Long-wanted to get some kind of map with red pins in, cos more is always more than more in the world of grist. The list doesn’t include DJ-ing or performing in other bands. There must be some I’ve forgotten, if you can help? I know I played round the Loop Soup HQ once but I [...]

All that stuff I’d been told about needing to be familiar with Mac applications, that there would be workshops, and that I [...]

Woke up floating on the Thames with the regular post-cunted awfulness and had sad discussion about the wonky infrastructure in my partner’s life. Took a couple of photographs and left. Then just missed two buses and one train and spent a lot of time worrying that my phone was going to run out of juice, [...]

I hearby announce the birth of a new imprint called GRIST.
This will be the home of all subsequent domestically-produced releases for Um and/or Pete Um artefacts. I would also hope to document work by other artists that might not see the light of day elsewhere. Indeed the primary goal of the GRIST label will [...]
