IYSWIM is a retroactive blog about music led by artist and designer Andy Royston, who has had more than his fair share of music adventures in a long career in the UK and the United States of America.
Andy is long known for extended barroom anecdotes set in grimy London bars and backstage at the various Apollos and Odeons. So this blog has been set up to capture some of these in words and pictures.
Andy’s wikipedic knowledge of the seamier side of the music business and his undimmed enthusiasm for the rawest and wildest music in the western hemisphere will inevitably result in a series of entertaining rants and ramblings.
Grab a pint of vintage and listen up.
