Get yoursens down Monty's Deli

Other than world peace, is there anything more palatable than an overfilled meat sandwich? Monty's Deli is in Hoxton, achingly trendy but do a fucking immense butty which comes with a pickle the size of your conk. Check it.

A very Scottish wedding

We travelled up the spine of the UK at the end of July for a wedding in Scotland. The wedding was bo (big up Bron and Phil) but one of the major moments was discovering a new food. The Macaroni pie! Right on Nicola Sturgeon for allowing this to happen in her lands. May - take note you troll.

A new species of food

Where Nicola Sturgeon does all her dumps 

A very long sausage roll

A rainbow - I deleted a load of photos and apps to make space for it, then five minutes later it rained so hard that we couldn't see anything

Cloud eggs

It's hard to say how much our gaff loves eggs but in every shape, size and form, we're huge, dedicated fans. From scrambled to scotch, we'll snaffle them up whatever way they come with a snarl on our chops and a wanton disregard for becoming eggbound.

So with this kind of fire in our loins, you can imagine how excited we were to learn of the new 'craze' for cloud eggs. They resemble cumulus nimbus with yolks and involve separating the whites and beating them into stiff peaks, then baking the blighters. Who doesn't like getting on that? Yeah mate.

Out in the Styx

If you go out in the styx today, you're probably going to get a big surprise ...  well if you end up in Tottenham Hale you might be surprised to learn that there's more popping than just JD Sports, Pizza Hut and an inexplicably busy Costa Coffee. Arts venue Styx is almost next to the bus station but you'll need to be slightly in the know to discover its mix of clubs, theatre and cocktails. Seek and ye shall find? Or check out this interview with the team behind the venue in the latest issue of the Tottenham Community Press...

Visit for the whole shebang...

Soho Radio jazz special

I forgot to throw this up online so to speak, but here's the last show we did (as M magazine) on Soho Radio back in June. This was a jazz special and was one of the best installments yet, in part due to the average age in the studio being below 30 for the first time since we started doing it. It smells less stale for sure... You can listen below and check out the archive of the previous episodes by heading here and searching for M magazine. It's much missed by me in some ways... however, no longer doing it means my hair is a little less grey than before...
