Over the years, I published a number of books and magazines on the rock/surf instrumental scene.


‘Strictly Instrumental – A Discography of Canadian & American Instrumental 45’s & E.P.’s 1955 – 1985’ (1985)

 ‘Strictly Instrumental The Canadian Scene – A Discography Of Canadian Instrumental Records’ (1992)

 ‘Livewire – The Canadian Newsletter For Instrumental Rock’ (14 issues of ‘Livewire’ magazine published 1993-1997)


As well, since 2002, I have published a ‘Livewire’ column in UK instrumental magazine ‘New Gandy Dancer’.

I am currently completing a revised edition of the ‘Strictly Instrumental’ discography set for publication in 2015.
