I've a wide taste in music but especially modal jazz, reggae (I do some reggae DJ'ing), drum n bass, British and Australian punk, new wave and indie, soul, funk and lots inbetween

I am a reggae moderator and happy to give any help or advice on reggae submissions - just email me.

Also do some writing about boxing at 15rounds.com

None of my music is for sale. Cheers!

The Kerri Chandler remixes are extraordinary and take the original tracks onto a different level

Hope there is a writer's credit for George Harrison on The Only Way as its a fairly blatant expropriation of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".

Nice beats but side A is totally ruined by pointless and off key saxophone noodling

my copy must be the repress as bought it a shop in Japan rather than a gift. Should this be a different version?

This is a bit disappointing. I enjoyed the first Mr Blue release a lot but this is formulaic. Shame

Backing vocals on Jah War are by members of Misty in Roots - not surprisingly given that the song talks about the police beating of one of the Misty in Roots collective, Clarence Baker. "Pocky" is undoubtedly Walford "Poco" (or Poko) Tyson. Bertie is ... See full review

Just listening back to this for the first time in 8 years (because AIR are playing here in Singapore next week) and this is a better record than I thought. Moon Safari was such an iconic record, and one that still feels relevant today, that the rest of ... See full review

Everything a Thievery record should be. Its warm, it washes over you, it brightens your dark corners. Breaking new ground? - not really. But its wholly satisfying and relaxing

First side is 33 and second is 45. And ........... why? very irritating means I have to mark up the label to remind me when playing

Tanzania is an early contender (as I write this in February 2017) for Top 10 tunes of the year. But the rest of the record is pleasant enough too. Yes I know it was just about released in 2016 but for me this will be a 2017 record
posted a review of Dusky (2) - Outer. 8 months ago
Most disappointing record of 2016 unfortunately. I've loved many Dusky 12" but it just doesn't work over 12 tracks. And the collaborations are especially egregious. Every time the Wiley track comes on, I race to the turntable to skip it. It's just ... See full review

Had the misfortune to see them do a live show for I Heart Radio. To be fair they played from 90 mins, which is more than you usually get at these corporate gigs. But I've rarely spent 90 more irritated minutes. I just had zero idea what they were trying ... See full review

Is it vinyl? I dropped my copy (before I'd played it) from a sitting position to the floor and it shattered into pieces

Comment re music only as my copy is fine. But damn this is a depressing record. Not surprising given what's happened to Nick in the last 12 months, but this is the inside of a confessional

Hmm. I'm aware of the controversy around the ownership of these tracks. And grateful for the additional disc of original cuts. But I feel slightly dirty buying this, with Scientist's role minimised to a bland "mixed by" credit on the label. For me, this ... See full review

In my opinion this is Ed Kuepper's best album, with Ed's guitar lines getting as close to psychedelia as he ever really did, particularly on the title track, "King of Vice" and "The Way I Made You Feel". And although "Everything I've Got Belongs To You" ... See full review
