So my name’s Christian Cottingham, not to be confused with that other guy who has my name – you know, the Chris Cottingham who writes for The Guardian sometimes and has his own music magazine. I’m not him. I hate that guy.
I’m a Brighton-based music writer, film lover and Sussex University journalism MA student currently working in education but looking to sneak into a role as a critic. Any help there gratefully received.
In between the ceaseless workload of teaching i write for The Stool Pigeon, Drowned In Sound, MusicOMH and The Line of Best Fit, and can generally be found loitering in darkened rooms waiting for amplifiers to kick in or projectors to start up. Pretty sure I’ll be going deaf soon.
