New noise, new frontiers

A conversation with J. Willgoose, Esq. of Public Service Broadcasting Hilda Matheson. A name synonymous with inventing talk radio.

OFF! – Re-wiring the circuitry

“I’m completely and wholeheartedly having the time of my life with what I’m doing right now” – Keith Morris Dedicated to the memory of DH Peligro The female butterfly finds its plant, settles and lays its eggs.

La dolce vita – Mykki Blanco basks in the holiday sun

It’s the end of September. Summer nights are closing in. Clubs are getting ready for their closing parties.

The Ramonas – 100 Club, London – 19th August 2023

Du Blonde Message Deleted – out now on Daemon TV It’s a joy to have Du Blonde back.

Skeletal Family – Light From The Dark

With Anneka Latta, arguably the strongest singer they have ever had, especially live, “Light From The Dark”  is the 6th studio album from the hugely influential Post-Punk/Gothic band Skeletal Family. A 10 track, dare I say, masterpiece that stands very comfortably alongside their impressive back-catalogue, written at Paul Weller’s Back Barn Studios over a 2 […]

The Butterfly Effect of Fuck Money

By Giles Sibbald Around 60 years ago during a weather pattern simulation experiment, Edward Lorenz stumbled on a significant finding – that small, ostensibly unconnected events can have large consequences for weather patterns. To give an example, he argued that a butterfly flapping its wings in Hong Kong could cause a tornado in New York. […]


And so London Field’s fucked sky is sealed  As Martin/John Self is blue-pencilled, returning him  To Sally, his sister, his father and to Christopher Hitchens,  His friend. And dead from the same disease too.  This is the sort of thing which would have befallen  Keith Talent, if he had been supported by the spell  Of […]
