He is the editor of one of the UK’s biggest music culture website, Louder Than War which is also now a magazine and has written several best selling music books including a biog of the Stone Roses and an oral history of punk. He is also a radio and TV regular and has recently been filming a series of interviews for Lush with people like Stewart Lee, Shaun Ryder and Caroline Lucas.
