THE YEAR OF THE RAT

‘Artwork by Misslyka’ During WWII, Winston Churchill was asked to cut arts funding in favour of the war effort, he simply replied, ‘Then what are we fighting for?’ It’s a shame that that turned out to be false news. He never said it. Even so, it’s a great line for the current crisis in the

JUMP THE QUEUE

‘Waiting, watching’ For my ambient, dark piece, ‘The Forgotten Daughter of Zeus’ as of now read, ‘The Forgotten Cheated Souls’. The more I hear about the greedy idiots who are stockpiling food while, for example, NHS staff don’t get a look in when it comes to visiting a supermarket after a long shift is over

CORONAVIRUS CUP – ITALY 1O v ENGLAND NIL

Pic via Informassive ‘If music be the food of love, play on’ ~ William Shakespeare Different nations react differently in the face of the global virus crisis.

PIGEONS, SHADOWS & GRAFFITI

An ambient piece I composed last year, the title track on the album,‘The Pigeons Are Switzerland’ Ever since I posted some photos of graffiti the other week its been nagging at me that I had older, better photos filed somewhere.

8TH MAY 1945

‘CLEVER ARTWORK FROM HUFF POST UK’ This year represents 75 years since WW2 in Europe ended, freedom was restored, fascism was defeated and both my now dead granddads got to get back home to the land they’d left behind. Without those two men I wouldn’t exist. LET THEIR NAMES BE SHOUTED OUT Let the ghosts

ARTISTIC GHOST TALKS TO A SIGNPOST

I never thought I’d write a potential – maybe unlikely, thinking about it – ‘duet’ skeleton lyric where a ghost gets to talk to a signpost about brick walls. I must still be running a temperature from my latest cold. Anyway, here it is all dressed up in some of Folkestone’s graffiti art. See what

I HAVE THE TIME

‘A Long Way Down’ – French Pyrenees Time in a circle Life in a straight line Time waits for no man Park up too long and there’s a fine Time as a painting In an empty gallery Frozen in the moment What you get is what you see Time as an enemy Don’t need no

SNOWFLAKES AND FIRE

‘The Sea Puts on a Show For Free’ I was fighting with insomnia when I wrote this. Couldn’t sleep. It didn’t help that The Arsenal had lost to the Chavs in a game we deserved to win. It’s at times like these words choose themselves and I keep out of their way. The death toll
