His stuff has appeared in Gale Research’s literary criticism series of reference books, Creem (when it was in decline), Alternative Press (when it was ascendant), XLR8R, Jazz Times, and a slew of alternative weekly newspapers scattered across America. He also DJs weird, obscure records under the name Veins. He probably won’t honor your requests.
