Seven Day Fool – Jason Disley Reviewed

Written by Matteo Sedazzari
Seven Day Fool is the debut novel by Torquay based, Manchester born, writer and poet Jason Disley. I met Disley a few years back via FaceBook when I stumbled upon a ‘friend’ posting several poems. I was instantly engaged, as his words were soulful and moved like jazz music, a real modern day Beat poet as legend Allen Ginsberg.

When Positive Energy of Madness met Danny Rampling November 1989

Written by Matteo Sedazzari
In the winter of 1989, I was privileged and honoured to interview Danny Rampling, for my then fanzine, Positive Energy of Madness. It was about two weeks after he had closed his ground-breaking club Shoom. In my eyes at the time, and even today, the end of Shoom was Acid House’s equivalent to The Jam breaking up at the end of 1982. As Shoom, like the Woking Wonders, meant so much to a lot of people. Personally, I found Shoom inspiring, beautiful and wonderful. I was very late to the Shoom party, yet I was welcomed with opened arms, moving, truly moving as I would dance the night away with a beaming smile on my face.

Eastern Barbers -Blue Flakes- Latest Single

Written by Johnny Flashton
‘Blue Flakes’ is the latest single from South East London brothers EASTERN BARBERS, and you can certainly hear the influence of these surroundings on the track. While not making a direct political statement, Ross and James Fernandez writing style is a form of documentation, and it just so happens that their immediate surroundings depict acute gentrification and the loss of the local community.
