Tired and Broken.

  Dear friends and long suffering supporters!  So I have been busying myself with the following escapades – namely moving house. Randomly I have also played in an absinthe bar (supporting the great Lucky Jim) and shot a live music video video in a loft – no lie.  My wooden Buddha has suffered a broken […]


Week Four. Weak For…

Finally I’m sat at my desk. I can actually see the desk – this is progress. Around me are the preliminary sketches that could form part of my album artwork. I’ve also been letter stamping all of the song titles by hand and enjoying every minute of it – satisfying the designer in me. I’ve […]

Angels in the North.

Looking back

I’m not one of life’s whingers, I subscribe to a neat little motto GOWI. Get on with It! So I’m poorly, so what? More opportunity to write and post. My sense of smell is returning and the scent of pine from the blinged-up tree is a welcome aroma. I’m alive! I’m already thinking back over […]
