Lovely Sunny Day (raspberry canes forever)

Rocking to and fro on your hobby horse

Your head is rolling off into the universe

She was a trilobite

She was a trilobite

A shell of speckled bakelite

(snippet)


Old song from 1988(?) revamped
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Woodcock Pilots

Fills the heart with a joy to know

We'll soon depart for the holly holm

(snippet)

Another ornithological song
Woodcock Pilot - an old folk name for the goldcrest, the smallest European bird. People believed the goldcrest would hitch a ride on the back of migrating woodcock as they appeared too small to make the journey by themselves.

Sparrows

It's a fine lie you're in

With songs that only sparrows sing

This thing called school

Though I went to school

I was never really there

(snippet)

Aside from the guitars, percussion and lead synth (theKorg Sigma with all the stops pulled out) most of the sounds for this track were sources from an old Trio audio generator then manipulated on the computer.

Vacuum Mind

Are you happy with that vacuum mind?

Spending all that money just to stand in line

(snippet)


Backing track recorded on iPad then transferred to PC for vocals and mixing. Ought to be played faster really

I saw an owl

I saw an owl up in the tree

And the owl it was looking at me...Oh No!

(snippet)

Daftcore Psychedelia
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Woodland Song

Went gathering fruit and nuts did roam

I traipsed through beech and hazel, oak and maple grown

Now darkness falls I head for home


This track is an amalgam of slightly disjointed elements that are hopefully not too jarring. The track arose from some rhythmic elements created with Xoxos' physical modelling synthesizers. The strange machine like results suggested some kind of agricultural apparatus but in the end, it became an ode to plodding through deciduous territory.  Xoxos' plugins can be found here http://www.xoxos.net/
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dust and Rocks

There's traits you can't rub out

They always know if you're only human

(snippet)

Odd nonsense with a sense of dislocation. Features a doubled up Korg Sigma synth
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Rain for Sale

Come gather round

They're selling smiles in market town

The frozen kind...

(snippet)

A demo for a song - it has some issues but the 'proper' versions never sounded as fresh.
