I made Stewart Lee laugh once, and Thom Yorke liked my set.

Genuinely my two proudest moments. I also have a son.


British Sea Power really liked my write-up of their Sea of Brass show! They printed it in the liner notes of the studio release!

They spelled my name wrong and got the publication wrong. But still. VERY proud moment.

Dev blood orange/test icicle guy shared some sweets with me and my brother

Steven Malkmus. Was really excited to talk about No Age (I was wearing a No Age t shirt at the time).

Probably the greatest 10 minutes of my life.

I had a strange interaction with Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus. He seemed happy that i had bought his CD. When I said I had missed most of the set he said not to worry and that they’d be back to Belfast soon. 20 people tops were at the gig…

Let barry do the fightin’!!!
