Thomas Truax in Croydon!

Thomas Truax played a small gig in Croydon, unbelievably, and a small crowd of faithful music fans were so grateful to Joyzine for putting such an event on there. Scream Lounge has so much potential for more good names to follow.

Thomas Truax was as off-kilter as expected. He cavorted around a great deal. His home-made instruments were things of pure beauty.

I have reviewed the gig for the September interim issue, which is out tomorrow, fingers crossed. For now, some rubbish photos! The night was very blue, and Thomas musically forewarned us of a blue moon due tomorrow night!

Interim issue - August. Now printed

Interim issue for August is out now - a mini 'zine that is free as long as I can make it so. I will make these mini zines in between the bigger, more in depth issues, as and when I fancy until next main issue is ready. I will drop off batches at gig venues and the like. If you'd like to stock issues, please get in touch.

I hope to make Paypal available on here soon, but for now, please just email - details to the right (on profile page).

I write about whatever takes my fancy as a music fan, not overly conscious of paying strict attention to timeliness / current / new bands, trends/genres, etc, that's the fun of being a music fan so that's how I write. The idea is to focus on the writing, so there is no 'style' to the look of the thing, it's all in the content.

I am currently writing the interim issue for August/September. Watch this space!
