Paul Matts – Writer

I am a writer of articles on music which features in several magazines. The focus is on the punk and new wave music of the late 1970s onwards, and also on reggae. And occasionally I dabble in other genres.

My debut novel ‘Toy Guitars’ has been published by New Generation Publishing in 2021. It is a kitchen-sink family drama set in scruffy suburban England against a backdrop of punk dreams with estrangement, families, adolescence and division among its themes.

‘Toy Guitars’ is available at online retailers such as Waterstones, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and many more.

My debut novella, ‘Donny Jackal’ is also available and is a coming of age drama set in English punk rock suburbia. It has received five star reviews.

I am a regular contributor and reviewer for We Are Cult, Something Else Reviews, Punk Globe, Razur Cuts and Punk Noir magazines. Click below to see my work.
