Just like every Nite has its dawn, just like every cowboy sings a sad sad song...


“It’s always darkest before the dawn, it just never dawned on me” - Hanoi Rocks

Hi all - just a quick update on the current situation with Nite Songs…

Due to being a bit stressed out and having a lot of stuff on in my life at the moment, I’ve made the difficult decision to put the ‘zine on hold for a bit. Lately, I’ll be honest, keeping on top of things and making sure it’s updated regularly has started to feel like a real chore which something you essentially do as a hobby should NEVER feel like.

I think the tipping point came last night when I was desperately trying to put the Sounds From The Junkshop column that was due to go up today together (it says a lot that normally I try and cue things up at least a week before they’re due to go live but as with a lot of ‘zine related stuff that’s well and truly hit the skids of late which has only added to the pressure to keep this thing up to date) and I just couldn’t think of anything to write leading to me basically being sat gawping at the screen for about ten minutes before turning the computer off.

Taking a step back, it’s becoming obvious that I’ve not been looking after myself mentally very well of late (as well as the ‘zine, I’m also trying to juggle a job, a college course and writing a book at the moment) and something’s gonna have to change. The break may just be a couple of weeks or it may be longer depending on how things go. To all the bands whose stuff I had cued up to review in the weeks ahead, I’m really sorry about this and I hope you understand.

Nite Songs may return or it may not, time will tell. But just in case it doesn’t I just want to say thanks to everyone for your support over the last two and a half years, it’s meant a lot that some people have decided my deranged scribblings are worth reading. Hopefully we’ll all see each other down the road somewhere and I will still be chipping in the odd bit of writing elsewhere when time allows. Take care and don’t stop rockin’.
