When a piece of music resonates with me it often stops me in my tracks. Seventeen Going Under by Sam Fender has had me in a trance now for days. It's given me that teenage obsession where all you want to do is put the track on a loop constantly; dancing, crying and jumping all at once. This track strikes a nostalgic chord with me, I love it.
🖼 I’m Reading...
As you probably already know I am a big fan of Stephen Collins so it will come as no surprise that I am reading The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil. His illustrations are stunning and the idea of his protagonist's inner darkness manifesting as an evil beard is hilarious.
📺 I’m Watching...
I know this has been running for a while now, but when I was out for a few drinks with two of my school friends they recommended that I watch Amazon Prime's The Boys. Needless to say, I am hooked, despite it being intensely graphic and gory. The idea of superheroes being not just flawed human beings but absolute deviants being protected by PR is genius.

I am a massive fan of Keith Kenniff's moniker Helios. One of the things I love most about his music is how often he uses found sounds to make part or all of his drum kit sounds.
I was inspired by this so I grabbed my mic and laptop and headed to my kitchen where I grabbed some cereal boxes, snack boxes, and our cutlery tray. I recorded these to get rough and crunchy snare-type sounds.
To get the kick sound I simply recorded myself thumping the kitchen table with my fist.
Et Viola, the Snack Box Kit was born.
