Hi! I’m Simon. Since 2005 I’ve been writing about music somewhere on the Internet. Almost always under the title Moderate Rock.

The name is inspired by a brief moment in a song by Nirvana, my favourite band, and I’m inspired by the chance of hearing another great band, the next great band, maybe your band. And by the opportunity to bring new and underheard artists to other people’s ears.

I throw my net pretty wide at times but as the name suggests, I write about rock music. Although, if it’s in any way ‘alternative’ (which I know is horribly uncool to say) I’m probably interested- from Aphex Twin to Zao.

I hope you find something to love!
