I’ve been a staff writer at the Chicago Reader since 1996, which is when I started writing the Post No Bills column. It ran until 2004 and was reborn a few years ago as my Reader blog. I’ve written about all kind of styles and music-related topics over the years, from proto-punkers to rabid record collectors to jazz drummers. My work has also appeared in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, DownBeat, and on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. I also appear on the third Friday of each month as a guest on WBEZ’s Radio M program.
