The Disquiet Rascals is an exciting new project, a song-writing collective focussed on social change: watch this space. In the face of the pandemic in 2021 we collaborated to record Also In Dark Times. An environemntal adventure for kids, Clara Sahara Gets Her Just Deserts is read in "portions" on YouTube. A Nuclear Refrain, a cross-cutting work of analytical fiction on the subjects of Trident replacement and deterrence, is published by Punctum Books. Taking the form of a novella modelled on Dickens' A Christmas Carol, it was written with inspiring friends and comrades Kye Askins and Philip Johnstone. Written with my comrades in the Campaign Choirs Writing Collective - Gavin Brown, Jenny Patient and Lotte Reimer - Singing For Our Lives was published by HammerOn Press in 2108. To work creatively with others is a big drive for me: co-writers, directors, actors, publishers, graphic artists, co-authors, editors... If there's an artist out there (?) I'm particularly keen to work with someone on a graphic novel project, Exit Mr Green, an ecologically dystopian advnture! I would also love to return to writing about community politics for a local news source. Academically, I persist with producing articles, chapters and interventions as creative resistance. Last year, Mark Whitehead and I made an intervention on the governance of the Covid pandemic. Enjoy my site and please do contact me to read more, discuss collaboration etc. Photos on page headers are a selection of mine. I also have a YouTube channel with moving (sic) pictures and sound!
