WHAT NEXT?

Today, was the day a statue grew out of my head, and all the while the police were waiting, patiently waiting in the background, to arrest the mutant that was me. WHAT NEXT? I was lost somewhere in life’s whirlpool, Drowning in a sea of sweet dreams, Somehow rescued, I looked all around me, Saw

WHY?

“I may well have seen the light, but I question the point of a kettle when I drink neither tea nor coffee” (I think this is meant to be a deep philosophical type random thought, but I never really know with these things. That’s a cool light in the kettle though) WHY? Counting shadows in

WORLD OF SHADOWS

  Another pic from the Festival of Marionettes held in Charleville-Mezieres, Ardennes, France. It’s on again this September and I shall try to get back there. The word surreal doesn’t do it justice. Anyhow, I haven’t posted any music lately so I thought I’d make amends. I’ve already posted several songs from my old concept

(the picture is of clouds over France taken from Dover Harbour this morning) Just a thought, thought up driving home on Sunday. CONTRADICTION (not a poem or a song) To a land of faith and plenty, Came the lonesome refugee, All he wanted was a safe place, To live, unchained and free, Yet when he

LEMON GROVES

I wrote this song, Lemon Groves, about 4 years ago, around the time I discovered The Sopranos and was pretty much addicted, watching each series back to back. The song is a very much a demo and it is a tale of Mafia murder in Scilly. Hope you like it. If you fancy a visit,

THE GIRL WHO KNEW EVERYTHING – a lyric

Isn’t it strange when things we want to keep but have no present use for get stored in the library at the back of our minds for safe keeping. Then, as time goes by, sometimes these things get covered in brain dust and seem to be totally forgotten, like they never happened in the first

COMING TO THE NEW LANDS

I’ve never been to America, certainly never to 20th century New York, yet in this piece, another from my concept album Cosa Nostra, (made using samples of ‘found sound’- i.e. using sound samples I ‘found’ then captured and manipulated to create music/sound art) I needed to recreate the flavour of the city as it would

So, that’s what I’ve done. What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? The Sea, wherever
