following on from that last post….

can anyone recommend some diy blogs/zines/labels who might be interested in hearing some slow, sad and badly recorded music?

this is what i mean about being crap at self promotion…

so warm in hell

thanks to anyone who has downloaded the albums over the past few months. it means a huge amount to me. i’m not very good at self promotion, its a time when i feel the most vulnerable and begin to doubt everything i do, so i tend to avoid any promotion at all. so far everything has been found by the right people though, and i am eternally thankful.

this year i am hopefully going to put out an ep, and then a 3rd album. the idea for the 3rd record has been in my head for a few years now, and i’m going to need a bit more than i currently have to realise it. i’ve been looking in to recording in a church, which would mean getting a live band together…

there are a few songs left over from last years sessions, and a few different takes of songs knocking around, as well as songs that were never recorded, but won’t fit on album no.3. so i’ll cram the best of these on to an ep in the next month or so.

finally, hello to all the new followers i’ve had over the past few months. i hope you’re doing okay.

here is album number 2 of 2013. it was recorded to tape in 3 days in my bedroom and in a studio. the wonderful maria marzaioli plays violin on a few tracks. its more acoustic than the last record, and a theme of religion and spirituality flows through all of the songs in some way.
the title comes from my favourite anime series, ‘the big o’. but it originally was a phrase written on the axes of executioners in the middle ages. being killed on earth for your sins makes you innocent in heaven.
as always, the artwork was by jasmine scott. 
thankyou xx

Today I begin recording album #2

Today I begin recording album #2

RIP Lou Reed. I have often made statements about Berlin being the best album ever made, but when i was 17, it truly was. farewell to a songwriter who will never have another equivalent.
