New Album Recording…


I’ve been recording a new six by seven album at a studio in Nottingham called JT Soar. It’s a fantastic studio with an Amek desk that used to belong to Iron Maiden. It’s also got two tape machines and lots of old tape echos and weird and wonderful vintage keyboards. The owner of the studio is Phil and he knows his stuff.

I shall be mixing the album and recording more stuff at Rockfield Studios in Wales in early December.

It’s coming together and sounding great.

Tomorrow I shall start a Kickstarter campaign to fund the album. I’ll be doing a new ‘Bleak Strategies’ book with it too, for Christmas.

The album will be released on CD before Christmas.

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.
