Welcome to Notes From Pig City. This is my online archive for as much of my journalism as can be kept here. Published pieces will be reposted here as soon as they can be. I also write exclusively and prolifically on my Patreon page; those pieces are not republished here.
I’m the author of two books: Pig City (2004), a book about Brisbane, and Something To Believe In (2019), a music memoir. I work independently for many different publications and occasionally for others behind the scenes.
I have a wide variety of obsessions, and they’re reflected by the number of tabs in the main menu. You can click through those, or the archive on the side bar to find what you might be interested in, whether you’re a casual visitor or looking for something specific.
This site used to be known as Friction. I changed it to something that’s more clearly identified with my work and the place I live. If you want to get in touch, you can send me a message via the Contact tab, or via Twitter (@staffo_sez).
