Music Journalism

I’m now a music journalist for Penny Black Music (as well as being a web designer/developer, home tattooist, raconteur, artist etcetera).

I’ve only done 4 reviews so far, and I don’t have my own section on the site yet, but I’m really enjoying it and I’ve very grateful to have been given this opportunity.

For now you can check out my stuff at these links:

Joana and The Wolf

Arabrot – Solar Anus

Twilight Singers – Dynamite Steps

The Wild Mercury Sound – Miss Frost (single)

I find it quite funny (and typical of my life in general) that one of the first albums I had to review was called Solar Anus by a Norwegian “noise metal” band.

The music video above is by another Scandinavian metal act, Lordi. They won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006. The plot of the video seems to be this: Lordi materialise in a school gym and kill a load of cheerleaders by playing their music. A Lordi fan – a “true believer” – is spared. Lordi then resurrect the dead cheerleaders as zombies, but they don’t do any cool dancing like in Thriller. Nice.
