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

I’ve taken a sidestep from composing just songs and instrumentals recently, and added ‘backing tracks’ as a new ‘Zoolon’ product. The objective with the backing track videos I’ve made is to assist guitar players and/or songwriters in creating their own songs via my posts on my YouTube Channel It would be a major help to my

‘HEEBIE JEEBIE & MISS MONEY SPIDER’

‘Scarecrow’ – Artist Unknown ‘Children’s Story?’ Even though writing, to me, is nearly always about composing lyrics, someone bet me that I couldn’t write a children’s story. Odd. All credit to writers. It’s not easy without a melody to hide behind. Whether this counts as one, I’m not sure. Anyway, I gave it a go.
