Mad old world

          These fine fellows, 7 Inch Stitch, are a band who have named their first two releases after Jeff Lint books - 'I Blame Ferns' and 'I Eat Fog'. Jeff Lint, you'll recall, is the subject of 'Lint', Steve Aylett's latest book. Well, er, his latest novel. Yes, Jeff Lint is a ficticious character, whose books were therefore also fictitious, and now a real band has named their songs after them. And from their myspace page, it appears that Jeff Lint is also a member of the band.

The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
