  • Insights for a vigilant society

    What are you doing on June 25th? I'll be at a picnic and you are more than welcome. George Orwell, renowned author and social critic, remains exceptionally relevant in our modern world. His life and writings offer us profound insights into power dynamics, government control, surveillance, and the manipulation of information.  Orwell's works, particularly "1984" and including "Animal Farm," provide crucial warnings and reflections on the perils of authoritarianism and the erosion of individual freedoms. Despite being written 73 years ago Orwell's "1984," depicts a pervasive surveillance state not dissimilar to our own era of government surveillance and mass data collection. And we continue to have concerns about the balance between security and privacy. More relevant than ever is Orwell's concept of "Newspeak", reflected in the manipulation and distortion of language for political purposes in our current age of misinformation, fake news, and the weaponisation of social media.  His exploration of thought c

  • Finding Lost Chimes

    25/04/2023 Duración: 10min

    Recorded for my weekly email delivered from I was cycling past a village record store and suddenly remembered it was Record Store Day. As I entered, I was welcomed with free beer and sunshine.  A few minutes later a band started playing some wonderful dream pop folk. It felt like summer had arrived. They were called Lost Chimes and their set was one long and lovely sigh. I was blissfully lost in it all. Music expresses what can’t be said and is one of the most beautiful vehicles for story. And these two do it so well.  The audio above is a chat I grabbed with Gemma and Nicky Kirk as they packed up.  I will assume you have already found their music on Band Camp. Their previous band Hunt Us is also there.  Lost Chimes have new album on the way and while you wait for that, i’ll leave you with their beautiful cover of Joy Division’s, “Love will tear us apart”.  Thanks for listening.
