ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Members:

Myself on guitars, bass, synths, vocals & various drum machines. I do not use computers at all... Recorded digitally on 8-track in my home studio. Tone, rhythm & melody, using as few notes as possible These are some of the key elements that I strive for. Like soundtracks to movies--sometimes only a couple of notes are needed to evoke a feeling. That's my excuse anyway.....Played guitar for decades.......... Sang in a church choir as a young boy, until my voice, and a couple of other things dropped!!!

Influences:

Many, many unsigned experimental heros. Also---Wishbone Ash, The Shadows, Pink Floyd, Gary Numan, Aqua Velvets, Iron Maiden, Hawkwind, Tangerine Dream, The Atlantics, Slacktone, The Surf Kings, The Ventures, Dick Dale.

Tone, rhythm & melody, using as few notes as possible These are some of the key elements that I strive for. Like soundtracks to movies--sometimes only a couple of notes are needed to evoke a feeling. That's my excuse anyway.....Played guitar for decades...I played the horendous working men's club circuit in Liverpool and Manchester, England many moons ago. I was in bands that played only cover versions of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who etc, etc. If we tried to play anything of our own, we would get bottles, cigarettes, meat pies (no panties though), thrown at us. It was purgatory, all in the past. Now I just play my own tunes, The Good, The Bad, and the Friggin' Ugly! So there it is........You can get my stuff in on- cdbaby.com, iTunes, Soundclick, Rhapsody and dozens of indie Web music sites for a mere pittance-I need a little bread, maaan to pay for my equipment. Screw corporate bullshiting suits! Thanks for you intergalactic support! Some bizarre facts from the distant past...I actually played in a club band called 'T.O.T.' (acronym for for 'Tits On That'),in England in the seventies. We played working men's clubs in Liverpool and Manchester. If we did not do several cover songs of The Beatles and The Who, we would get thing thrown at us. One club was so run down, the ceiling was leaking whilst we were playing. Water went right on to my brand new Marshall amp (which took me years to pay for)--it blew up,and fused everything.
Influences Many, many unsigned experimental heros. Also---Wishbone Ash, The Shadows, Pink Floyd, Gary Numan, Aqua Velvets, Iron Maiden, Hawkwind, Tangerine Dream, The Atlantics, Slacktone, The Surf Kings, Ian Brown, Dick Dale, The Ventures.
Sounds Like Some of the above and sooo much more (or less). Sounds like--An aural extravaganza of bizarre sounds rushing through my brain, the by-product of decades of listening (voluntarily and involuntarily) to a plethora of strange sounds, on this planet and several others. Some of my tracks sound like ice-cold beer being squirted into your ears at a controlled pressure, so as not to perforate your ear drums. Other tracks sound like Floridian manatees being hit by speed boats navigated by totally drunken pricks at the helm. Most of my other tracks--I have no explanation for them---you judge--this is not 'American Fookin' Idol! maaaan.
For some reason, this is my own favorite CD. Just so weird, like me.

Milly

Wonderful and Weird
Great original, mainly instrumental music with a difference. Amazing that one guy writes, records, and plays all of the instruments himself. Music for those tired of the same old corporate stuff. I also have his first CD 'Sonic Invasion!, which is all instrumentals. Well done!!

Newty

Strange but cool
Definatley not old-school surf instrumental. Mixture of instrumentals and vocal tracks. Interesting stuff. Not afraid to experiment..

Solo guy too

More sophisticated than his first CD
His first CD was raw but real. With this one, he has obviously invested in better recording equipment, but kept the music real and not sterile. Many fine moments and I really look forward to his next CD which I believe is going to be released real soon, according to his website on Myspace. Just love indie artists like this who don't have to answer to 'suits'.

Boogie Boarder

Superb CD
Lovely mixture of mainly insrumentals played and written by one man, on 8-track digital recorder. Guitars, bass, keybords and songs all original. Very well recorded and mixed. I play it all the time in my car stereo. No filler on here. I look for ward to listenibg to some more of his music-A weird but great mixture of surf instrumental, spaghetti western instrumental and a couple of vocal track, well done. Highly recommended.
