About the Author

Hi, my name is Saba but I write this blog under my moniker, Silly McWiggles.

I’m currently based in Europe and work as a freelancer.

I’m a self-proclaimed blogger with a VERY different background. I know a thing or two about the music industry but play no instruments, sing only in the shower and have no formal music education. I do it purely as a hobby. Most things I write about here are my private investigations and/or observations. So, we might have to agree to disagree sometimes 🙂

But I am a certified music journo 🙂

This blog started as a repository for my music journalism course writings. It has gradually evolved into a an opinionated portal on the Australian music scene that I – madly yet accidentally – fell in love with whilst living Down Under.

My mission is to shamelessly spread the word about less known Aussie music (in all its shapes and colours). But I also cover mainstream topics.

Fave Aussie lyrics

Dying Song by Montaigne

“What if I only got a single life?
What if I trip and fall upon my knife?
What if the world is meant for doom and gloom?
Guess at the end you can sing this tune

This is gonna be my dying song
So, what the hell, I’ll sing it loud and long
Thanks to all the songs that I have sung
But this is the last before I’m wrung and hung
This is gonna be my dying song
Thanks to the life that I have lived and loved
I’ll see you soon after evil hath won”
