Oliver Arditi

Oliver Arditi is a musician, librarian, writer, and contrarian from the East of England, who has scorned institutional or financial validation in the misguided pursuit of authenticity. While devoting his life to projects too ambitious ever to reach fruition, he writes with pathological compulsion about his every cultural encounter on a blog with three regular readers—and occasionally for proper outlets like SOLRAD. Oli became absorbed by a Star Wars comic in the mid-1970s and has yet to look up and note the onset of adulthood.
