a long long time. It's sounding like he's feeling desperate enough to delay some releases so that he can pay someone to design a logo. I figured I'd give it a […]

Beekeeping causes me a headache

Well, it's a slightly misleading title, but I figured I've been working on this long enough to rant a little bit. A good friend of mine, Jamie Hannigan, has directed a short film called "The Beekeeper" and he was good enough to ask me to work with him again as sound editor (and to use […]

Song of the Day: City of Styrofoam Cups

Jinx Lennon – Know Your Station Gouger Nation – 02 – city of styrofoam cups This is a little piece of genius. Jinx Lennon is an Irish troubadour, a poet of the streets, he's raw and he really believes what he's singing about. He's best seen playing live, where his passion shines through. He bursts […]
