It started with a girl called Lindsey (not like that). She said, “hey, why don’t you write for this lot? They like music and they’re trying to help people.” So I did. Then I started mangling their website, and then when they launched a swanky new magazine via Topman (RESET, check it out here) they came looking for a capable and creative individual to edit it. When they couldn’t find one they picked me.

Meanwhile, I went running now and again. Having done the London Marathon in 2002 and not trained for it properly, I felt like I had unfinished business. And so, like an actor trying to save their career by returning to EastEnders, I’m making a comeback.

Put the two together and here we are. Me and my ballot-place-obtained mate Rich are fit and ready and will almost certainly leave the pub in time to make the start. So all we need now is you. If you can spare a tenner then go to And if you can Gift Aid it then we get more but it costs you nothing.

Thanks! See you down the boozer, after April 17th obviously…
