Hundreds of Zeroes

Friday, December 1st, 2017

I’ve gotten terrible at updating this site, but should anyone stumble here in this terrifying year of 2017, let the record show that I’ve just released a new synthpop album, written and recorded during the month of November for the NaSoAlMo challenge. Click the cover to get at it – it’s a free download from Bandcamp.

2012 is almost over. I did a few gigs, released a few things, made a video and had some radio play. Also LARDPONY returned!

Things I haven’t posted here before now, due to lazy, useless:

ARMAGEDDON TOGETHER – Apocalyptic single released on 21st December, JUST IN CASE.

TOO COLD FOR CATS – A lo-fi album, written and recorded in November. Yours for free.

CRY ME A RIVER – the 2012 version is now up on the Cry Me a River Project page. It went a bit wrong, but there’s still lots to love! Right? RIGHT?

More in 2013! Hopefully!

New Album-in-a Day: 12-08-12

Saturday, August 11th, 2012


Today (technically yesterday) I wrote and recorded an album, much in the same way that I wrote and recorded an album in September 2006.

Now I am releasing it. Click the cover!

  • The GEEK POP festival is live! Featuring exclusive songs from me – two new versions of Lardpony “classics”, one new song from my forthcoming album and a sexy duet with MJ Hibbett
  • The aforementioned sexy duet, ‘Brokeback Workbench’, is available on the GEEK LIKE ME mini-album, which can be got at from BandCamp.
  • Upcoming gig! I’m playing at The Chameleon in Nottingham next Sunday afternoon (20th March). See details here (facebook link).
  • New album info! Having written roughly 19 songs during FAWM, I’m now piecing together a new album, called Hide & Seek.

Happy New News!

It’s 2011, “Year of the Vorton”. Perhaps. At least, I have FOUR things scheduled already, which is a huge UPTURN for me!

FIRST: I have a gig in Birmingham on January 22nd! Details in this picture, I’m on at 4:30pm:

SECOND: I’m on the provisional line-up for the 2011 GeekPop festival! I’ll be sending them some new recordings (maybe even videos?) for my performance on the Comical Flask virtual stage. Also playing are Jeffrey Lewis and MJ Hibbett, among a ton of other excellent stuff.

THIRD: A gig in Nottingham, with a man named Hibbett – whoever that might be – on February 21st. See here:

FOURTH: I’m returning to MJ Hibbett’s (that man again) Totally Acoustic at The Lamb, London! I’m playing with Owen Tromans on April 19th.

In addition to all this, it’s nearly time for February Album Writing Month again! EXCITING TIMES.

Cosmic String / Pavement Tribute

Monday, March 1st, 2010

So, February is over and I’ve got a bunch of new songs. Once they’ve been tidied up a bit, remixed, sorted, artworked and filtered there will be a new album called ‘Cosmic String’ for all to enjoy. Until then, you can hear the songs as they currently sound by going to my FAWM profile page.

Here’s ‘Driving Alongside a Train’, one of my favourites from the month.

I also have a song featured on ‘Show Me A Word That Rhymes With Pavement’, which is an excellent Pavement tribute album. I did ‘Zurich is Stained’ and I’m colossally proud of it. The other tracks are all great too – in fact you could say that they’re gold sounds!!!!

It is FREE.
