‘TIME ITSELF’ & MUSHROOMS

  ‘One Day Soon’ by Zoolon For once, body pong levels and smelly breath weren’t too bad in the queue at the post office yesterday even though it was a hot day. Maybe my own breath wasn’t too good as I’ve been adding a lot of garlic to my mushroom cooking. Worrying, as I’m addicted

THE THIEF FROM THE EAST

I was having a breakfast of hot chocolate & pain aux raisins in the café this morning when I spotted this black bin enjoying a cup of coffee. He didn’t have a lot to say for himself. Odd. A couple of nights back, about 1am I saw from my attic window two little fox cubs

GOOGLE EARTH, A BUS RIDE & A BALLERINA

Ballerina Art by Shelby McQuilkin-abstract figurative artist  A couple of posts back I mentioned a mate of mine asking the most stupid question anyone has ever asked.

SHADOWS HIDE MY SCARS

‘Shadows Hide My Scars’ is the final song from my ‘Liquid Truth’ album written about 4 years ago. This concept album, as you might recall from previous posts, is themed around Plato’s ‘Allegory of the Cave’. This demo version reflects the moment when ‘the prisoner’ leaves the cave he’s lived in forever and heads off

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

JUST A SHADOW ON A WALL

  I think I took this picture in Nantes, France. Anyway, another demo song recorded in a bedroom from a while ago when access to a studio was not always easy. Not that professional of me I know, however more studio recorded new music is on its way as I’m recording new songs all the
