This post originally appeared on Hideous Things A while ago, a friend said to me: “I think when I finally find myself on a dancefloor again, in front of a big speaker stack, I’ll probably cry.” I wondered then and many times afterwards if I would too. Maybe not actually burst into tears, but at least … Read More

Tales from the Covoid

April 6, 2021By RoyaLifestyle, Reflections No Comments

It’s been sunny. I have stuff to do. The restrictions are being relaxed. I feel a lot better now. Almost good in fact. But things did get quite grim for a while. I was listening to a radio show back in January, and the DJ spoke about not having been particularly productive during this last … Read More

December 30, 2020By RoyaGigs, Lifestyle, Reflections, Studio Space No Comments

It’s not all been bad… It’s undoubtedly been a difficult year. A horrible year even. But… there are some things that weren’t shit for me in 2020.

Lockdown Diary (Part Five)

Lockdown Diary (Part Two)

April 1, 2020By RoyaLifestyle, Reflections No Comments

I think I dealt with the first part of this pretty well. In some ways I was even weirdly glad of it all. I wouldn’t be left homeless or completely broke and, after months of little free time, diminished amounts of work meant that I would have more time for creative projects. As the weekend … Read More

Lockdown Diary

March 27, 2020By RoyaLifestyle, Reflections No Comments

Two weeks and two days ago I was sat in a bar, just next door to where I was living, planning many things for the year ahead. I went down to Outlaws Yacht Club, as I did most days, where one of the owners had kindly offered to help out with advice about licensing our … Read More
