TWO FACES

‘China Album Cover’ On the one hand it’s been a good week as I’ve just got my music into China. Hopefully the bespoke for ‘China only’ album ‘All Winter Long’ will be heard there via all the major streaming platforms. That’s the plan anyway. On the other hand, I’ve got the flu and and can’t

MAYBE TOMORROW, MAYBE NOT

‘The Long Way Home’ My song ‘All Winter Long’ off the ‘Rainbows End’ album seems to fit the mood of the new words that I found washed up on the beach – sort of. SONG FOR ANOTHER DAY Dreamers dance while dancers dreamSongbirds love while lovers sing No frozen sun, no burning snow Maybe tomorrow,

ZOOLON – THE NEW 007?

‘Milo the laser chaser’ What an interesting couple of days in the life of Zoolon. First of all I’d taken a visit to a pal of mine and his girlfriend who had just moved into a new flat they’d bought. It’s a nice place. Better still, not long after I arrived so did Milo the

WE ONCE WALKED HAND IN HAND

‘Before the Light Went Out’ Mother Earth is now a victim She’s not a magnet any more We’ve stripped her of her blue, green cloak Looked the other way as her children were washed up on the shore “Let’s give her a cloak of plastic That’ll warm her up real good Tell you what? Let’s

‘NO-BELL PRIZE’ FOR DOOR KNOCKERS

‘No-Bell Prize Winner 2014’ Artist Unknown A confession. This is true. When I was a kid about 5 or 6 years old I remember my parents talking about the Nobel Prize. At the time I didn’t really take in what they were talking about. To me it sounded like it was a prize awarded to

MUSHROOMS, GRAVESTONES, SPIDERS & BEES

‘Mushroom Quartet’ I don’t make a habit of hanging out in graveyards. The only reason I found myself in one on Saturday morning was because it was pouring with rain and the path through the graves of St Eanswythe Church was a shortcut from where my car was parked and the place I was heading

ZOOLON ON SALFORD CITY RADIO

I had a dream of the nightmare kind last night. I dreamed that I couldn’t play the piano anymore. Not good. I was still thinking about that when going through my messages earlier today. Then the day got better. Salford City Radio notified me that my song – the one that featured the unique Fifi Rong

THE SUN DON’T SHINE

‘A broken mirror left behind’ A couple of posts back I wrote some semi-lyrical words. I called them ‘The Secrets of the Blind’ I have been playing around with them hoping to get a new song together. I’m still playing around, adding a slightly different take on the evolution of the songs words and melody. If

COUNT TO THREE

‘Calorific Tardis’ BAD ADVICE ‘to be adapted into a lyric’ You’ve got the motor; you’ve got the SatNav and a tank full But you’re still stuck on the inside looking out Blind faith, too blind and blinkered to realize The kick you get living with all that doubt There’s a doorway to Hell or is

IN PRAISE OF SHADOWS

‘The Magic of Shadows Set Free’ Just a song, plus its lyrics, today. It’s called ‘In Praise of Shadows’ and it’s from my first album ‘Dream Rescuer’. I hope you enjoy. IN PRAISE OF SHADOWS This is a song for all the shadows Where the good and the bad both hide A safe haven for
