I get obsessed with researching stuff. I've always got a project on the go - collecting English folk records, acid house, acid wash denim, contemporary feminism, 70s children's TV, hypnagogic pop... and most recently traditional sailor / circus tattoos.
I live up in the roof of a warehouse surrounded by my books and records.
