Tim Cundle

Tim Cundle stumbled into the punk scene sometime in the mid 1980s and his life has never been the same. Having worked as a riflery instructor and drug counsellor and studied both English Literature and Behavioural Science at University, he decided his career lay down a different path and, having written for the local newspaper since he was 15, did what most aspiring writers do. He became a journalist.

Currently the editor of Mass Movement magazine, he has also contributed to, and written for, Doctor Who magazine, Big Cheese, Fracture and many other publications. 

 

After singing with two Hardcore bands, Charlies Family Crisis and AxTxOxTx, he now considers that chapter of his life to be closed and the chances of him playing with another band are slim to non-existent. 

Tim lives in a small, sleepy Welsh village with his wife Emma and daughter Siobhan, to whom Compression, his first novel, is dedicated.

IN THE PRESS

The Scene That Would Not Die

by Ian Glasper 

 

"The book reads like an encyclopedia of bands... What emerges is the story of a community bound as much by a love of hard-driving guitars and heavy, pounding drums as by a suspicion of mainstream culture and the trappings of a consumerist vision of success"
