Mass Echoes & Dust Update

It’s been a while since I posted here due to moving to London, but I have been busy! Here are the plethora of album reviews, gig reviews and interviews I’ve done since the move.

Features & Interviews


Echoes of the Past: Coil


A lengthy look at Coil’s discography through the lens of Albert Camus’ The Rebel. tl;dr: I’m a nerd.

Interview – Thighpaulsandra


Writing the above piece got me in touch with Thighpaulsandra of Coil and other fame, and I was able to interview him for his latest release The Golden Communion. We had a great chat.

From My Parents: Cameron Pikó


A bit of emotional honesty in looking back at how my taste in music was formed.

Live Shows


Guapo & HIRVIKOLARI live at The Lexington, 3rd September


A splendid gig to start my prog-filled journey in London.

King Crimson at Hackney Empire, London. 7th September


Easily a life highlight. Being able to see my favourite band live was a glorious experience.

Steve Hackett at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. October 7th


Another prog great to cross off the list, and a great gig.

Two thirds of KoMaRa are back again with another great avant-garde soundscape.
