About the Author

"James Stevenson hatched from an egg in the year 2015, then travelled back in time to 1999 to prevent the Y2K Bug. He failed." ‑James Hope

After that, I did lots of things. For one, I spent three years at Imperial College London learning to juggle and doing a radio show. When I left they gave me a degree in mathematics, which I wasn't entirely sure what to do with. I got a job in a cafe, took a few wild hitchhiking adventures, then went back to Imperial to learn to sail and dance. I didn't sail or dance at all, but this time they gave me a degree in "Environmental Technology".

Current occupations:
None lol
Working on Banana Drum
Playing in two samba bands
Almost never making music
Chief Barista and Silly Person at Sweetpea Market Garden
Being an enormous dweeb

Read this: Alberti Denti di Pirajno, A Cure for Serpents

Alberto Denti was an Italian doctor posted in North Africa throughout the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. In this book he recalls the various escapades and acquaintances from his time there, all true, and yet at times almost incredible. These are magical tales of people and cultures gone from the earth, rich and fascinating and alive. It is a truly beautiful book.

A legendary group: Penguin Cafe Orchestra

Born from the rather unusual inspiration of a dream, Penguin Cafe Orchestra set out to make music celebrating the spontanaity and randomness of life. Their songs are joyous and playful, though sometimes sorrowful, sometimes contemplative. Their brilliance is in the freedom of their music, and the humanity. But these are big words from an ignorant child, so please, listen for yourself.
