Katherine Pargeter

Born in Kavala in Greece to English parents, Katherine moved to London in the early nineties to study Sculpture at St. Martin's College. After graduating however, she lived in Camden and wrote for Sounds (amongst others), about the growing music scene. Her first book "Darklife - the rise and fall of Britpop' dealt with the murkier sides of the music industry.

She has since returned to Greece where she now lives with her two cats Damon and Jarvis.

Magritte: Pipesmoker
Ren?© Magritte is the pipesmoker. That's possibly how you know him best, from 'La trahison des images' (the tragedy of images) Magritte's famous image of The Pipe coupled with the expression, Ceci n'est pas une pipe. This is not a pipe.
Lily Allen: The highly-anticipated outsideleft review
If I'm proud of OutsideLeft about anything, it's how the writers here are able to spot a trend 100-yards away, cherry-pick them out of obscurity, give it a quick write up and then put it on the shelf, forget all about it, only to wave our scepter over the next "Next Big Thing ©" we deem important.
