Alec Plowman is a blogger, writer and podcaster.

Over the years, he’s created content for the likes of Ultimate Guitar, Record Collector and Powerplay Magazine.

Currently, he’s blogging for the good folks at Thalia Capos and co-produces and co-hosts The Stonkin’ Foodcast: a regular slice of foodie goodness with YouTube cookery legend Barry Lewis.

Previously he created, co-hosted and co-produced The Sequelisers, the show that fixes bad sequels to good movies, and was also producer, audio engineer and sometime guest on Barshens. He also intermittently appears on the Ashens channel, taking a humorous look at action figure oddities alongside Stuart Ashen. 

In 2017, he was awarded his doctorate by the University of East Anglia. His PhD thesis – “From Top of the Pops to Woodstock: Mediatisations of Rock Music Liveness 1967-1973″ – was fully funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Outside of writing and podcasting, Alec is the frontman of Norwich-based hard rock band Monster City. The group is currently recording a new album, due for release in 2020.

He’s also the proud father of twin girls, and grateful for any suggestions on child-proofing his record collection.
