Boogey nights in Berlin

November 3rd, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Blogs · Prancer

I haven’t written for ages because I had to finish my masters dissertation and then move to Berlin the very next day. In classic Chris style I coordinated this epic manoeuvre with working at summer camp the whole of August, moving out of my flat in London, making a new zine, trying to battle [...]

Too posi, too preachy?

July 4th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Articles · Blogs · Prancer

“We’re gonna OWN THAT BITCH!”
My friend Jon is sitting braced in the back seat of a car filled with people and various musical equipment. It’s a Sunday night and we are racing down the main road in Putney chasing the number 37 nightbus so that we can get ahead of it and I can [...]

Astpai Interview

May 12th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Articles · Interviews

Astpai are a four-piece melodic hardcore punk band from Austria, producing music that deviates from the predictable patterns common to the genre, while writing insightful lyrics about matters of the heart and the head. As much as I love all things Austrian, it seemed to me that things had gone a bit quiet since [...]

Essay Avoidance pt. 1

May 3rd, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Blogs · Prancer

I’ve been leaving the house recently… It’s really quite exciting.  The best part of having a broken leg is that people feel really sorry for you and come over and do nice things like cook, shop, watch TV, take you to the pub, help you onto the bus and get you involved in weird boredom [...]

Tales from the sofa

April 6th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Blogs · Prancer

It took me a long time to mentally prepare myself to write this post. The irony of the last thing I wrote being about roller derby was not lost on me as I sat for seconds and minutes and hours and days and weeks on end on my bum with an elevated leg and [...]

The Rookie Run-Down

March 7th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Blogs · Prancer

People keep asking me about this roller derby sport I recently started, so I’m posting something I wrote for a zine being made by girls from London Roller Girls. It’s about the rookie/beginner boot camp which started in January of this year, which took place over four weeks and was designed to determine whether we could continue with the LRG training programme.

Vanilla Pod

January 24th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I recently went to see Vanilla Pod play at the Fighting Cocks in Kingston.  While there I remarked on the following points to people I saw:  Seeing Vanilla Pod in Kingston seems like being in a time-warp (as this is my home town and the site of many Vanilla Pod viewings, just not in the [...]

Alkaline Trio

January 24th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Alkaline Trio are one of my favourite bands. When I was 16, I got a friend to draw me an Alkaline Trio tattoo design on tracing paper, which I planned to get tattooed across my shoulders in whatever studio would turn a blind eye to inking under-age girls. While I am quite relieved that my [...]

Misery Monday

January 24th, 2010 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Blogs · Prancer

Statistically this past Monday, the 18th January, is the most depressing day of the year. Normally I don’t buy into this kind of hype, but this year I’m a fully paid-up member. Aside from the chest infection, not seeing the sun in weeks and being dumped in the rain in a city I [...]

Confessions of Lonely Londoner..or simply a moan

December 13th, 2009 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Blogs · Prancer

A rental van, rented family members and a day spent in the steamy polluted airs of South London. My post-Austria life crammed into boxes, bags and crates. My new home in the organic oasis of East Dulwich echoed emptily as my brother and I lifted furniture up the narrow stairways and along the hall. I [...]
