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

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. I finally found them on yet another forgotten external hard drive.  These ones are from

WHO’S THE VERMIN NOW?

The old man with a walking stick pointed it at the squirrels in the graveyard. He told the little kid walking with him that the squirrels were vermin. The kid said he liked them and wanted one as a pet. The old man answered, ‘No way’. Ten years later, the old man with the walking

A CAT IN SYRIA

9am – Saturday’s early morning clouds dish out a warning that a better than average, but not all that when it comes to serious storms, Storm Jorge is on his way (you can just see the coast of France on the horizon – in sunshine! – if you look hard enough) 10am – Yesterdays death

SEMI-FINAL TIME & LIVING IN HOPE

A few months ago ReverbNation gave me the opportunity to submit a song to the people organising the annual ‘International Song Contest’ in Nashville. I forgot all about it until the news that my number, ‘Devil’s Kiss’ – a ballad featuring the unique Fifi Rong sharing the vocals with me – had been accepted. Yesterday,

THE MUSICIAN’S CURSE

If you check out the ‘Cyclists Dismount’ sign you’ll see why. It doesn’t say a lot for Kyran’s mum, whoever

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

THE WORLD ENDED AT MIDNIGHT

The ceiling of my favourite Turkish restaurant Twice a week I go down to the café for a free breakfast, usually the eggs Benedict with mushrooms on the side that I’m addicted to, and as ever the old fool – I’ll not name – gives out his working man’s academic view of the world. Like

OLD & NEW

I’m usually looking out at the sea when I take a pic. This one from a summer that’s gone is looking in from the ferry in the harbour ready to leave for France  Here’s the short Guitar Tab Video from the adaption of my original song ‘Pain’.  I didn’t get around to putting it into
