About The Author

Jonathan Trew has been writing about music, culture and restaurants since the early 1990s. A brief stint as a music reporter for MTV convinced him he was more useful as a keyboard jockey than in front of a camera. When not leading tour groups in Edinburgh and Glasgow, he can usually be found at his desk wondering when this internet thing will end.
