This does not include the billions of fish and other aquatic animals killed annually.

Cranberry, Orange & Port Sauce

Apparently, there's some kind of event coming up that involves scoffing loads of roasted stuff. This is a simple but quite fancy sauce that should go nicely with that sort of thing. It's quick enough to knock up when needed, as long as you've got an hour or two for it to cool before serving.

Noms, Not Bombs!

The people behind the classic vegan punk cookbook 'Soy, Not Oi!'* have got back together to produce a second part in honour of their friend and original SNO! contributor Joel, who sadly died earlier this year.

They're looking for contributions to the new book - anecdotes about the original SNO!, stories about Joel, special features on [...]

Eton? Rifle!

Apparently, there's a bit of an internets fuss going on about a privileged, Eton-educated, little rich kid 'musician' called Frank Turner, who's been 'outed' as a scummy right-wing libertarian who thinks that the BNP are hard left and socialism is dangerous.

I came across him a while back after he appeared to be matey with musicians [...]

McMahon, M., & Simpson, W. - Freedom Through Football Book

Don’t be put off by the title, for this book is about much, much more than football (which, incidentally, is now just one of three sports currently played by the various club teams). The Cowfolk, as they are collectively known, are a community-based sports and social club from the heart of inner-city Bristol, who have [...]

Subhumans, Bristol 02.08.12

I spent a very pleasant few hours in the company of around 100 other folk and three cracking bands a few weeks ago. As well as the ageless Subhumans, support came from local loudmouthed ska-punkers Spanner and the superbly shouty Grand Collapse (my first chance to see 'em in action - very impressed by their [...]

Soap Bodger

Having suddenly realised that lye = sodium hydroxide = caustic soda = drain cleaner (thanks, internets), I decided to have a go at making my own soap using the cold process method. And it turned out to be a piece of piss, albeit a piece of piss that could horribly scar you if you don't [...]

Quickies #1

I don't always have the time / brain capacity to write full-length reviews about everything I get my mitts on, but there are definitely things I want to tell you about. I figured a handful of brief notes every now and again would be a good compromise.
