New music...


New music and stuff...

So yeah, I recently finished up a new CD and cassette under my solo post-hardcore thingy called MERRIDEW, and here's the proof. I can't guarantee that you'll like how they sound, but they look so good that even Cecil the Rat can't keep his eyes off them. They'll go up on Bandcamp soon to listen to for free, but in the meantime, message me if you're into physical copies, or you can listen to track four HERE.

Thanks an absolute tonne! :)

Nottingham Zine Fest 2014



So, being the complete berk that I am, I forgot to take any photos from my day tabling at the BRISTOL COMIC AND ZINE FAIR yesterday, but needless to say it was pretty rad (especially discussing the fine line between biscuits and chocolate bars with my fellow table-sharer Nuala...); cheers to everyone that bought zines, patches, badges, and noisy music.
Next up is the NOTTINGHAM ZINE FEST at Sneinton House this Saturday (11th October), which you should definitely try to make it down (or up) to if possible, especially since they've added a load of new stuff this year; should be good!

Thanks a tonne :)

Interview for 'Zegema Beach Records' / 'Open Mind / Saturated Brain' Blog...



So yeah, I answered this interview about all of the stuff that I make, including for MerridewSperare, and me and Matt's Collateral Comic for Dave at Zegema Beach Records for his rather class blog, 'Open Mind/ Saturated Brain'; feel free to go over and give it a read here if you like:


You should really go and support this dude's pages and blogs and stuff too while you're there, because he seriously does amazing things to help folk; it would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot... :)

Inverness, Scotland drawings...


So yeah, a couple of weeks ago, I went to visit my friend Nat again, who lives up in Inverness in Scotland. It was a pretty lovely trip (thank you Nat!), and though it was pretty darn foggy the whole time that I tried to take photographs, the other day I made a few drawings from those that I took. And yeah, here they are...





Thank you for having a look! :)

Updating / 'Routes...' issue three review...


So, as specified in a previous post, this year I'm trying to keep a little more 'on top' of this here blog, as I seem to have let it slip of late; thus, today I've updated all of the pages that needed doing so, and added a couple that, for some reason, decided not to be here in the first place.
In doing so, I also recalled this review of my '24 Hour Zine' from last year, lifted from the Tumblr of the lovely 'Foggybottom Press'; it'd be lovely if you'd go and give it a read, and also check out their own zine called '& Octopus', because it's fab...

Thanks a bunch :)

24HZT pins and a lovely new patch...


24HZT pins and a lovely new patch...

So yeah, had a lovely rainy afternoon in, listening to Lemuria and applying these to my backpack. The last of these badges arrived a while ago for my participation in the rather wonderful 24 Hour Zine Thing event (copies of my last effort are available on request), making it up to three years running, and here they are pinned to a rather beautiful patch that I ordered some time ago from Portland Button Works.

I don't really make new year's resolutions; if you want to do something or make something happen then I think it should be done for yourself, and not for the calender; it just so happens that it's at the start of this year that I feel I DO need to do just such things, and hopefully this lil' patch will go some way towards reminding me and other folk that everything isn't always as dire as it seems... :)

Christmas and stuff...


So yeah, I've not really used this blog for much lately, but in the new year I'm intending to post more drawings, bits of writing lifted from previous issues of 'Larry', and other general updates, so you might just see me around a little more. In the mean-time though, I'll wish you all a happy Christmas and new year, and hope 2014 is a good one for as many folk as possible.
Thank you for following this year :)

Merridew - 'This Belongs To Us' CDEP


Merridew - 'This Belongs To Us' CDEP

So yeah, it got a little delayed for a number of reasons, but I finally managed to put this EP out through my lil' label Glass of Spit. It's five tracks of bright and melodic instrumental, ambient emo, probably for fans of stuff like TEXAS IS THE REASON, THE COPPERPOT JOURNALS, and MAHUMODO, but I'd love it if you'd give it a blast regardless of what you're into.
You can check out the second track here:


...buy the EP on CD from here:

Thanks a tonne! :D

'The Screever' issue four...


'The Screever' issue four...

So yeah, issue four of me and Nat's zine The Screever is finished, and it's an EPIC 48 pages! It's only a teeny A6 size and photocopied in black and white, but there's a load of awesome stuff in it, including interviews with the mighty Stourbridge-based post-rock band Constant Waves, the lovely Lou from 13 O'Clock screenprinting, the rather incredible Tasha from A Zine Thing, and the unspeakably amazing Italian hardcore band Minus Tree, as well as pieces on Trees for Cities, Globe on Screen, and 'green graffiti', as well as the usual reviews, puzzles and recipe, so I think you should consider getting a copy. They can be ordered for a quid from Glass of Spit at:
