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!

I saw Robert Rental and The Normal on their 1979 tour with Stiff Little Fingers and I could have sworn there was more than two of them. Funny thing memory. Remember they were interesting though

I used to have a 1978 UK vinyl release of this - lost in a move - in Gray vinyl, but it also came with a 7 inch single of "Come Back Johnny" in a picture sleeve, and also a Devo badge. Anyone seen that?

Looks like being one of the best records of 2020. Nubya Garcia is really expanding the depth and breadth of her playing and her compositions. Seriously good. Very pretty green splattered vinyl too

Something wrong with this pressing. I have to run up the speed to over 34RPM for it to sound even half decent but it still sounds as though its a cassette being played on a player running out of batteries. No - its not my equipment. It just sounds awful
