I’ve been posting stuff here at Buzzsonic.com since 2004 (when the blog began shakily as MBN24.com). I also run MusicIndustryHacks.com and have  been known to produce music as the 99th Floor Elevators.

I’m  what’s loosely known as a Twitter addict, Tweeting about the new music industry, social media and disruptive technology @buzzsonic and social media, SEO and WordPress  resources @Bzzzsocial .  Google me and you’ll find I’m literally sprinkled all over the web and various social media networks, some horribly neglected, some not, like my hyperactive Pinterest account.


I enjoyed some major music industry success in the UK in the mid 90s/early noughties having had two Top 40 national chart hits as the 99th Floor Elevators for one time UK Pop Idol judge (and former Simon Cowell mentor and pop music mogul) Pete Waterman’s PWL Empire.

I also have a history as a fanzine editor (as James Blonde at Time For Action), indie band manager, rock singer, freelance music journalist (at the now defunct UK national music weekly Sounds), record label runner (at pioneering Leeds based indie Goth label Rouska Records) and label owner at Buzzsonic Records.
