The Noisy Alchemist started out as a place for us to put all the different parts of our lives - whether it be music, photography, art, film, videogames, whatever - over here so that there might be some free brain space to focus on whatever is on our desk at any given moment. However, over the past year and a half plus, with over 100 varied offerings of nonsense, the combination of differing elements has led it to transmogrify into something else, which was kind of the point.
Take a look at any of the columns & features over on the Home Page. If you’re feeling lost then you can find some of the most popular articles right HERE. If it’s photography you’re after then the TMAX gallery has you covered. Alternatively, you can search for something specific, hit us up on Twitter & Instagram for more stuffs or shoot us an email like a good soul.
Failing that, there’s even an AMA with Jon that may or may not answer one or two burning questions but you have been warned and we’re sorry…
Jon Dodd is an English musician, producer and film obsessive. He plays a number of instruments; mostly guitar, keys and a little drums (although nobody really wants that) and has been in and out of various folk, rock, punk and blues bands for the past two decades. Currently, he records under his own name, as part of heavy blues collective, Pyre Peyote and formerly played guitar for underground garage rock darlings, DEAF YETi. He is also the frontman of Italian rock band, The Heat.
Before all of that, he was a reluctant writer and unrepentant poet, working in and out of both editorial and teaching for a number of years. These days he lives in Whitechapel, London with his imaginary fish, too many books and spends most of his time trying to avoid mixing electro or metal.
You can find him curating a somewhat unusual 'antique photography book, vintage vinyl & mid-century furniture type shop' in Marylebone. His favourite cameras are a Canon AE-1P, a Polaroid 600, and a Spectra that still works except for when it doesn't. He loves orange juice, hates wet socks and will talk to you at length about The Pixies if you let him.
