Hi, I’m Pete Astor - songwriter, musician, teacher and writer.

I’ve made records as part of The Loft, The Weather Prophets, The Wisdom of Harry and Ellis Island Sound on Creation, Matador, Heavenly and more. I’m Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of Westminster. I write for academic journals and magazines – I wrote a 33 and a 1/3rd for Bloomsbury on Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ Blank Generation.

I released Spilt Milk on Fortuna Pop last year. I’m currently working on a new one which may or may not be called ‘Memory the Onion.’
