HOVEY STREET, GLOUCESTER, AT DUSK

It’s strange, that which sits in our minds, quietly influencing us without us knowing. I was near the top of Hampden Street in Gloucester, where it’s topped neatly by Hovey. It runs steeply downhill, and affords a view of other toytown houses sprinkled on the hill opposite. In the evening, the sun sets behind the houses. Instinct had brought me there, not a guide book, and I was sure I’d found just the place to take my photograph. A black […]

Dave Haslam Sonic Youth Slept ON My Floor book

INTERVIEW WITH DAVE HASLAM

On Monday 4th June I will be interviewing Dave Haslam about his newly published book, ‘Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor’ at the Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester. The book recounts Dave’s life in Manchester from the early 1980s through to the present day, and takes in tales of love, music and personal revelation. It’s a parable for those times, and brilliantly evokes the chaos and excitement of the Hacineda years, as well as taking us through the decades that […]
