John Robb

John Robb talks about a life in music, his best-selling art of darkness book, being the first person to interview Nirvana, inventing the word britpop and adventures on the post-punk frontline...

John Robb is a many-faceted creature. Not just a well known face from TV but also a best selling author, musician, journalist, presenter and pundit, music website boss, publisher, festival boss, eco warrior and vegan behemoth and talking head singer from post-punk mainstays The Membranes. John Robb is all these things and more.

His recently released book The Art Of Darkness - the History Of Goth is a worldwide pop culture best seller and his soon to be launched ground-breaking new scheme - the Green Britain Academy, is set to train up people in thousands of Eco jobs whilst Borders Blurred is a gaming and music agency with a twist.

He was one of the leading post punk fanzine writers in the UK with Rox before he went on to write for the rock press with Sounds in the 80s. John was the first person to interview Nirvana in the early 90s and was one of the first to coin the expression 'Britpop' and was instrumental in kick starting and documenting the 'Madchester' scene with his writing. His music and culture website Louder than War is currently the fifth most-read music and culture site in the UK and at the front of diverse modern culture.
