Phil Rockstroh
About Phil Rockstroh 177 Articles
Phil Rockstroh is a poet, lyricist and philosopher bard living in New York City. Yet a bio amounts to dharma for dimwits: It defines a human being in the same manner and degree of veracity as a restaurant menu describes the various slabs of meat offered … commodified things that were once living beings.
Sean Keenan
About Sean Keenan 164 Articles
Sean Keenan used to write. Now he edits, and gets very annoyed about the word ‘ethereal’. Likely to bite anyone using the form ‘I’m loving….’. Don’t start him on the misuse of three-dot ellipses. Divides his time between mid-Spain and South-West France, like one of those bucktoothed, fur-clad minor-aristocracy ogresses you see in Hello magazine, only without the naff chandeliers.

About Fraggle 62 Articles
Born in the 80s, grew up with the 90s and confused by the millennial generation, I am Peter, more commonly known as Fraggle (long story, don't ask, details are a little hazy!) With a degree in biochemistry, an ever growing guitar collection and a job handling medication, things are far different to how I expected them to have turned out, but the one thing which hasn't changed is how important music is in my life—it is one of my main passions, be it playing it, listening to it or attending it and experiencing it in the live setting (the way it is meant to be). Blessed with a 'proper punk/metal spirit' (quote from Kailas), you will often encounter me at gigs or festivals with a beer firmly clutched in one hand and shirt in the other... Or these days, a pen and notepad too, maybe a camera if needed.

About Nicola Anthony 25 Articles
Nicola Anthony is an artist living & working in London, seeking to discover things which make her mind crackle with creative thought. She sees the world as a series of interconnected subject matters, fragile moments & things from which ‘stuff’ can be made. A lady of many hats, she also gives lectures, writes an artist’s blog, freelances on creative projects, & works for some of London’s producing theatres, (including Young Vic, BAC, Almeida, & Royal Court). With this multiple hat complex things can get quite kaleidoscopic, but through her artwork & her writing she tries to capture some of this erratically shifting multicoloured world. With a fascination in language, her art explores the way we read meaning into words & artworks: Text, stories & voices are used as sculptural materials, whilst forms & lines are created with sentences. Her point of view on the world can be bizarre at times, but she hopes to help you discover new things & a new way of looking. @Nicola_Anthony on Twitter
