My name is Paul and I live in Nottingham, UK. 

I feel like I am talking to myself here, but I am told that all websites are required to have an About page. 

I am actively involved in a Nottingham based magazine and website called LeftLion and have been its Music Editor since 2008. 

This blog has been going on-and-off and in various incarnations since about 2006. I used to used to use it as a place to copy-and-paste articles that I had penned for various publications such as my university magazine and LeftLion, but that was pretty tedious. 

In the spring of 2014 I decided to delete all of the previous posts and start again. Rip it up and start again, as a Scottish band once sang

Instead of just regurgitating content that has already been published elsewhere, I want to use this as a space where I can write and post about things that I don't necessarily have the opportunity to do so elsewhere. I am thinking of it as essentially a place to practice my writing away from the public gaze. If anyone happens to stumble across this blog and find a post interesting, then great; but I am not imaging having any kind of audience, I just want to write and share things that are on my mind or interest me. 

You can say hello via email or Twitter.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
