Blue lights and sirens

August 27th, 2009 · posted by An EMD · marked as: Blogs · Blue lights and sirens

For better or worse, this is gonna be a blog centred around my job. It’s probably something you’ve given little or no thought to even though even though it’s a cog in the workings of what keeps this society running (‘you bastard!’ I hear you cry, hold your horses, I mean that in a good way).

Super easy vegan falafel

August 24th, 2009 · posted by xhannahx · marked as: DIY Guides · Food

had a HUGE dislike of falafel after puking it out my nose whist swimming with dolphins in New Zealand (I pretty much ruined everyone’s once in a life time experience by making them duck and dive my floating remains). I decided to overcome this dislike by trying some homemade falafel as that always tastes nicer than processed crap. I was at a show recently and the Art House cafe was doing the food and sure enough it was falafel so I bit the bullet and had some and I’ve been hooked again since!

Publish You

August 24th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Book reviews · Reviews

The admirable goal of the Alternative Press collective is to promote freedom of expression in the area of printed material and to encourage people to be creative. And one of the ways of doing this was with ‘Publish You’, a new anthology bringing together all the different facets of the small press scene, comix, zines, poetry and writing, and showing that they’re not that different after all. It’s a very impressive statement.

Spoonboy gig flier

August 23rd, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

Crazy Arm

August 18th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Because I’m a fool I totally failed to pick up Crazy Arm’s album Born To Ruin and have heard nothing of them until I got my sweaty hands on their single Broken By The Wheel. There’s no other way to say this, but this is very, very good!
