“I’ve lately been burning up my lonely room courtesy of… four gnarly druids that go by the name (The) Bad Trips… a magnificently Lo-fi Cinemascope instrumental hybrid of early Guru Guru, the Afrika Corps and the Fire Engines (yooz shitting me! I ain’t!), via the C90 meltdown of California’s the Zebra Attack.” – Julian Cope

“Grady ‘n Jeff Grimes is like Mike Bloomfield ‘n Hideki Ishima leadin messrs. Bob Anderson & Gordon Roberts…. through statically charged parallelograms of improvised, psycho-gnarlic char. I just keep listenin to it longer & longer. Frankly, I ain’t heard an lp anything like it this year & don’t expect to.” – Siltblog

I am an independent writer and editor based in Tucson, Arizona. In 2023: I publish an email newsletter called LANDLINE = Previously: I co-founded and edited Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curated the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages, Grand Royal and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was somehow listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. From 2010 to 2021, I lived in rural wilderness in Joshua Tree, Ca.
