Departure lounge ramblings on music, places, climate change and stuff outdoors


British Sea Power

Top tunes and nature themes, from the band that said “Oh Larsen B / You can fall on me”

Simply my favourite website and an instant route to feeling relaxed. Words about rivers, wildlife, music, books and almost everything I like.

Euros Childs

Ex-Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci’s slightly madcap musings and music.

Guy Garvey

Could Sunday nights exist without Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour?

Heavenly Recordings

Record label that is home to some of my favourite bands, including Saint EtienneSea of Bees, and Fionn Regan

The Leisure Society

They’re brilliant, they have a new album and tour, and they’re from Burton..

London Welsh Centre

Not just the place to watch Wales storm to another Six Nations triumph, but also home to Huw Edwards’ monthly ‘Introducing’ live.

Matt Sewell

Bird artist extraordinaire. Under his paintbrush the humble starling appears to have the universe swirling on its breast.

The Sky At Night

Happily ramshackle, but still the best place to learn about the heavens even without Patrick Moore at the helm.

Rough Trade

A fine record label and two great music shops.

Spillers Records

The oldest record shop in the world is still going.

London Gig Guide

Where to find out what is going on in the world’s greatest city.
