Tomashi Jackson Collaboration
Artist Tomashi Jackson's new exhibition, entitled 'Silent Alarm', responds to histories of police violence in London and LA. I created a new piece of music to accompany the exhibition, which is featured on a behind-the-scenes video hosted by the Pilar Corrias Gallery.

Film Review: 'Isabel' (1968)

Repeatedly bewitched by Geneviève Bujold's performance in Paul Almond's 'Isabel', I was moved to write about it. "I don’t know if Isabel can climb out of the frame and save herself, but I’ll want to watch her try, over and again."

Review: Trail of Dead in Oxford, 2000

My vintage review of ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead at the Zodiac, Oxford, 2000. "Some six songs in you realise that not only is the ship going to hold together, it's going to plough triumphantly intact into the docks and split the city in half."

Young Legionnaire | Lockdown Session #117.08.20

The Noise of Justice

"It’s easy for music executives to reach for the platitudes of the moment without any genuine attempt to reckon with bias and racism. Less easy for such gatekeepers to acknowledge they’ve pioneered the self-same technologies of the surveillance state."

Blade Runner 2049 & the Afterlife of Culture24.07.20

"The past must scream at the audience from the screen, expecting us to whoop along in a performative re-experiencing of what came before. We are dreaming ourselves, and our memories of the great stories and cinematic moments of the bygone are just implants."

Jigsaw Youth

A fundraising effort for shuttered music venues during lockdown. "These spaces have provided opportunities, communities and platforms for all kinds of expression. All of them deserve the chance to survive."

An Anatomy of the Corporate Body

"The ‘corporate body’ is a way to describe so much of how our lives are organised in 2020: our fingertips constantly hovering over the logos of big brands, our choices governed by corporate logic, an increasing sense of the futility of the individual voice."

What the Narrative on Tech 'Backlash' Gets Wrong10.10.19

"As long as we are swept along in a vision of technology as a compulsory control on our lifestyle choices - an opt in without a realistic opt-out — then backlash remains the tokenistic moralising that some already see it as."

How Change was Replaced by a Designed Illusion30.06.18

"The great triumph of handheld technology is the lie it conceals. Ever-present and portable, it draws our attention downwards, off-wards, at right-angles to the march of life before us. As long as our heads are bent, we’re captive, placing faith in an impermanent, implied plane of living..."

Rules of the Future
A limited edition risographed booklet exploring technology, consent and the future
The Automation of Listening20.02.18

"It’s the hegemony of the algorithm that counterculture should be taking aim at. What is an algorithm if not an updated version of the faceless, unaccountable cultural power that punk took on?"

A card game based on reactionary politicians and personalities
Terror Capitalism

"Terror-capitalism has a gun trained on you, a foot suspended above the accelerator pedal of a truck as you walk by. It’s here to let you know that you’re a target, a potential victim — that you’re unwitting collateral in the combat of ideas going on around you."
