Things I'm up to

Writing about gadgets and tech for the Financial Times’s HTSI magazine. Bits and bobs about the world of tech for The National. Copywriting for MTF Labs and many others. Producing a new album by Spearmint, and tracks for a new compilation album for Lush’s Handmade Sounds series. Monthly column for Prog Magazine. Collating recollections of my musical history in blog form. Playing with Scritti Politti in summer 2022 and beyond. Performing at Snow Station Vadsø in the Arctic, 2023. Working on a new album with Kenny Process Team, and an album of 101 Classic TV Adverts for Dream Themes. Oh, and I wrote, recorded & released a disco album about Brexit which (incredibly) reached the UK Top 75, and a follow up which didn’t.
