Biography

I've worked in the music business for what seems like centuries, mainly as an A&R person (Warners, RCA, V2) but also as an editor and writer (AOL Music, The Guardian). I've written a number of books including The Art Of The LP and Pink Flag. Currently, I placate my obsession with records by penning features for Long Live Vinyl and writing and presenting music columns for BBC Front Row.
