SIT UP & SMILE

I was lucky to get hold of these two stone pieces the other day. The pic doesn’t do them justice. They’re much bigger than they look here and weigh a ton. The best part was that they cost me next to nothing. Happy days – I like them, I just don’t know exactly why although

PRIDE & TIME

‘Everything there is’ I can’t stop myself thinking about plastic. Boring but true. Like having a song on a loop inside your head, plastic has got under my skin. It’s like I’ve been set up to hate the stuff. That’s a good thing. Media sometimes does that. Not always. As a result I’ve ended up

ZOOLON’S ESCAPE

Brian, ‘The Don of The Sparrow Mafia’ wasn’t there at first. There were twenty or so of his mob flying from table to table trying to nick a few crumbs here and there, that’s all. Then, when he eventually showed up, all the other bloke sparrows did a runner and as ever his harem of

THE RANDOM ‘SPOT’ OF ZOOLON

(pic taken in those glorious days of hope; the days before the ‘spot’ arrived)  How can anyone run a business, even an online business like mine, if they are cursed with a ‘spot’? I eat healthily, work out in the gym, rarely drink any alcohol, don’t smoke or take drugs and have an OCD thing

MARCH OF THE DEAD

(The picture is a photo inside a cave. I took it somewhere in the middle of France) For the first time since mine died I got to take a dog for a short walk over the weekend. A small, cool dog called Barney. Inevitably, I had a couple of random thoughts while walking him. Well,

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

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

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
