Jeremy Allen

Jeremy Allen has been a music and culture journalist for the best part of two decades, writing for publications like the Guardian, Vice, the Quietus, BBC, NME, and Electronic Sound. As a French pop specialist who lived in Paris for five years, he has interviewed the great and the good across La Manche, as well as legends like Lou Reed, Lemmy from Motörhead, and Amy Winehouse for various publications. His first book Relax Baby Be Cool: The Artistry and Audacity of Serge Gainsbourg (Jawbone Press) received universally good reviews in the UK music press, and a recent essay on the French nouvelle vague of cinema in the anthology We’ll Never Have Paris (Repeater Books) was lauded by the TLS.
