My first ever job was as a journalist on the South Manchester Reporter. I spent most of the 1990s writing news stories and music features. These days, I'm a journalist for Electronic Sound magazine, including my 'Banging On' column about everything from dancing sperm whales to robotic armageddon.

You can read my Electronic Sound columns here. Some need subscription and some are free to access.
