A POSTCARD FROM BEFORE

(me having a laugh with my GoPro) I’ve been mucking about with new lyrics/melodies lately. Some are working; some I let fly away back where they came from. For random reasons I’ll probably never figure out, history has been on my mind – perhaps the flavour of French history from last week has stayed with […]

LOST HOPES & DREAMS

This photo I took the other day, leaves little doubt as to what ‘Kyran’s mum’ – whoever she is – does in her spare time. Changing the subject, I’ve always thought that you know you’re in trouble when you can’t bend your knees. I was wrong. On Saturday, I was wearing headphones playing a guitar […]

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY

Every so often news bulletins remind me that I’m right in generally preferring animals over humans. The words below will one day soon be in a song. The ones who didn’t make it home now bare no malice, Their graves await them come a new sad dawn, Those guilty of their murder share the same […]

PAIN (aka LOVE’S SHADOW)

I think every album is allowed one simple acoustic number, so long as the lyric has a true meaning. This song called ‘Pain’ from my ‘Dream Rescuer’ album has a lyric that is personal to me and has such a true meaning. Written it just a few moments on a day I’ll always remember. It […]

‘REXIE BELIEVES IN MAGIC’

Another song from my new album, ‘DREAM RESCUER’. This one is called ‘REXIE BELIEVES IN MAGIC’. Here’s the lyric in case you fancy singing along. I hope you enjoy; Rexie believes in magic Has done all along Shipwrecked and nowhere else to go Its time he learns to head back home   Rexie believes in […]

A POEM BECOMES A LYRIC

Here’s a track from my new album, ‘Dream Rescuer’. The song is called ‘Sunlight & The Dust” and is adapted from a poem by my father, Mike Steeden.  I’ve never used the words of others when composing before, yet I thought this poem would not find the journey to the Land of Lyrics too troublesome. […]

ZOOLON’S & THE ‘TO-DO’ APP

(me, moments before I remembered I suffer from vertigo) I’ve had this TASK ‘to-do’s’ App on my phone for ages. I’m not sure why I’ve got it because most times I forget it exists. The thing is, lately I’ve been so busy I thought I might as well give it a second chance. So, last […]

DREAM RESCUER – ZOOLON’S NEW ALBUM

My new album ‘Dream Rescuer’ has just this minute been published on Bandcamp. You can listen to; even purchase if you wish (the price is just £6 including the dreaded, yet unavoidable VAT) by following the link below; https://zoolon.bandcamp.com/album/dream-rescuer I know this post is unashamed marketing, but if you do visit and like what you hear, […]

DREAM RESCUER

  I’ve not had much time to think random thoughts, or even have a chat with my mate Brian the Sparrow lately, but at last the new Zoolon album is done.  It’s the strangest feeling to have completed it – part pleased; part relieved; part empty. The thing is – and I’m sure you writer’s […]

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 […]
