The Riotous Brothers

Some of you will already know my fondness for Insurgence Records, and my joy at the news that Randy (part of the Insurgence crew) has also set up his own label, Rebel Time Records, with co-conspirator Phil Broadcast Zero. I’ve already reviewed their early releases, but I recently got a bundle from Randy with everything […]

Seed The World

Right about now is one of my favourite times in the garden. It may not be at its ‘prettiest’ anymore in the eyes of some but I behold things with a slightly different focus. Not only is there plenty of food to be cropping but there are also plenty of seeds to collect. Free seed […]

Fruity Towers

I love strawberries. But only fresh picked and in season, when they’re absolutely bursting with juice and flavour. Not only are they at their most pleasing on the mouth, they’re also the perfect additive to a fine vodka*.

The problem is, strawberries need space (albeit not much), and space is at a premium in my […]

Corrupted Ambitions

I received a lovely email from Chris Willshire (the force behind the ‘You’ve Heard It All Before’ comp) about the upload:

Thanks very much for adding the downloads to the Crass Covers compilation “You’ve Heard It All Before” (appreciate as I’ve no longer a copy myself other than on the DAT master and a shoddy […]

Carrot, Lentil and Citrus Soup (And An Apology)

First off, I seem to have missed a week. I thought today was the first Monday of the month. Seems I was wrong. Sorry. I haven’t been slacking, in fact I’ve been far busier than normal and am only about halfway trhough getting shit together for this month’s posts. There will be music, bugs and […]

Going Potty

The pot. A humble vessel for dirt and seed and the foundation for the glory that follows. But pots can cost money, and money […]

Punks With Gardens

I’ve been a keen gardener pretty much for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, I spent happy summer days on the allotment with an old retired couple who were neighbours in our block of flats, as well as loads of time in my gran and grandad’s tiny cottage garden (even […]
