I'm adam, and yes, we've probably met somewhere before.
 
I write about music, about stuff in the news, and links I find on the 'net. And will comment on them too. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong or correct me or whatever. I know I am not always right. Reasonable, friendly debate is more than welcome, in fact encouraged...!
 
Occasionally I promote stuff. Hell, I'm a DJ. I'll also happily promote other things if I know about them - and if I do, they'll invariably make it onto my events listings.

Ruby - Live at Servant Jazz Quarters, N16 - 03-May 2016

Lesley Rankine's career in music now spans a few decades, and more than a few styles. She first came to prominence in the vicious, no-wave influenced punkish-rock of Silverfish, a fixture of the Camden scene in the early 90s and unusual in their strident politics and just how confrontational they were.
