EX 201

 

I just spent the last couple of weeks with a Moog and an old 70’s Korg drum machine, an electric piano and a guitar and a delay pedal to create this kraut ambient album.

I spent about two weeks editing it as it was all live passes. In the end, I couldn’t decide anymore where to do the edits so I left it as it was (mostly). Not sure it works that well but there are some nice moments so I thought I’d put it on Bandcamp anyway.

In the past this would have probably gone out as a MuZiK KluB release.

The Rhyme Of The Dying Artist

 

And as he lay there dying, he knew that he always realised life was not very long. It came as no surprise to him that he had gotten old and was now on his deathbed. Now there were no more questions left. No more ‘how long do I have’ and no more ‘what to do with the time I have left.’

Now the sense of wonder at being alive was gone. He knew that when that happens, all is lost.

It was never the idea of getting old that bothered him, it was just the idea of actually dying that seemed such a drag. He only had one life and had turned the whole thing into one big experiment. He didn’t know where he was going, but he certainly knew it wouldn’t be boring.

His art had been both a doorway to perception and a house to live in. If he had not learned about his art, he knew that it would not have mattered what he had done with his life. It was all about alienation and where he fitted into society.

He knew he was an individual who never felt he needed to have somebody qualify his work in any particular way. He was working for himself and him alone. He knew that his biggest mistakes came when he tried to second guess or please his audience. His work was always stronger when he got very selfish about it.

And as he lay there dying, he knew that life was always going to be short.

Das Ist England came out on Friday and is now already sold out in most shops including Rough Trade and Juno. I now have only 5 copies left to sell through the Bandcamp site. There’s a few on eBay and one shop is already selling them for £30.

Get it while you can. It rocks! 🙂

Jawohl.

Counting Clouds Autobiography Pre-Sale…

I had the A5 hardback proof of my autobiography delivered today. It looks great. I’m actually quite proud of it, I’ve written a book with over 300 pages. What fun.

If you missed the Kickstarter then you can pre-order a copy now from the Bandcamp site. It costs a little bit more than people paid for it on the Kickstarter campaign, they get a discount, because they funded it happening.
