Siôn Smith is a writer and essayist who has an appetite for stringing subjects together often using nothing but blu-tack and spit: pop-culture criticism, rock music, travel, crime novels, the natural world, dirty realism and art all fall easily under the hammer... often in the same essay.
He is also the creator and host of the Starfish and Coffee podcast and a recovering songwriter.
He is best known for his books - The Day The Sky Fell Down, Cities of the Dead, Black Dye White Noise, The Language of Thieves & Vagabonds, The Family Of Noise and Scenes From The Coffee House (V1) and as the editor of Burn, Zero and Skin Deep magazine.
He has written hundreds of articles about rock music and the counter-culture. Now and again, cool people at CNN, BBC and SKY ask him to comment on such things.
