stevie chick is a freelance writer for MOJO, guardian, rolling stone and plan b, and editor of loose lips sink ships. sam has known him now for the past 8 years and have shared some momentous musical discoveries with him along the way – he’s as fervently passionate and committed to great music of all kinds as anyone that he knows, and is also one of his favourite writers. in the greatest tradition of rock journalism, stevie allows the reader to share in his excitement with perfectly crafted sentences that conjure up a musical picture that makes you want to run out and buy the record he’s describing on the spot!
most recently he published his opus on sonic youth entitled ‘psychic confusion: the sonic youth story” available to buy HERE or alternatively any good local booksellers, which we’re both looking forward to reading as soon as we get the chance! whilst we’re on the subject of talented hacks with books, please allow us to also highly recommend the legendary collection of creem/rolling stone journalist lester bangs finest works entitled ‘psychotic reactions & carburetor dung’ for a scorchingly passionate / funny / life changing read.
so, onto stevie’s mix, and unsurprisingly it’s an emotional journey through all kinds of scuzz, fuzz, sweat, soul and funk that makes a refreshing change around these parts to our usual four:four related business – so, what are you waiting for kiddies? go listen!
