Website of Kenneth Paul Stephen
Author of the Forgotten Scotland Mini-reads series.
If you know Kenneth personally, you can always offer to buy him a pint at the Abbotsford Lounge Bar, Perth.
Favourite tipples: Thrappledouser, Ossian, Orkney Dark Island, Deuchars IPA, Trade Winds, Punk IPA, Innis and Gunn (original and IPA). Malt whisky.
If you want to buy him music, he is currently partial to Frightened Rabbit, Boards of Canada, Parquet Courts, Cross Record, Wolf Alice, The Fauns, Sigur Ros, Nordic Giants, The Raveonettes, Guided by Voices and Public Service Broadcasting.
If it’s books, try any Scottish fiction, historical stuff and maybe socio-political. Nietzsche and Kierkegaard go down pretty well, too.
If you want to talk football, best mention East Fife FC at least once. Rest of the sporting focus should be Shinty.
Don’t mention DIY, reality TV or celebrity gossip but you’ll be ok with current affairs, ship recovery programmes, bar games (especially TV series Indoor League), caravans and most of the above (except the first part of this sentence).
If you don’t want to contact him, speak to him or buy him anything, that’s fair enough. It's a free country- or is it?
