I wonder if I’d still be playing music if I hadn’t met the Wah Wahs. I wonder how different my life would be – what would I be doing right now instead of writing about them? Probably sleeping, it’s pretty late. I’ve had an crazy weekend and I’m in desperate need of a day off. On Friday we […]Read more "Basic 28/2"
14/11/2016 Yesterday, people were killed throughout Paris in places of relaxation and entertainment. Today, it is impossible for me to think about anything except for that; there’s nothing else I can do apart from think, and feel. I don’t think that today is a day for analysing or for figuring out why people are the […]Read more "Paris"
I have heard the words, “you’re a great drummer… for a girl” at almost every gig I have ever played at.

Dr. Alan put his medical skills into action for the first time when we were playing music in the flat . Mindlessly, Jiggy shrugged at what was happening outside. ‘Someone’s decked it.’ We looked outside and people were beginning to crowd around the man lying on the pavement. Alan raced down the stairs to take a […]Read more "#hero 16/2/16"
Our band, The Wah Wahs fully formed in the summer of 2015, debuting our first gig as a 4 in Laings (come to think of it, Jiggy wasn’t there). I started level two of Fine Art at DJCAD the following September, and six months and fortysomething gigs on, I have decided to start documenting my life, […]Read more "The Drawer, The Doctor, the Dentist and the Dick"
