A Pilgrims Journey Home

Welcome to Phat Pilgrim.Com A Pilgrims Journey Home

This is the blog and website for Bruce Campbell, writer, composer, DJ, remixer, producer, humanist, socialist and maker of beautiful mischief.


In January this year I was admitted to hospital with a suspected blood clot. Not only did I have a clot behind the knee, I also had multiple pulmonary embolisms in my lung. It turned out that the clotting was a result or symptom of a deeper problem.

In February, I was diagnosed with Upper Gastric Intestinal Cancer with secondary spread in the spine and abdomen. It’s inoperable, incurable and the treatments I’m receiving are palliative.


This is really a website of Two main parts:


One being a quite wide ranging blog about living with cancer, facing my mortality, how and why we create meaning in our lives, life hacks, rants and observations as I attempt to die well and in the process live a little better  and document my attempts to prepare for my journey home.


The second part is my life’s passion – Music. This is where you’ll find my artist page, Phat Pilgrim Records, gadgets, music and music gear reviews. For the last 10 years I have DJ-ed and produced as a9ent0ran9e co-hosting ‘Thank Phat It’s Friday’ with Damn Right and Will MD on NSB Radio.


In 2016, I left NSB Radio to expand my musical horizons and work on my life as an artist and embracing the new artist name of Phat Pilgrim as it has always reflected my intentions behind the music more accurately.


You may be here for the blog and chance across the music or vice versa. Whatever has brought you here know that you are welcome in love and if you get any benefit from any part of the offering than it’ll all have been for something.


Big Love and ‘Nuff Respect (inner area) (~’~) Bruce
