In the absence, so far, this month of a newsletter, I thought I should let you know that all the drum tracks for the new album have now been recorded! The final track – all 20 minutes of it – turned out particularly spiffing and I can’t wait for you … Read more
We have now completed the drum recording of 5 of the seven tracks for the new album. Just two more to go . . . one of which is being worked on this week. When that one is done, all we will have left is the 20 minute title track. … Read more

Just posted a brand new song (yes, another!) to our SoundCloud page. The song is called Avoidance of Mirrors and is an unfinished demo, though you’d be hard-pressed to identify it as such. It’s another hard / prog song with its roots very firmly in the 70’s. The mellotron used … Read more

Here is something interesting: I was poking around some email stats and learned that mobile email clients have not yet taken over the world! Below is a screen grab from our newsletter system showing the percentage breakdown by client: Poor old Microsoft doesn’t really get a look in!
Called Inconsistent Echoes, this tune is a prime slab of Prog-Funk-Rock! Sounds impossible, but it works. It’s very funky, has a mean Canterbury style organ solo + mad crazy wah-wah guitars. On top of that is an old radio sample that I like but am not convinced I want to … Read more
