ZOOLON’S 60 SECONDS COVER OF ‘SPEED OF SOUND’

My ‘one minute’ take on Coldplay’s ‘Speed of Sound’, a song the band never really liked, although I think the melody is right up there and relaxing, plus I rate Coldplay as one of the great bands. Anyhow, here is my guitar solo ‘one minute’ cover from my Instagram. I hope you enjoy; View this

MUSHROOMS ON MARS

‘Hot Chocolate Central’ – Café Culture, Nivelles, Belgium For reasons I can’t explain I was wondering if mushrooms would grow on Mars. I never did work it out. Probably they don’t, but thinking about Mars I remembered this song I wrote. It’s one of my earlier ones. I last put it on the blog when I

‘DON’T LOOK BACK IN ANGER’

‘Six Wives of Henry’ All I asked for was a plain omelette. I was in France at the time so what I said must have got lost in translation. What I got served up was a mushroom omelette. I hated mushrooms. Always had.  However, one bite later I discovered I loved mushrooms. That was about

LOUD QUESTIONS

‘A Hill with a View’ by Zoolon Just ½ an hour ago I got stopped by a lady in the street who said, “I’m in dire need of puzzles”. True. I had no idea if this was a question or not, so I grinned a hopeless grin and walked on. Ultra odd. Early hours, Sunday.

‘MANDY’S DOOR’

‘For Free’ by Zoolon The brainwasher wearing the grey suit that sparkled said he drove an Audi Quattro. He asked what I drove. I lied and said a skateboard. He asked why I didn’t wear, “A smart suit like mine”. I couldn’t be bothered to answer.  Also, he looked like someone who might end up

SACRED HOLLYWOOD
