The All Clear

...and here it is, the debut album The All Clear. There's songs about the joys, trials and tribulations of going to the movies (obviously); musical failures (obviously); psychopaths; the entire planet; Sarah Connor; depression in its various guises, gits, cults and time machines. There's ancient and modern, synths and guitars, daftness and sobriety, fish and chips*.
Due to me not understanding exchange rates, the album is also absurdly cheap - FOUR QUID (unless you're daft enough to get it from Apple). This means we'll have to sell WELL into double figures if Lucy is gonna buy a new pair of boots. But as always, I aim high. Come on everyone, let's buy Lucy a new pair of boots!
(*Only available if you also buy fish and chips.)

Here it also is on Spotify:

Lost Songs - the video

After several abortive attempts, the Lost Songs video is finally a thing.  I made this daftness for anyone who was in a band or was friends with someone in a band. It’s for anyone who ever wrote a song in a bedroom and doubly so if they had the guts and / or foolishness to sing it in front of anyone. Because for every person who ever scraped a living out of this whole music lark, however briefly, there are 110 who never did (DISCLAIMER: I did just make that up. But it sounds plausible, right?)

So we proudly present nearly 4 epilepsy-inducing minutes about everything that is music-making, from cables to kebabs. It’s my celebration of – and my latest contribution to – artistic endeavour twinned with commercial failure.

July July

Actually had my act together for a playlist refresh on the first of the month.  20 tracks include olds from Voice of the Beehive, Siouxsie and the Banshees, A Flock of Seagulls, A-ha and Elsatica. Some truly splendid new(er) tracks from Cellars, Lowly, Tamaryn, Superhumanoids and Christine and the Queens. And, every month just as it should be, Mew.

Love doing these....
