ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Album reviews:

"..One moment the gifted lone operator affects the kind of trenchant rock-riff panache associated with the younger Bowie, the next he's rattling off urban nightlife images with the droll elegance of The Kinks...
The Independent 4/5

"... A Gem of a debut, packed with invention..”
NME 8/10

"......The Scene & The Unseen is lyrically sharp but defies classification as Stoney runs the gamut of the best pop over the past 40 years. Bits of Bowie, Syd Barrett, Ray Davies, Beck, even ELO float by and every song is a great new experience….”
Sunday Express 4/5

“…, The echoes in his music of the Small Faces, solo McCartney and Hunky Dory Bowie share space with an up-to-date musical eccentricity and elasticity that calls to mind Beck, Super Furry Animals and Ed Harcourt. In other words, weird enough to be hip, commercial enough to be huge....”
Sunday Times

Ramblings from the artist:

So here is the full album that almost made me famous! It’s widely thought of as my debut, although this isn’t strictly true if you include 2001’s Amber.
This record had a long gestation period (4 years of ups and downs, band reshuffles, near misses with major label success etc) and I think that’s reflected in the multitudes of ideas crammed into many of the tracks. It’s perhaps a little overdeveloped in places, but it is what it is - a widescreen musical snapshot of a long, long journey which is too long to describe in detail here!

It's largely a "bedroom recording" tho some of the tracks were later polished up with the help of band members, friends and a local studio. It’s a diverse collection of songs, and while this eclecticism hopefully makes for an interesting listen, it likely made it a nightmare to market! As a result, it may always be filed under “critically acclaimed, yet commercially challenged!” I think I can live with that.

It was originally released on limited run CD & download in July 2006 on TooNice records, then later re-released nationwide on my own Sonicroar label in Nov 2007.
It picked up a couple of iTunes "Singles of the week" and some other ego massaging accolades along the way. While I’ve no doubt there’s one or two scathing reviews out there, overall it was pretty warmly received and tracks from the record even pop up in TV shows & Hollywood films occasionally, which is always nice.
