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

TRADING INSULTS

(a statue I spotted along West Cliff, Ramsgate – for reasons unknown, it seems to fit my song posted below) As I understand it the 38th parallel is the dividing line between North and South Korea. I think it was about 4 years ago when the North were talking about how close they were to

THE DREAM RESCUER

(The coast of France seen from Dover Harbour, England a couple of days ago. It was hard keeping the camera still in the wind hence the focus is a bit like it) THE DREAM RESCUER You rescued dreams and nightmare’s schemes, Spinning around inside your head, You kept them in your diary, A book you

ZOOLON’S MISSING EASTER EGG

All I wanted was a seriously dark chocolate Easter Egg. Not only did I not get a seriously dark chocolate Easter Egg, I didn’t get any. You’d have thought at least my own mother would have got her beloved son a seriously dark chocolate Easter Egg. She didn’t. Given that two years ago I took

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

FROM ECHOES TO DOWNLOADS

(above, a photo I took in Ramsgate for no particular reason)  Zoolon’s brief take on, ‘From Echoes to Downloads’. We all take for granted that we can download whatever music we like. Even vinyl has made a spectacular comeback, plus CD’s are still selling well.  What interests me is just when was it the case

RANDOM EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF ZOOLON

BRIAN THE SPARROW’S BUTT I first met Brian the Sparrow about a month ago. Spring was beginning to happen. The day was just about warm, so I was sat outside having a breakfast of hot chocolate and a croissant. When I’d finished   eating I left a few croissant crumbs on my plate. It was at

NO ‘SONG OF LOVE’ TODAY

(written following the tragic events in London yesterday, a diary entry, not a poem or lyric) Wearing headphones on a windy, rainy afternoon, Safe, warm, tickling a keyboard and lost in composition, Just trying to conjure up a new ‘song of love’ to sing, While outside, and far away from here, in The Smoke, Another
