Christmas in Oxford

Oxford is well known for its summer days. The lazy stretching lawnspunts quietly floating down the Cherwell and the blossoming Magnolia trees lining the college walls.

However, it is at Christmas, when air is cold, the alleyways empty and the sound of practicing choirs call out from behind stone walls, that Oxford’s magic truly comes to life.

And what better way to enjoy it, than biking to the Rickety Press, breakfast at the wonderful Oxfork or dining in the delights of the new Turl Street Kitchen.

On Tour with Chad Valley – America

This Autumn I joined Chad Valley on the last leg on his US Tour with the brilliant Active Child. From Portland to LA up to San Fransisco and back again, our bright blue Toyota Corolla sped up the Big Sur, through desert and in and out of valet parking at Paula Abdul’s.

Food in America is a convenience. Like everyone says, it’s big and mostly involves burritos. I actually had some of the worst food of my life, chile dog, corn dog, any sort of dog named goods in particular. But on the sunny side up, if you manage to find the right places, they are so good. So, in no particular order:

In and Out Burger, California
Voodoo Doughnuts, Portland Oregon
Macaroons from Little Door, LA
Seaweed Snacks, Trader Joe’s, San Fran
Thank you to all the wonderful people who had us to stay. America, I love you.

Creamfields / Hell on Earth






Last weekend, Chad Valley and myself embarked on Creamfields for a 30 minute set and some stone baked pizza. We left after the 30 minute set deciding to avoid the teenage pill poppers, mud soaked beauty queens, aging ravers, gurning rude boys.. the pizza was however excellent.

Garrison Ford

Liverpool has quickly become one of my favourite cities, from the Liver Birds, John Lewis Pjamas to the Eleanor Rigby Hotel above the strip joint, made best of all by seeing the wonderful Jamie Galliford.  Jamie and I collaborated at Saint Martins under the guise of Garrison Ford, resulting in a lot of black coffee and a rather sexual film about mayonnaise.

Jamie is not only a very talented artist, but makes the most amazing bacon sandwiches ever at the brilliant Bold Street Cafe.
