Welcome to Punk Ska Press, the blog for Alistair McGeorge, a freelance music journalist who most recently worked as the music writer for Female First.
A recent graduate from the University of Central Lancashire (Upper Second honours in Journalism), I have interviewed almost 100 music acts, ranging from unsigned bands to multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning stars.
For almost two years I was a weekly columnist at 411Mania.com in their music section, as well as occasional contributor and album reviewer. I used to write A Lesson In… for the site, before moving onto Album A Day for almost a year. I left the site after I began my career at Female First, where I stayed for 6 months.
Over the last three of years, I’ve interviewed almost 100 bands in person and on the phone, with many more over e-mail. I will be, eventually, publishing a full, linkable (where possible) list.
